Back to the 80s

Big Trouble in Little China 15

Wed 6 Jul & Fri 29 Jul | All tickets £3 (+50p admin fee)




Kurt Russell (Escape from New York) plays Jack Burton, a goofily confident trucker who unexpectedly ends up in a supernatural battle between good and evil.


John Carpenter’s cult classic is a perfect genre-busting mash-up of comedy and 80s action – with martial arts, fantasy tropes and even romance thrown in for good measure – though the knowing performances elevate Big Trouble in Little China from B-movie fodder.


Screening as part of our '80s season, coinciding with the brilliant I Grew Up 80s exhibition taking place at Leicester Museum & Art Gallery until the end of August.

Dir: John Carpenter

Cast: Kurt Russell, Victor Wong, James Hong

USA 1985, 100mins
