This Halloween, The Loft Movie Theatre and Straight to Video are proud to present a 40th Anniversary 4K screening of John Carpenter’s 1982 horror sci-fi classic, The Thing. 

When an isolated Antarctic research station is invaded by an alien entity which can take on the form of any living creature, paranoia turns into terror as the twelve-man team struggle to discover which of them is human, and which have been infected by The Thing!

With an atmosphere thick with tension, some of the most surreal and shocking practical visual effects ever created for the cinema screen, and a wonderfully effective score by Ennio Morricone, The Thing is an unprecedented apocalyptic science fiction horror film not to be missed on the big screen.

LETHAL WEAPON (1987) AT THE SAVOY

When Sergeant Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) becomes reckless and suicidal after the death of his wife, his captain partners him up with dependable Homicide Sergeant Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), who is days away from his retirement. At first the pair clash, but when the chips are down and lives are at stake, they begin to form an unlikely bond. 

Funny, emotional, and with a dark undertone, it’s easy to see why this well-loved buddy cop movie spawned a franchise of sequels, a TV series, and a tonne of copycat films and spoofs. 

With genuine chemistry from Gibson and Glover, some signature Christmas spirit from writer Shane Black, and more ‘80s fun than you can shake your mullet at, Lethal Weapon is the action-packed festive feature not to be missed on the big screen this December!
