TOTAL RECALL – 4K Restoration: Friday Night Freakouts
April 21 @ 11:00 pm
“GET READY FOR A SURPRISE!” Paul Verhoeven’s TOTAL RECALL has been given the 4K digital restoration treatment by Rialto Pictures – and we’re bringing it to you April 21!
Douglas Quaid seems to have it pretty good in 2084 A.D. A heavily muscled construction worker, he boasts a beautiful wife, good friends, and a technologically advanced home featuring video phones and even video walls. But he is haunted by dreams of a mysterious brunette woman, and the red wastelands of Mars. When Quaid hears of Rekall, a unique travel agency that implants the memory of an adventure into its customers’ minds, he jumps at the chance to get the chance to live out his Martian fantasies – but when something goes terribly wrong, Quaid finds himself at the center of a dangerous conspiracy. Now hunted by henchmen and seemingly under the watchful eye of an alternative version of himself, he must travel to Mars and get to the bottom of the increasingly strange circumstances he is finding himself in.
An adaptation of short story “”We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick, Total Recall is a rollercoaster ride of nonstop action, remarkable special effects, and in the visionary hands of Verhoeven, graphic violence, fantastic sets, sharp political satire, and more than a few surprise twists.
