Sci-Fi at Sunset Flash Gordon Screening

September 17, 2018

Lightbox Film Center and the University City Science Center present a free outdoor screening of Flash Gordon on Innovation Plaza

 

This campy, colorful feature film adaptation of the comic book Flash Gordon features Ingmar Bergman regular Max Von Sydow as Ming the Merciless alongside a cast that includes Timothy Dalton, Brian Blessed and Topol. When Ming decides to entertain himself by destroying planet Earth, Flash, Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov confront him in a battle that ultimately unites all of Ming’s enemies. Flash Gordon remains a thrilling, epic sci-fi tale that never takes itself too seriously. Bonus: a soundtrack by the rock group Queen.

 

Food available for purchase from Winky's. Serving footlong all beef hotdogs, vegan hotdogs, Philly hot sausages, and warm pita and hummus.
