DEATH WISH 3 35mm d. Michael Winner, 1985 + Q&A with Alex Winter (02 APR 21:15) / Part of ALEX WINTER: LIVE ON STAGE at The Prince Charles:

“When architect-turned-vigilante Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) returns to New York City, he discovers that one of his friends has been murdered by gang members. After the cops bring Paul in for questioning, he receives a tempting offer from the police chief (Ed Lauter): Paul can have free rein to eliminate the gangsters, as long as the police get the credit. Paul agrees and goes to war against Manny Fraker (Gavan O’Herlihy) and his vicious gang of thugs.” (The PCC)

RADIANT CIRCUS is delighted to announce the next screening supported by #ReviveTheDark, our audience-backed campaign for distinctive/DIY cinema! Sonic Cinema presents AUSTRIAN SYNAESTHETIC CINEMA at Cafe OTO (06 MAY 20:00).
