The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
Director: W. D. Richter
Cast: Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin
Duration: 103 mins
Late Fridays continues with this bonafide (and very daft) cult classic.
Peter Weller (three years before suiting up as Robocop) stars as Dr. Buckaroo Banzai – a physicist, neurosurgeon, test pilot and guitarist - who makes a scientific breakthrough allowing him to travel through solid matter using the 8th dimension.
When he finds that evil interdimensional aliens from Planet 10 are after his device, Buckaroo must save the world - luckily he can call upon his band, the Hong Kong Cavaliers (who double as a crime fighting team) to assist him in defeating them.
The stacked cast includes Ellen Barkin, John Lithgow, and Jeff Goldblum…in chaps.
Brilliantly bizarre and deadpan, strap in for a ride to a completely different world!
Please note Late Night Friday screenings have no ads or trailers and will start promptly at 10pm.
