As part of its Film Comment Selects series that runs February 20-March 5, New York City’s Film Society of Lincoln Center is paying tribute to ’80s horror/action/exploitation specialists Cannon Films, and we’ve got tickets for a bunch of those shows to give away!
We’re offering a pair of tickets to each to the following screenings, all showing at the Walter Reade Theater, 165 West 65th Street:
• ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS, a documentary on the company and its many insane productions by Mark Hartley, creator of NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD: Friday, February 20 at 8:30 p.m.
• NINJA III: THE DOMINATION, Sam Firstenberg’s utterly bonkers entry in the Sho Kosugi martial-arts series, incoporating supernatural possession, aerobics, the erotic use of V-8 juice and more: Friday, February 20 at 10:45 p.m.
• THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN, Boaz Davidson’s hit teen sex comedy starring the luminous Diane Franklin: Saturday, February 21 at 1 p.m.
• 10 TO MIDNIGHT (pictured above), J. Lee Thompson’s perverse thriller with Charles Bronson pursuing a maniac who murders women in the nude: Saturday, February 21 at 3 p.m.
