Run Lola Run (25th Anniversary 4K Restoration

8:30pm - Saturday, Jun 22, 2024

German filmmaker Tom Tykwer's RUN LOLA RUN - remastered in 4K for it 25th Anniversary - was one of the standout, breakout international hits of the 90s, thanks to its visually and conceptually impressive asethetic and one of the most heart-pounding soundtracks of that decade. The story follows a two-bit Berlin criminal Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who is meant to delivers some smuggled loot for his boss, Ronnie (Heino Ferch), but accidentally leaves the 100,000 mark payment in a subway car. Given 20 minutes to come up with the money, he calls his girlfriend, Lola (Franka Potente), who sprints through the streets of the city to try to beg the money out of her bank manager father (Herbert Knaup) and get to Manni before he does something desperate.

"More fun than a barrel of Jean-Paul Sartre, pic's energy riffs on an engaging love story and really human performances while offering a series of what-ifs and a blood-stirring soundtrack." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"A madly spinning top of a movie." (Entertainment Weekly)

"Cleverly juggling the elements and encounters of a simple thriller scenario by using multiple viewpoints and a domino effect to create different destinies..." (Variety)

"Not only does Lola run, she takes this hyperkinetic pop culture firecracker of a film with her." (LA Times)
