Highlander (1986, 1h 56 m, R), in English with French subtitles
A cult classic action-fantasy film about Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert), an immortal 16th-century swordsman from the Scottish Highlands. When the mystical Russell Nash — really MacLeod — kills a man in a swordfight in a New York City parking lot, he leaves behind a sliver from an ancient weapon. Forensics specialist Brenda Wyatt (Roxanne Hart) recovers evidence of the mysterious weapon and, with her partner Lt. Frank Moran (Alan North), lands in the middle of a dangerous, ancient feud between powerful immortals. Scottish actor Sean Connery plays MacLeod’s mentor, Ramìrez.
Hook – Thursday, August 8, 8:30 p.m.
