Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Intermedia Film Distribution Limited,
Dir: Kathryn Bigelow
Pure adrenaline from director Kathryn Bigelow, with Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent convinced by his partner (Gary Busey) to go undercover in the surf community to infiltrate a gang of bank robbers wearing masks of ex-presidents Reagan, Carter, Nixon and Johnson. Reeves soon finds himself falling under the spell of the gang’s philosophical and charismatic leader, Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). The L.A. surf/crime action movie! “There's enough high-octane, heart-racing excitement for a dozen movies.” – Derek Adams, Time Out (London); “Bigelow is an interesting director for this material. She is interested in the ways her characters live dangerously for philosophical reasons. … Bigelow and her crew are also gifted filmmakers. … Surprisingly effective.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
Wanna watch thugs crush helpless station wagons with a monster truck? Wanna see Patrick Swayze tear out a guy’s throat with his bare hands? This is your movie! Swayze stars as a top-notch bouncer (or “cooler”) brought in to Jasper, Missouri, to tame the Double Deuce club; complicating his work is local hood Ben Gazzara. Kelly Lynch and Sam Elliott costar in this action-packed guilty pleasure.
Hot on the heels of the Pantages run of musical smash "Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage," here’s the film that started it all, directed by Emile Ardolino and starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. Grey plays Frances “Baby” Houseman, a college-bound 17-year-old spending the summer of 1963 at a Catskills resort with her family. When she falls for working-class dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) her world opens up, but her doctor father (Jerry Orbach) puts an end to the romance. But "Nobody puts Baby in the corner!"
