HOLIDAY SPIRIT ON THE BIG SCREEN 2015
Double Feature!
DIE HARD / LETHAL WEAPON
DIE HARD
1988, 20th Century Fox, 131 min, Dir: John McTiernan

Bruce Willis plays wise-cracking cop John McClane, an endearing Everyman who becomes an unlikely hero when a group of professional thieves takes his wife’s office building hostage at Christmastime. One of the most purely entertaining movies ever made, this fast, funny and visually elegant thriller set the template for the Hollywood action flicks that followed it and made Willis a movie star.


LETHAL WEAPON
1987, Warner Bros., 110 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

Two mismatched LAPD detectives - on-the-edge Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and 50-year-old family man Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) – are assigned to investigate a death that leads them to a heroin smuggling ring. The quintessential buddy-cop film, LETHAL WEAPON launched a hugely successful franchise, kick-starting Shane Black’s career as an action screenwriter and giving Gary Busey one of his juiciest roles as menacing heavy Joshua.


Screening format: Digital (DIE HARD) and 35mm (LETHAL WEAPON)
