ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE TO CELEBRATE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF RODDY PIPER'S 'THEY LIVE' NEXT MONTH

By Mike Johnson on 2018-07-12 08:35:00

The Alamo Drafthouse movie theater chain is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the iconic Roddy Piper film They Live with a series of screenings around the country as well as an exclusive t-shirt being sold at the screenings.   When released in November 1988, the John Carpenter film was the top film at the box office, making $13,008,928 over the course of its four week run in theaters.

In the film, Piper portrays John Nada, a homeless man who uncovers an alien plot to subvert humanity with subliminal messages.  Piper's fight scene with Keith David is one of the most celebrated in cinema history, to the point that it was once recreated shot by shot in an epsiode of South Park.

The They Live screenings will take place on Monday 8/13 and Tuesday 8/14.
