70 mm: TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY

TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, 1991

In line with this month’s Magical History Tour, we are showing James Cameron’s TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (USA 1991) as part of our 70-mm series. The sequel to the 1984 “The Terminator” featured revolutionary special effects that had never before been seen. In the second film, 10 years have passed when Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) is once again confronted with a danger from the future. A new almost indestructible Terminator, the liquid metal, shapeshifting T-1000, comes to earth to eliminate Connor’s 10-year-old son John before he can become the leader of the human resistance against the machines’ reign of terror. Rebels from the future send Sarah an unexpected ally to protect John and stand in T-1000’s way: A re-programmed older generation T-800 Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger). (hjf) (11.6.)
