ACTION-FEST (Meet WARRIORS Live!, Triple Bill Each Night on 35mm)

By Mahoning Drive-in Theater (other events)

2 Dates Through Aug 27, 2022

The last weekend in August heats up when Exhumed Films scorches the screen with ActionFest at The Mahoning Drive-In Theater on August 26-28, with three nights of incendiary 35mm mayhem! Warriors, brawlers, commandos, ninjas and more will tear up the screen fighting for what’s right, snatching violent victory from the cliches of thugs, goons and evildoers!

See Schwarzenegger, Bronson, VanDamme and other icons of big screen brawnery bravely battle for swaggering cinematic supremacy with two nights of titanic triple features, followed by an evening of 80s action trailers that will pummel your peepers into action overload!

Friday August 26 - Walter Hill Triple Traction!

Friday night kicks off with Walter Hill’s gang war escape thriller THE WARRIORS (1979), with stars David Harris (“Cochise”) and Terry Michos (“Vermin”) in person to meet and greet and sell and sign autographs and photos! (They’ll also join us on Saturday night!)

Next up, Charles Bronson works as an underground boxer alongside James Coburn during the depression to get through some HARD TIMES (1975)!

If you’re not too pinch drunk at this point, buckle up and sit tight for Ryan O’Neal as THE DRIVER (1978) getaway wheelman extraordinaire, with Isabelle Adjani by his side and Bruce Dern as the lawman on his tail.

Saturday, August 27 - Arnold and Jean-Claude Vs The Demon Ninja!

Saturday night, Arnold Schwarzenegger teaches crummy criminals the lethal lesson that you DO NOT mess with his daughter in the 80s action classic COMMANDO (1985)! Remember when we said we wouldn’t screen COMMANDO? WE LIED.

We follow that mega melee with the completely bonkers Cannon Films martial arts/possession classic NINJA III: THE DOMINATION (1984), in which an aerobics instructor is possessed by a dying ninja, and all Fu breaks loose!

Once you’ve come to terms with what you’ve just seen, and have reassured yourself it wasn’t a fever dream, get ready for a foot to the face courtesy of Jean-Claude Van Damme in his star-making role in Cannon Films’ KICKBOXER (1989)!

As an added bonus, we’ll be joined on Saturday by Austin Trunick, author of THE CANNON FILM GUIDE book series, signing and selling copies of his books and introducing the Cannon Films titles on Saturday!
