The Late Show: TRUE ROMANCE (35mm)
July 13 @ 10:00 pm - July 14 @ 12:00 am$9
Presented in 35mm!
Part of our epic two-month retrospective called “Once Upon A Time…” dedicated to the work of Quentin Tarantino! Including his directing, writing AND producing credits.
Stealing, Cheating, Killing. Who said romance is dead?
“Would you like to go get some pie with me?” It’s the line that every guy used after 1993. If a girl ever said “yes” to a Sonny Chiba triple feature followed by some good conversation and a slice of pie, you’d be a damned fool not to marry her right then and there. Alabama is a prostitute sent by Clarence’s boss to give him a good time on his birthday.
She’s a clumsy sort, and the last thing she ever expected on her first week on the job was to fall in love. Sure, you could be the jaded type who scoffs at love at first sight, or you could sit down and embrace the unfiltered passion roller coaster ride that is TRUE ROMANCE. “Nine-camera” Tony Scott directs from a (pre-PULP FICTION) Quentin Tarantino script to create one of the most indelible ’90s masterpieces.
It’s got the voice of a generation as Christian Slater leads a ’90s all-star cast including Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Bronson Pinchot, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, and Samuel L. Jackson.
“Three words went through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you’re so cool, you’re so cool, you’re so cool.” (Greg MacLennan)
