Pure pulse-blasting 35mm entertainment for only three bucks!

Real-life alligators will be in the theater! From 6:30 PM until showtime, you'll have a chance to get up-close and personal with a variety of alligators and have your picture taken with them!

If you’re going to destroy a 40-foot man-eating alligator, you need the right self-loathing, balding, middle-aged man for the job. Thank god for Robert Forster, a perpetually frowning cop willing to take on whatever sewer-dwelling threat is thrown at him. And this one’s a real doozy: a carnivorous, scientifically modified beast that bursts through the sidewalk to devour everything from dogs to children to actual human beings. At his side and in his way are two of the finest actors to ever ugly up a screen: Henry “Stoneface” Silva and sandpaper-throated wildman Michael Gazzo as the chrome-domed goombah who hypocritically mocks Forster’s modest hair loss. A brilliant animal holocaust, penned by future auteur John Sayles when he still knew how to party, ALLIGATOR makes all other mutant sewer reptiles look like pathetic sissies. “Turtle power,” my ass.
