The summer season is upon us and you have many options on your plate. You could leap into the far-off places created by whizzbang computers or muscle men bench pressing thugs...OR you could be whisked away to the fantastical world of CHARLES GRODIN.
Special effects and finely sculpted bodies mean nothing when you don't have chemistry and this Sunday, for one-night only, you can witness pure excellence paired with sarcastic brilliance when Charles Grodin and Robert DeNiro team up in MIDNIGHT RUN in 35mm!
Charles Grodin has embezzled $15 million dollars from mob boss Dennis Farina, and it's up to bounty hunter Robert DeNiro to get him to L.A. before Grodin's bond defaults. The FBI wants Grodin to testify, the mob wants him dead, and DeNiro just wants his cash. This movie may just sound like an ODD COUPLE on the run, and, while it kind of is...it's also awesome. A post-UNTOUCHABLES De Niro wanted to take a stab at comedy, and, after being turned down for the main role in BIG, settled on this. While the studio originally wanted Cher or Robin Williams to star opposite DeNiro, director Martin "I made BEVERLY HILLS COP" Brest told the studio to go screw itself and took his project and incredible cast of character actors elsewhere, along with his co-star of choice, Mr. CHARLES GRODIN.
This film is a goldmine of comic genius and white-knuckled action as we bask in the glory of a fed-up wiseguy (De Niro) and a whiny, weasely, sarcastic Grodin stumbling their way across the country.
You WILL forge a most unlikely friendship with this movie, don't miss out on ZZANG! this Sunday. Get tickets here.
