Week 3 of Post Apocalyptic Road Movie Nights. This one is of course the classic that made “Snake” Plissken a household name…well at least in our dysfunctional house.
Again we’ll be giving away drinks for correct answers to host Matthew Glasson’s trivia questions before the movie. Wacky trailers will precede the feature like pre-coital shenanigans – and in case you missed Matt belting out the ‘Love Boat’ to set the.. um mood…this week he’s promising anything could happen.
“In 1988, the crime rate in the United States rises four hundred percent. The once great city of New York becomes the one maximum security prison for the entire country. A fifty-foot containment wall is erected along the New Jersey shoreline, across the Harlem River, and down along the Brooklyn shoreline. It completely surrounds Manhattan Island. All bridges and waterways are mined. The United States Police Force, like an army, is encamped around the island. There are no guards inside the prison, only prisoners and the worlds they have made. The rules are simple: once you go in, you don’t come out.”
