Bend Surgery Center presents
2017-2018 Live At The Tower season
Tickets: Reserved Seating $17 (includes Historic Theatre Preservation Fee)
The year is 2017. The economy has collapsed. America has sealed its borders and controls all communication—TV, movies, art, and books. "The Running Man," a public execution gauntlet staged as a reality gameshow, is #1, and its host (Richard Dawson) is the most popular personality in the U.S. But when a wrongly convicted L.A. cop (Arnold Schwarzenegger) runs the hunt, he promises “I’ll be back!”
Tower member Thomas del Ruth, the film’s cinematographer, shares his memories and observations on the 30th anniversary of this stylish—and prophetic—action movie.
“Welcome to America when the best men don't run for president; they run for their lives.”
