ABANDON NORMAL DEVICES PRESENTS EMPIRE DRIVE IN
MAD MAX II
Empire Drive-In is a large-scale, post-apocalyptic drive-in movie theatre made from wrecked cars and a 40-foot screen made of salvaged wood. Created by Brooklyn artists Todd Chandler and Jeff Stark in collaboration with a dozen other artists and craftspeople, it is symbolic of the once thriving drive-in industry in the United States.
Also known as The Road Warrior, the second part of George Miller’s post-apocalyptic trilogy has become a turbo-charged cult myth. In the post apocalyptic Australian wasteland, cyncial drifter Max (Mel Gibson) rediscovers a sliver of his shattered humanity, when he helps an embattled colony of pioneers fight off bandits who are after that most precious of commodities: ‘guzzline’. With its final stirring images, Road Warrior transcends its genre (whatever that may be: science fiction? Road movie? Western?) to become something timeless.
Estimated feature start time 22.15.
