FLASH GORDON (1980)

January 27th • 6:00

Long ago a young George Lucas wanted to make a film version of the 1930s adventure serial “Flash Gordon.” When he was turned down, he transformed that concept into the colossally successful franchise Star Wars. A few years later, Universal decided to run with that idea, and what we get is 1980’s Flash Gordon! This knowingly campy sci-fi action movie turns 40 this year and we are thrilled to have it grace our screen! Whether you grew up with it, or only know if from Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, you’re sure to enjoy this uber-masculine space adventure featuring a gloriously over-the-top score by Queen!
