This summer, FilmBar and ASU's Center for Science and the Imagination are going back to the future. Admission includes a complimentary small popcorn and $1 off your first drink!
This second installment of The History of the Future film series rounds up another set of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking
films from decades past. With introductions and comments from scholars and experts, we'll examine stories about the future from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and think about how accurate those visions turned out to be.
With innocent victims caught in the crossfire in Los Angeles' intensifying war on crime, both cop John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) and violent thug Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) are sentenced to a state of frozen incarceration known as "CryoPrison." When Spartan is finally thawed 36 years later, it's 2032, and Los Angeles is now a pacifist utopia called San Angeles. But with Phoenix again on the loose, Spartan must team up with future cop Lenina (Sandra Bullock) to apprehend the killer.
