Special 25th anniversary screening with a brand new 35mm print! In the fall of 1992, a 29 year-old video store clerk named Quentin Tarantino burst onto the indie film scene with a debut that set new standards for the crime thriller. Inspired by classics such as The Killing, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, and Kansas City Confidential, Reservoir Dogs focuses on the aftermath of a botched jewelry store robbery. Holed up in an abandoned warehouse, the surviving robbers (including Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and a scene-stealing Steve Buscemi) and the heist planners (Chris Penn and Lawrence Tierney) try to figure out what went wrong – and who’s the rat.
