Fa-La-La Film Fest at: Die Hard at Gorton Community Center

“You really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?” “Yipee-ki-yay” —Die Hard‘s many imitators (and sequels) have never come close to matching the taut thrills of the definitive holiday action classic. A must see on the big screen!

Fa-La-La Film Fest Presents:
It’s Christmas time in L.A., and there’s an employee party in progress on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Corporation building. The revelry comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber, who plan to steal the 600 million dollars locked in Nakatomi’s high-tech safe. In truth, Gruber and his henchmen are only pretending to be politically motivated to throw the authorities off track; also in truth, Gruber has no intention of allowing anyone to get out of the building alive. Meanwhile, New York cop John McClane has come to L.A. to visit his estranged wife, Holly, who happens to be one of the hostages. Disregarding the orders of the authorities surrounding the building, McClane, who fears nothing (except heights), takes on the villains, armed with one handgun and plenty of chutzpah. Until Die Hard came along, Bruce Willis was merely that wisecracking guy on Moonlighting. After the film’s profits started rolling in, Willis found himself one of the highest-paid and most sought-after leading men in Hollywood.

Die Hard is also screening at 7:00pm.

Directed by John McTiernan. Starring Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Reginald VelJohnson and Bonnie Bedelia.
