“1997: New York City is a walled, maximum security prison. Breaking out is impossible… Breaking in, is insane”


John Carpenter’s 1981 classic comes to the Odyssey Cinema in a brand new 4k restoration.


In a dystopian future following a 400% increase in crime, Manhattan Island has been converted to a walled prison where brutal prisoners are left to run the city. But when the US President (Donald Pleasence) crash-lands inside and is taken hostage by The Duke of New York (Isaac Hayes) the government send notorious outlaw and ex special forces war hero Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell in an iconic performance) into New York with a single mission: Rescue the president within 22 hours, or die.


Boasting one of the most impressive supporting casts ever assembled (Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Harry Dean Stanton, Adrienne Barbeau, Season Hubley and Tom Atkins to name but a few) and an unforgettable electronic score by John Carpenter himself.


Escape from New York is a landmark cult film which jolts along at a breakneck pace.


So sit tight, try and catch your breath and… plan your escape!
