It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it. Our friends at Cinematic Void are back, baby! And this time they’re presenting a brand new 4K restoration of Rowdy Herrington’s 1989 macho classic, Road House — starring the inimitable Patrick Swayze.
The Double Deuce is the meanest, loudest and rowdiest bar south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and Dalton (Swayze) has been hired to clean it up. He might not look like much, but the Ph.D.-educated bouncer proves he’s more than capable — busting the heads of troublemakers and turning the roadhouse into a jumping hotspot. But Dalton’s romance with the gorgeous Dr. Clay (Kelly Lynch) puts him on the bad side of cutthroat local big shot Brad Wesley (Ben Gazzara).
One of Swayze’s defining lead roles, Road House is a gloriously sweaty and explosive ode to the raw art and power of combat.
Road House screens Thursday, July 28th.
