Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE
Dir: Stephen Chiodo
In space, no one can eat ice cream. A group of clown-like extraterrestrials invades a small town to harvest its inhabitants; only a group of young people realizes that these clowns are no laughing matter. One of the most beloved ’80s cult films, filled with zany gags and chilling terror.
In one of his most sublime performances, Peter Sellers stars as a simpleton who gains great influence when his pronouncements are mistaken for profundities in director Hal Ashby’s hilarious adaptation of the Jerzy Kosinski novel. As gardener Chance, he must leave the Washington, D.C., estate to which he’s tended his entire life after its owner dies. Wandering the streets, he’s struck by a limousine and taken under the wing of its passenger, Eve Rand (Shirley MacLaine), and her power-broker husband (Oscar winner Melvyn Douglas). Be sure to stay through the end credits!
Senior A.J. Montoya (Cody Esquivel) is his high school’s star quarterback until he breaks his hand. In desperation, AJ realizes that his only shot at athletic glory is to team up with his longtime rivals - the cross country team, quirky misfits that have the potential to win big under the guidance of their coach (Efren Ramirez), a likable slacker who is chasing a big win of his own. Shot in El Monte, California, this teen comedy-sports drama hybrid will resonate with viewers whether they’re former jocks, nerds or something in between.
