Lone Star Late Night-Cinemuse

Escape from New York
  • January 31, 2014 - 10:00pm

Kick back with cocktails and dinner in Café Modern, then enjoy a late-night cult classic. The Café Modern bar will remain open until 10 pm for night-owl moviegoers!

This fun program debuts with four of director John Carpenter’s films starring Kurt Russell, all now acknowledged as horror/science fiction classics. Empire Magazine notes that “Kurt Russell is at his best bringing growly charisma to bear as an everyman trapped in just the kind of insanely demented situations Carpenter loved subjecting his characters to. ‘I feel like I have a smarter older brother in John,’ says Russell of the man who put an eye patch on him and made him an icon.” Admission is $7; $5 for Reel People, Modern Contemporaries, and Lone Star Film Society members; free for students with valid college/university ID.
