20th Anniversary Screening. It is hard to believe movie-going audiences were given the double gift of Face/Off and Con Air all within a week’s time in the summer of 1997. Hot off the heels of The Rock and an Oscar®-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas, Cage delivered a back-to-back affirmation of his leading star status with these two summer blockbusters. We hope you enjoy this anniversary double feature of Nic Cage at his action-star peak.


FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) is obsessed with bringing to justice the elusive terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) and Troy’s band of villainous miscreants—who Archer blames of the death of his son, Michael. After a successful raid, resulting in Troy’s bloody capture, FBI scientists hatch a wild plan to immerse Agent Archer deep into the underworld to subvert and destroy Troy’s criminal empire for good. John Woo directs this high-voltage action thriller, which relies considerably on an audience’s ability to suspend its disbelief and to possess more than a passing affinity for doves. Also starring Joan Allen, Alessandro Nivola, and Gina Gershon (HD Presentation).
