Have you ever been in a cockpit before? Do you like movies about gladiators? Have you ever been in a Turkish prison? If your answer to any of these questions is "wait, what?" then you're in for a rare treat--the 1980 comedy classic Airplane! on the big screen. The spoof that launched a thousand imitators, not to mention a brilliant second career for Leslie Nielsen as a comic actor, lands at the Eureka Theater. David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker pull out all the stops in this relentless laugh-fest that sends-up every airplane disaster film from ZERO HOUR to AIRPORT. “Serious” actors Robert Stack, Leslie Nielsen, Llloyd Bridges, and Peter Graves, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (!), round out the game cast, and watch for cameos by the likes of “The Beaver’s” mom, Barbara Billingsley, and Ethel Merman. Admission is $5.00 all ages. Doors open at 7:00 PM, showtime at 7:30 PM.
1980 | 88 min. | Rated PG
