This Thursday 5th June 2014, Grimm Up North are continuing their John Carpenter Classics season by holding a screening of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK at The Dancehouse, Oxford Road, Manchester.
It is 1997 and Manhattan Island has been turned into a maximum security prison, due to the enormous rise in the crime rate. Drug-dealer Prospero (Isaac Hayes) and his cronies hold control of the entire area, making it the most inopportune spot for a plane carrying the US president to crashland. Eye-patched anti-hero Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is entrusted with the task of rescuing his country’s leader.
Doors open at 7.30pm with the film starting at 8pm. Tickets cost £6.50 and are available to purchase online or on the door.
