The Original ‘RoboCop’ to Have 30th Anniversary Theatrical Release

In 1987 the original RoboCop hit theaters, and it was glorious. A mixture of satire, genuinely great action, and a robot that can’t handle stairs, it’s easily in my top five movies from the 1980s. It’s just a really great movie.

In celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary, Alamo Drafthouse will be hosting a one night event on September 10th. Peter Weller will be on hand at an event live streamed from Dallas City Hall (which served as the non-matte painting parts of OCP headquarters) to theaters across the country.

After a screening of the film, Weller will participate in a Q&A session. This event is being presented by Birth.Movies.Death, SYFY, and Alamo Drafthouse, and frankly is pretty damned exciting. Tickets for the event go on sale August 1st, and you can find more information at the event’s official webpage.

This is just neat.
