One of the benefits of living in Southern Californi, in exchange for the earthquakes and multi language ATMs, is you get to see cool stuff more often than you would in most other cities.  Case in point?  This 30th Anniversary screening of The Terminator with Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Cameron, and Gale Anne Hurd in attendance. The event will be held by the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood on October 15th and will be moderated by Geoff Boucher.

If you’re a member of the Cinematheque you can get tickets today.  If you’re not a member, you can buy them tomorrow.  They cost $25 but I’m sure it will be worth it to see this restoration on the screen and check out the Q&A.

In THE TERMINATOR, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the most fierce and relentless killing machine ever to threaten the survival of mankind!  An indestructible cyborg — a Terminator (Schwarzenegger) — is sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), the woman whose unborn son will become humanity’s only hope in a future war against machines. This legendary sci-fi thriller, fires an arsenal of action and heart-stopping suspense that never lets up!

The Terminator was my first baby, and I’m pleased that people still remember it enough to celebrate its birth 30 years ago,” Cameron said.  “Of course I’ll be there!”

The Terminator has tremendous sentimental value to me personally and I take great pride in knowing that fans continue to support the film 30 years later,” said Hurd.

Geoff Boucher, CEO of SKED TK and founder of the award-winning Hero Complex and former senior writer for Entertainment Weekly will moderate the Q&A panel. Boucher, through the SKED TK banner, also produces a successful screening and podcast series “HUMANS FROM EARTH” in association with Grant Moninger and Nerdist each month at The Egyptian Theatre.
