Robocop-a-thon

Location: Silent Movie Theatre, 611 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
Description: The CineFamily presents a triple bill of ROBOCOP, ROBOCOP 2, and ROBOCOP 3 for your viewing pleasure.What’s better than a dystopian future cyborg policeman movie? Three dystopian future cyborg policeman movies, of course! Paul Verhoeven’s massive 1987 hit RoboCop is still, over twenty years later, the gold standard for savage satirical sci-fi, with its mixture of murderous robots, extreme gore, an iconic ‘n metallic vengeful hero, bullet ballets, outlandish commercial parodies, hideous corporate caricatures and a toxic waste mishap to end all toxic waste mishaps. And what cooler way could there be to present this classic, than with the entire franchise trilogy on 35mm! We’ll take you through the dizzying heights of Verhoven’s original, to the strange and seedy Frank Miller-penned follow-up directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back), and and finally we’ll wrap it all up with the re-cast, jet-packed and ninja-fied final entry directed by Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad). That’s more stomping killing machines, scummy creeps and exploding limbs than should be allowed by law! He may be monotone and monochrome, but there’s never been a cop like ROBOCOP
