Film: They Live

July
28
Saturday 28 July
8pm, £3

Ante present John Carpenter's forgotten 80s classic "They Live".
Nada (Spanish for 'nothing') is a homeless worker in Los Angeles who stumbles across a box of sun glasses. The glasses reveal a totalitarianism beneath society's glossy veneer, and a population passively following orders to consume and obey.
A camp sci-fi B-Move, clever retelling of Plato's allegorical tale 'The Cave' or a compelling critique of the modern age? You decide.

A fantastically subversive film, a nifty little confection pitting us vs them, the haves vs the have-nots.
Variety

Behold the message as articulated by John Carpenter's sublime sci-fi opus: "I'm giving you a choice: Either put on these glasses, or start eating that trashcan."

Our bar is open.
