John Carpenter's 'The Thing'

John Carpenter's 'The Thing'

8:45pm - Wednesday, Jan 25, 2023

In celebration of John Carpenter's 1976 gritty action thriller ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 getting the 4K Restoration treatment, we thought we'd also give it the double bill treatment with another Carpenter classic that his fans can't get enough of - THE THING!

See one, or see 'em both for one sweet price!

John Carpenter's remake of Howard Hawke's 1951 classic THE THING is a bleak, tense and frightening sci-fi thriller that delivers some truly memorable practical and makeup effects, in addition to Kurt Russell's truly memorable performance. THE THING is an ice-cold white-knuckle chiller about about scientists in the Antarctic who are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. 

"THE THING is a peerless masterpiece of relentless suspense, retina-wrecking visual excess and outright, nihilistic terror." (Empire Magazine)

"THE THING is one of [Carpenter's] greatest moments, creating a terrifying atmosphere of claustrophobia, suspense and paranoia. And Kurt Russell is as good as he's ever been, wearing one of the best beards in movie history." (Total Film)
