Nerd Along Double Feature! Runaway and The Other Guys

December 14, 2018 5:30pm - 9:30pm

Join us for a screening of Runaway and The Other Guys!

We got to talking and we decided it was super necessary to see Tom Selleck fight robot spiders 🕷 and then watch Michael Keaton quote TLC songs. It should be fun!

All non-crafters are welcome and encouraged to attend but if you happen to knit, crochet, sew, spin, macrame, or craft in general, make sure to bring it along so you can work on your project while we watch!

You are welcome to bring snacks, refreshments, and food to munch on. Some of my chairs are folding chairs so you can also bring pillows or blankets for comfort.

Please RSVP. I have a limited number of chairs but can get more if necessary. If you can't make it please change your RSVP.

Runaway Description:

In this advanced society, most homes have robots that perform everyday menial duties. Every so often, one malfunctions, and Sgt. Jack Ramsay (Tom Selleck), an expert in rogue machines, must deal with it. When he and his new partner, Karen Thompson (Cynthia Rhodes), investigate a robot-involved homicide, they discover strange computer chips. Rather than a malfunction, someone is programming the robots to kill. The police must find whoever is behind the murder before more harm is done.

Release date: December 14, 1984 (USA)

The Other Guys Description:

Unlike their heroic counterparts on the force, desk-bound NYPD detectives Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) garner no headlines as they work day to day. Gamble relishes his job as a paper pusher, but Hoitz is itching to get back on the street and make a name for himself. When a seemingly minor case turns out to be a big deal, the two cops get the opportunity to finally prove to their comrades that they have the right stuff.
