TANK GIRL – Special Screening
Friday, Jan 26, 10pm at Savor Cinema Fort Lauderdale
Lock up your sons cause The Film Junkies and Savor Cinema are bringing TANK GIRL back to the big screen.
Based on Alan Martin’s British comic series, TANK GIRL was released in 1995 and has since developed a cult following. Directed by Rachel Talalay (FREDDY’S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE), this is a wildly entertaining post-apocalyptic trip that delivers a stand-out performance by Lori Petty, an unrecognizable Ice-T and features an incredible soundtrack assembled by Courtney Love.
Make sure to join us on Friday, January 26th for a special screening of the film that CULT CINEMA calls a “‘real’ feminist cult film”.
Tank Girl (Rebecca) and her friends are the only remaining citizens living in the wasteland that is Earth, where all the remaining water is controlled by Water and Power, the mega corporation/government that runs the territory. While incarcerated at W + P, Tank Girl and her new friend Jet Girl break out and steal… a tank and a jet. After meeting some mutant kangaroo/humans, and rescuing her little girl (adopted by her friends), the kangaroos and the girls kick Water and Powers’ butt.
