Escapism Film Festival 2010

Speaking of The Carolina Theatre and Retrofantasma, also coming up there at the end of the month is their annual Escapism Film Festival. Once again it's another amazing lineup with titles including: Star Trek 2, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, RoboCop, The Muppet Movie, Enemy Mine, The Last Starfighter, Legend, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Legend of Billie Jean, and The Secret of NIMH. That's an outstanding list of classic films, but the MOST interesting highlight of all is that they are screening Buck Rogers in the 25th Century in 35mm! It of course will include the awesome "James Bond" opening credits that didn't appear in the television version, which is worth the price of admission alone. Many folks forget that Buck was released theatrically just like Battlestar Galactica. Having seen it at the drive-in back in the late 70's I can tell you it's fantastic seeing it on the big screen!
