Synopsis: Double Feature: MAN ON FIRE, 2004, 20th Century Fox, 146 min. Dir. Tony Scott. Denzel Washington stars as Creasy, an ex-CIA op brought to Mexico City to bodyguard his friend’s daughter, 9-year-old Pita Ramos (Dakota Fanning). When Pita is abducted, Creasy swears vengeance on the kidnappers, and damn near burns down Mexico City to reveal the truth about her disappearance.
CRIMSON TIDE, 1995, Buena Vista, 116 min. Dir. Tony Scott. When rebels overrun a Russian ICBM missile site, a U.S. nuclear sub captained by Gene Hackman is dispatched to deal with the problem. A command to launch their nuclear warhead is radioed to the sub, but the follow-up message is interrupted when they’re attacked, thus setting in motion a ferocious test of wills between hawkish Hackman and more circumspect second-in-command Denzel Washington.
Evening hosted by director Joe Carnahan, with other special guests TBA.
