Big Trouble in Little China
Sun Aug 18: 7.30pm

John Carpenter
1h 39m
Series - Erin O. Kays Fog City Cinema

Kurt Russell stars as Jack Burton, a big-talking, wisecracking truck driver suddenly hurled into a wild adventure. At the root of it is Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2,000-year-old evil magician who rules an empire of spirits beneath San Franciscos Chinatown. Doomed to a fleshless existence, he can only be saved by a green-eyed Asian beauty (go figure!). When the fiancée (Suzee Pai) of Jacks friend (Dennis Dun) is kidnapped by Lo Pans minions, Jack goes to the rescue. He finds himself dodging demons, grappling with goblins and facing baffling terrors like the Room of the Upside-Down Hell as he battles his way through the labyrinth of Lo Pans dark domain.

Curator's statement:
I first saw this electrifying 80s classic when I was nine years old and it blew my tiny, child brain. The pure adrenaline rush of Big Trouble created a burning desire within my little kid heart to seek out this City of Wonders and my own crazy adventures. My adventures usually involve less run-ins with ancient curses and sewer monsters, but nevertheless, this movie inspired me to traverse the realms of imagination, and I am forever grateful to my father for not turning it off and making me go to bed.
