Presented by CELLULOID SORCERESS!


From John Badham, the director of Saturday Night Fever, WarGames, Short Circuit and Blue Thunder comes one of the greatest buddy-cop action comedies of all time!


We again go back to celebrate '80s icon and pioneer activist Michael J. Fox in a performance that ranks among his best. Fox is Nick Lang, nit-wit Hollywood superstar looking to break out of his teen-heartthrob image and get into something tough and gritty.


James Woods is John Moss, grizzled cop that no-one loves, spreading toxicity across New York City in his pursuit of rampaging serial killer The Party Crasher (Stephen Lang in a classic role).


When John is assigned Nick as a ride-along researching his next Smoking Gunn picture everything goes....you guessed it, the hard way.


Also starring Annabella Sciorra, Christina Ricci, L.L. Cool J, Luis Guzman and the late, great Penny Marshall, THE HARD WAY is directed with Badham's absolute command of action cinema, and is a rare treat on #35mm and the big screen.


With introduction and a selection of #35mm trailers.
