A thrilling landmark film that jolts along at a breakneck pace, Escape From New York leaped to cult status with high-octane action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and a mind-blowing vision of a lone warrior (Kurt Russell) battling his way out of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan! Hailed as “stylish and scary” (Los Angeles Times), “dark and dangerous” (Newsweek) and “gloriously…fun” (Tyler Morning Telegraph), this fast-paced and furiously entertaining thriller grabs you by the throat and won’t let go! In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted to a walled prison where brutal prisoners roam. But when the U.S. President (Donald Pleasence) crash-lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw and former Special Forces war hero Snake Plissken (Russell). But time is short: in 24 hours, an explosive device implanted in his neck will end Snake’s mission and his life unless he succeeds!

The Guild Cinema is located at 3405 Central Avenue NE, in the Nob Hill area.
