Today marks the 30th anniversary of the original RoboCop and, to celebrate, the movie is heading back to theaters! That's right, Infinite Earths fans! Director Paul Paul Verhoeven’s classic film is returning to theaters for a one-night event that will feature RoboCop himself, actor Peter Weller.
The RoboCop event will be live-streamed to theaters around the country from Dallas City Hall, where the production filmed its OCP Headquarters scenes. The event will also feature food trucks and a full bar featuring RoboCop-themed cocktails and plenty of photo ops.
Peter Weller will also participate in a Q&A after the screening.
Set to kick off in September, the event is presented by Birth.Movies.Death, SYFY Network,and Alamo Drafthouse. For those unable to make the main event, keep in mind that the Alamo Drafthouse screenings will also be RoboCop parties.
Tickets for the event go on sale August 1st, while the screening takes place September 10th.
Released in 1987, RoboCop tells the story of Alex Murphy, a Detroit police officer who dies in the line of duty, and is turned into a cybernetic officer with three directives: Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law. The movie was a huge hit and would spawn two sequels - and an ill-fated reboot in 2014 starring Joel Kinnaman.
