Continuing our series of interactive, ‘out loud’ screenings. Some films deserve hushed reverence and quiet contemplation... these are not those films.

After eight years in prison, former US Ranger Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) just wants to get home to his wife (Monica Potter) and the daughter he’s never met. Unfortunately for him, the first available plane is a special prison plane that’s transporting the very worst of the worst criminals.

When notorious criminal Cyrus ‘The Virus’ Grissom (John Malkovich) leads a plan to take over the plane, Poe’s only hope of reuniting with his family is convincing the prisoners that he’s on their side while secretly working to prevent their escape plan!

Con Air is exactly the kind of loud, cheesy action film that the 90s is known for. Bring your friends along to enjoy each ridiculous line of dialogue, every explosion and Nicolas Cage’s glorious wig.

We will be handing out Action Movie Bingo cards on the night for you to join in the fun – cross off each of the action movie tropes to score BINGO and win some prizes.
