Join MFA Film for George Miller and George Ogilvie's "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome" (1985), screened on 35mm!
The third film in the original "Mad Max" trilogy is set in the same post-apocalyptic universe, where mysterious events have plunged the world into a parched nuclear summer. Ex-cop turned vigilante Max (Mel Gibson) is scavenging in the Australian desert when he is captured and brought to the corrupt ruler of a local town, Aunty Entity (Tina Turner). On Entity’s orders, Max is sent to battle one of her enemies, Master Blaster, in a gladiatorial arena called Thunderdome.
The screening is part of "On the Fringe: American Cult Films of the 1980s" at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, highlighting wildly creative independent films from the 1980s and early '90s that opened viewers' minds to new ideas: supernatural phenomena, otherworldly creatures and the countercultures thriving on the fringes of American society. The yearlong series began in January and jumps forward a year each month before concluding in December with a film from 1991. Before the show, enjoy trailers and commercials from the year the film was made!
The MFA's Film Program is recognized as one of the country's leading independent exhibitors of film, presenting more than 500 screenings of independent, foreign and classic films every year.
