***In 70MM***

Is it a guilty pleasure, a trainwreck, or a misunderstood masterpiece? The world may never agree, but there's one thing you can definitively say about George Lucas' cinematic interpretation of the cult favorite Marvel comic book about a wise-quacking duck trapped in a world he never made: it sure isn't boring. Whether you're amazed at how weird this mega-budget adaptation turned out to be (made all the more bizarre via this rare 70mm screening), or you're savoring the underappreciated comedic contributions from Lea Thompson and Tim Robbins, there's no denying that HOWARD THE DUCK gives movie geeks and comic book nuts something to talk/argue about.
