Escape From New York

"Boasting one of the most iconic characters ever in Plissken, and an effective sci-fi set-up, this is entertainment of the highest order." - Empire

If you thought 2020 was bad... get a load of 1997! Escape from New York comes to the Playhouse! 

When the President crash lands on the island of Manhattan, now a maximum security prison, Snake Plissken is sent in to rescue him...or die trying. John Carpenter’s crafts a detailed, lived-in post-apocalyptic world, and inhabits it with memorable characters played by previous collaborator’s (THE FOG’s Adrienne Barbeau, HALLOWEEN’s Donald Pleasence), genre heavyweights (THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY’s Lee Van Cleef, SHAFT’s Isaac Hayes), and reinvents former Disney child star Kurt Russell as one of the ‘80s most badass action heroes. The result is a sci-fi action thriller where the rules are simple: Once you go in, you don’t come out.
