For a film that drove its director to the brink of madness and almost killed its main star (Martin Sheen), it's a miracle that Apocalypse Now was ever finished. Insanely ambitious and loosely based on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Coppola intended for this epic film to be an only slightly exaggerated depiction of the madness of the Vietnam War. Also featuring career-defining performances by Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando, and Dennis Hopper, the film also features a young pre-Star Wars Harrison Ford and an even younger Laurence Fishburne.

There are numerous trailers, but the best one I could find is here:

Doors open at 6:45pm, film starts at 7:45pm. Tickets are $10.
