Gen X Cinema Double Feature: The Goonies & Big Trouble in Little China
8/19/2017, starts 7:00 PM

A new film series designed to appeal to the culture, tastes and interests of the GenX crowd will kick off with a double feature on Saturday, August 19, starting at 7:00 pm.

The evening’s fun starts off with “The Goonies,” an energetic, noisy mix of Spielbergian sentiment and funhouse tricks that will appeal to kids and nostalgic adults alike. Made in 1985. Rated PG. 1 hr 55 mins. Stars John Brolin, Sean Astin, Anne Ramsey, and John Matuzak.

The second feature is “Big Trouble In Little China” which stars Kurt Russell; directed by John Carpenter.  Brimming with energy and packed with humor, this GenX film distills kung fu B-movies as affectionately as it subverts them.  Rated PG-13, 1 hr 33 mins.

 

Both films are sponsored by The Game Hub and DJ's Pizza. Entry is by donation. Wine and beer will be available for sale in the lobby. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.

 

The series is presented by the Lake County Theatre Company and the Soper Reese Theatre and will run through December. See the Soper Reese Theatre’s web site for information on future GenX films.
