Kicking off with James Cameron’s THE TERMINATOR (1984, James Cameron) January 17-20, the lineup also includes its sequel, TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (1991), along with films spanning five decades of looking to the formerly far-flung future, from Richard Fleischer’s SOYLENT GREEN (1973) and Mamoru Oshii’s GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995), to Alfonso Cuarón’s CHILDREN OF MEN (2006), Brian DePalma’s MISSION TO MARS (2000), Tim Burton’s PLANET OF THE APES (2001), Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM (2013), Doug Liman’s EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) and more.
