Class of 1987 All-Dayer at Gorilla to feature four iconic 1980’s movies
RAD Screenings and Gorilla are set to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of some of the most iconic pieces of 80’s cinema with four of the 1987’s biggest movies being screened at the Class of 1987 All-Dayer at Gorilla.
The day launches will the action classic Lethal Weapon, featuring the breakout Hollywood performance of Mel Gibson and a script which made Shane Black one of the hottest commodities around. Spawning several sequels (and now a TV series) the buddy cop classic was a huge success, setting the tone for the action genre for years to come.
Also being screened is Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys – epic soundtrack, MTV inspired visuals and ‘cool’ vampires like Kiefer Sutherland. It’s deliciously dark, but with plenty of fun to boot.
The third film, is the fantasy madness which is Masters Of The Universe. The adaption of the ‘He-Man’ toy and animated series featured performances from Dolph Lundgren (in his first lead role following his appearance in Rocky 4), Courteney Cox and Frank Langella was one of the most controversial releases of the year and has to be seen to be believed.
The final movie of the days is the cult classic The Princess Bride, with a stellar cast featuring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Peter Falk, Billy Crystal and wrestling legend Andre The Giant, alongside one of the most quotable scripts of all time. This fantasy romp provides just as many delights for repeat viewings as it does to fresh eyes.
The Class of ‘87 All-Dayer takes place on Sunday 9 April. Doors open at midday with the first screening at 12.30. Single film tickets are £4, full marathon tickets are £10.
