SCREENWRITER STEVEN DE SOUZA IN PERSON FOR Q&A, MODERATED BY MATT GOURLEY ("I WAS THERE TOO" PODCAST!) DOORS 7:30PM, SHOW 8PM. Join us for a big-screen 30th Anniversary celebration of Ah-nold’s dystopian action-comedy classic, one now more relevant than ever. The film prophetically imagines “LA, 2017” -- a future where the media manipulates with fake news, a reality show host gives orders to the military, and the populace is too engrossed in their screens to care. Schwarzenegger stars as a working stiff framed for a massacre he didn’t commit. In exchange for freedom, he’s the next contestant on America’s most popular (and deadly) game show locking inmates into mortal combat against comic-book villain meatheads: the hockey-playing professor! The electrocuting opera tenor! The power tool dad! What follows is a nonstop barrage of fisticuffs, machine guns, flamethrowers and some of THE BEST one-liners ever put to celluloid.http://www.theecho.com/event/1429777/
