Description

Celebrating the anniversaries of some of the greatest genre classics of the 80s and 90s, Retro Recall is a visual spectacle of epic proportions. Return to a time when Christian Bale was the chainsaw-wielding, business-card slinging scourge of Manhattan. Caught during the height of American Yuppieism in the late '80s, Patrick Bateman finds himself surrounded by friends that he hates and a culture he can’t stand. Can anyone blame him for allowing his nightly bloodlust to overflow into the day? It simply doesn't get any better than Bateman lecturing a soon-to-be victim on the cultural undertones found within Huey Lewis and The News’ “Hip to be Square,” all while wearing a raincoat and holding an incredibly shiny axe. So slick back your hair, put on your finest Valentino suit and join us for a bloody fun night of murder, mayhem, and fragile masculinity. Oh, and don’t forget to return those videotapes on the way to the theatre!
