The 1987 action flick Predator has a lot going for it, but it’s definitely the best of the trio of films (including 1987's The Running Man and 1997's Batman & Robin) featuring the then-future state governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse “The Body” Ventura. Those beefy political-office-bound dudes lead a team on a hunt Saturday, November 23.
A cunning and well-equipped member of an alien warrior race gets dumped to the jungles of Central America. It doesn’t really matter why exactly because Arnie's Dutch, an elite military team leader with a penchant for delivering ridiculous lines with a straight face, leads a team of commandos who’ll face off with the reptilian humanoid for maximum moviegoer enjoyment.
Predator screens at 9:30 p.m. at Pollock Tempe Cinemas, 1825 East Elliot Road. Tickets range from $11 general admission seats to a $40 VIP package. More info is available at www.cultclassicsaz.com.
