RARE SCREENING OF 'NO HOLDS BARRED' IN NEW YORK CITY

The Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn, NY will be hosting a rare 35 MM screening of the first-ever WWE film production, 1989's No Holds Barred starring Hulk Hogan as Rip and Tiny Lister as Zeus on Wednesday 10/2 at 9:30 PM.

The theater notes, "Hulk Hogan's legendary move from star of the ring to star of the silver screen is a muscle filled spectacle full of body slams, choke holds, and one-liners that really stick to the ribs. Hogan has a certain sunburnt charisma as "Rip Thomas," a barely transposed analog for himself, a wrestler plagued by corporate stooges who have no respect for the sport and only want to exploit his likeness for profits. After shoving a check down one such stooge's throat, they get the message and refocus their attention on the gigantic Zeus ("Tiny" Lister, FRIDAY). After much ado, including a bizarre romantic subplot that has nods to Capra's IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT, the movie leads up to what we've all been waiting for: NO RULES WRASSLIN'!"

The film features appearances by Stan Hansen, Jos LeDuc, Bill Eadie, Jesse Ventura, Gene Okerlund, Howard Finkel and more.
