April Film Night: "The Hunt for Red October" (1990)

Wednesday, April 3rd │ 7:00-9:00 pm
Members: Complimentary │ Non-Members: Standard Guest Fee

The Hunt for Red October, directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Thomas Crown Affair, Rollerball) and based on a novel by Tom Clancy, tells the story of a Soviet submarine, Red October, that is equipped with a new engine that allows it to run virtually silent and can lie outside of any city ready to shoot deadly missiles, as CIA agent Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) suspects. The timeframe is November 1984, before Gorbachev came to power. The Lithuanian sub-commander, Marko Ramius (Sean Connery), plans to defect, but will he do so? The plot goes hither and yon. More importantly will you find your way to the SAC film series exploring the Cold War, old and new?

Enjoy complimentary appetizers and wine during the film, as well as post-film discussion with film buff, Jim Clauss.
