Trailer of the Day: REPO MAN

Repo Man

“Of all the low-budget films to come out of the 1980s, this dark cult comedy about urban sprawl and alien paranoia is one of the best ones. Emilio Estevez stars in one of his earliest roles as Otto Parts, your modern apocalyptic teen up to his armpits in drugs, sex, and parental neglect. He soon finds a way out through Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), an ace repo man who gives him a job and teaches him the ways of the car-repossessing trade. The two wander through the guts of LA in search of a ’64 Chevy Malibu, priced at $50,000, and run into a cast of bizarre street characters: feds, girls in distress, a lobotomized nuclear physicist, and really, really dumb criminals. Cox, who wrote and directed the film, creates a strange but hilarious view of our culture, a brilliant satire on modern society…. Deserves the same respect and attention given to THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and THIS IS SPINAL TAP, two films that define the cult category.”—Austin Chronicle. (92 mins.)

SINGLE OR DOUBLE FEATURE (Double feature with HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION)

Double features cost an additional $3 to stay for both films. To purchase an advanced ticket for the double feature, be sure to select the DOUBLE FEATURE rather than the single ticket.
