About

Celebrate the 50th-anniversary of George Roy Hill’s classic sci-fi film at the Colonial. 

Only a few brave souls have attempted to translate the full-length novels of Kurt Vonnegut to the screen, and even fewer have managed to pull it off successfully. At the top of that select company stands Slaughterhouse-Five, a surprisingly effective translation of his 1969 novel (and one immediately notorious for the difficulty of adapting it).” – Mondo-Digital

FILM SYNOPSIS

From his home in Ilium, N.Y., optometrist Billy Pilgrim (Michael Sacks) narrates the tale of how he came to be “unstuck in time”. Kidnapped by aliens and living in comfort with his assigned mate, B-movie starlet Montana Wildhack (Valerie Perrine), Billy experiences the events of his life in random order, flitting between his past as an American prisoner of war in World War II, to his humdrum middle-class life in the present-day, to his future as a zoo curiosity on the planet Tralfamadore.
