This September we’re marking the thirtieth anniversary of ROBOCOP, Paul Verhoeven’s wild cybernetic vision of future of law enforcement, with a once-in-a-lifetime livestream event broadcast from the real OCP Headquarters shooting location, aka City Hall in Dallas, TX.
Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop was first released in theaters on July 17th, 1987. It opened #1 at the box office, earning $8 million its first weekend. The special one-time event will take place on September 10th, 2017 this fall. Verhoeven's RoboCop stars Peter Weller as Officer Alex J. Murphy, who is turned into the part-man, part-machine "RoboCop" after being killed. Set in crime-ridden Detroit, the film features extreme violence and an emotional plot about this robot man who still has feelings, despite the company that created it (OCP) claiming it is the perfect emotionless machine. All the cinemas participating around the country will have "special props included with the ticket so you can interact with the film". Don't miss this screening.
