RoboCop, a vision that sadly has become truer than anyone could have imagined. Originally seen as a critique of Reagan-era policies and a parody of over-the-top violent buddy-cop films by being an over-the-top violent buddy-cop film itself, RoboCop has much to say to contemporary audiences. It will show at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 10, at the Alamo Drafthouse at 7301 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton, and plenty will no doubt be discussed in a post-screening live-streamed Q&A with star Peter Weller, broadcast from the “real” OCP Headquarters (in reality, Dallas City Hall). Tickets are $12.30 and will include a bag of props; find out more at drafthouse.com/littleton.
Militarization of the police. The decaying city of Detroit. Streets overrun with violence. Headlines ripped from today? No, it’s the dystopian future depicted in the 1987 action sci-fi flick
