The Terminator 40th Anniversary

Directed by

Thu 7/25: 7:30p







Special 40th anniversary presented with Art House Theater Day! Featuring an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Director James Cameron and Producer Gale Anne Hurd on the film's indie roots and the critical importance of art house theaters today. Tickets $11 members, $13 non-members.

This conversation will play following the film and will be moderated by Amanda Salazar, Director of Programming at Vidiots, a non-profit video store and entertainment events hub for film lovers in the Los Angeles area. Disguised as a human, a cyborg assassin known as a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Sent to protect Sarah is Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), who divulges the coming of Skynet, an artificial intelligence system that will spark a nuclear holocaust. Sarah is targeted because Skynet knows that her unborn son will lead the fight against them. With the virtually unstoppable Terminator in hot pursuit, she and Kyle attempt to escape.

Art House Theater Day is an annual program that brings audiences together to celebrate all that art house theaters – and independent film – contribute to our cultural landscape: ambitious and innovative art that provokes, challenges, entertains, and inspires. 2024 marks the fifth Art House Theater Day, which launched in 2016 in more than 150 cinemas across the country. In addition to programs like Art House Theater Day, AHC offers networking opportunities, resources, and best practices to independent exhibitors at large.
