In the future, crime is out of control and New York City's Manhattan is a maximum security prison. Grabbing a bargaining chip right out of the air, convicts bring down the President's plane in bad old Gotham. Gruff Snake Plissken, a one-eyed lone warrior new to prison life, is coerced into bringing the President, and his cargo, out of this land of undesirables.
The Critics Classics presents Escape from New York at the Elk Grove Theatre on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 PM. Admission $5.
The Critics Classics will be in conjunction with the Chicago Film Critics Association. There will be an introduction to the film and a short Q&A after.
