It’s the summer of double features this Summer in Fifth Reel land, come down and experience two of the very best Carpenter/Russell flicks from the 80’s – ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK + BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
In the future, crime is out of control and New York City's Manhattan is a maximum security prison. Grabbing a bargaining chip right out of the air, convicts bring down the President's plane in bad old Gotham. Gruff Snake Plissken, a one-eyed lone warrior new to prison life, is coerced into bringing the President, and his cargo, out of this land of undesirables. – Imdb
Big Trouble synopsis:
A rough-and-tumble trucker helps rescue his friend's fiance from an ancient sorcerer in a supernatural battle beneath Chinatown. – Imdb
For the intermission between movies we’ll have a special performance from MADEMOISELLE! “Using just drums, bass and dual vocals, Mademoiselle have quickly become one of Calgary’s favourite punk duos. Despite their rebellious lyrics and thrashy playing style, one of the best things about the band is the beaming smiles they rock throughout their sets.” – Sled Island
9:00 – Escape from New York
11:00 – Mademoiselle
11:30 – Big Trouble in Little China

FIFTH REEL HOUSE RULES:
The Globe Cinema is located at 617 8 Ave S.W. Debit and Credit are accepted at our Box Office, but the bar and concession are CASH ONLY (There is an ATM available on the main floor). The Fifth Reel bar is located upstairs, where you will find our menu of alcoholic beverages. Popcorn etc. is located at the concession stand downstairs.
Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quoting- a- long are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you…
