(1986, dir. Jim Henson, w/ David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Toby Froud, Shelley Thompson)
Whether you're a child of the 80s, a first time viewer or a David Bowie devotee you'll be stunned and amazed to see this incredible film now presented in 2K digital format on the Astor's Superscreen. A young Jennifer Connelly plays Sarah, who wants nothing more than for the goblins to take her half brother, baby Toby, away. But when Sarah's wish comes true and the Goblin King (a delightful or terrifying David Bowie in tights - depending on your preference) does take Toby away she is desperate to undo what was clearly a rash plea. Full of adventure, packed with quality family friendly humour and displaying what are simply the most stunning puppets ever created. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
(1988, dir. Stephen Chiodo, w/ Grant Cramer, John Allen Nelson)
Killer Klowns From Outer Space will start at approximately 9:37pm, and finish at approximately 11:11pm.
Stand by cult film fans! We are pleased to present the bizarre 1988 comedy horror favourite, and like most movie properties of the era is being pushed for a 3D sequel in 2013. Taking a cue from 50s B Grade sci-fi (like The Blob)' Killer Klowns sees the earth under attack from aliens (that look like crazed clowns), seeking to use humans as sustenance, armed with circus-centric weapons like popcorn guns and a sideshow tent shaped space ship. Naturally it's up to a bunch of local kids to save the day. Now a certified cult classic.Features a theme song by legendary punk group The Dickies. ABFILM INFO (Astor rating)
