WIN Tickets to IN THE HOUSE Double Feature of THE FLY & GATTACA!
This Friday, two heavyweights of sci-fi cinema spanning two decades collide at IN THE HOUSE for a genetically engineered double of THE FLY & GATTACA.
THE FLY (1986)
David Cronenberg’s incredible remake of the 1958 cult classic follows a young scientist who transforms himself into a fly through an experiment gone horribly wrong. Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), a brilliant but eccentric scientist attempts to woo investigative journalist Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) by offering her a scoop on his latest research in the field of matter transportation, which against all the expectations of the scientific establishment have proved successful. Up to a point, Brundle thinks he has ironed out the last problem when he successfully transports a living creature, but when he attempts to teleport himself a fly enters one of the transmission booths, and Brundle finds he is a changed man.
Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Alan Arkin and Jude Law star in this engrossing sci-fi thriller about an all-too-human man who dares to defy a system obsessed with genetic perfection. Vincent (Ethan Hawke) is an ‘In-Valid’ who assumes the identity of a member of the genetic elite to pursue his goal of traveling into space with the Gattaca Aerospace Corporation. However, a week before his mission, a murder marks Vincent as a suspect. With a relentless investigator in pursuit and the colleague he has fallen in love with beginning to suspect his deception, Vincent’s dreams steadily unravel.
