They Live. We Sleep. John Carpenter’s 1988 satirical sci-fi cult favourite stars wrestler Roddy Piper as drifter ‘Nada’, who uncovers a global alien conspiracy with a pair of truth-revealing sunglasses.


In the deliriously entertaining, martial arts fantasy epic Big Trouble in Little China, Carpenter regular Kurt Russell stars as the effortlessly cool Jack Burton, who faces off against the deadly sorcery of David Lo Pan (James Hong, Everything Everywhere All at Once).


This is an unmissable chance to experience nostalgic eighties John Carpenter classics on the big screen, with Carpenter’s timeless, evocative music underscoring two genre favourites. We’re here to chew bubble-gum and watch films, and we’re all out of bubble-gum.
