Dir. Joel Schumacher - 1993 - 112m - A BALLS OUT ENTERTAINMENT SPECIAL! - No matinees

The adventures of an ordinary man at war with the everyday world.

Freeways are clogged. Terror stalks our cities. At shops and restaurants, the customer is seldom right. Pressures of big-city life can anger anyone. But Bill Foster is more than angry. He’s out to get even. Foster abandons his gridlocked car license plate D-FENS on the hottest day of the year and walks straight into an urban nightmare both absurdly funny and shatteringly violent. Academy Award winner Michael Douglas is Foster, an ordinary guy at war with the frustrations of daily life. Fellow Oscar winner Robert Duvall is the savvy cop obsessed with stopping Fosters citywide rampage. This spellbinding thriller is their story, asking “Are we falling apart?”

Considered a controversial cult classic soon after its release in 1993, Falling Down (starring Michael Douglas, Robert Duvall, and Barbara Hershey) was a cultural touchstone featured on the cover of Newsweek. Kirk Douglas called Falling Down his son Michael’s best work.

The film will be introduced by film critic, author, and filmmaker Benjamin Radford. Falling Down memorabilia will also be on display.

“It turns one man's slide toward madness into a wickedly mischievous, entertaining suspense thriller.” - Caryn James, New York Times

“Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and certainly unnerving.” - Time Out

“What makes this an innovative film is Joel Schumacher's bold eschewing of the good-guy-verses-bad-guy Hollywood convention.” - Film4
