introduced by Ethan Hawke
Sunday, January 24
(1985, Joe Dante) Science-minded kids Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix (in their film debuts) build a spacecraft inspired by mysterious dreams that – to their surprise – actually works. But when they manage to break orbit, they must escape a shifty government agency and – possibly – real extra-terrestrials. 35mm. Approx, 109 mins.
“It looks terrific, moves along at a gallop, and is marvelously good-natured.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
