After the screening, join us for a Q&A with Con Air and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle screenwriter Scott Rosenberg.

The greatest Michael Bay movie that Michael Bay had nothing to do with, Simon West’s (The Mechanic, The Expendables 2) directorial debut is proof that there is still a place for the amped up, overblown Hollywood blockbuster that hearkens back to Top Gun and Days of Thunder.

With a cast absolutely overflowing with character-acting bravado, Con Air is an unstoppable thrill-ride of self-aware meta-irony, perfect one-liners, topless muscle men, and slo-mo fireballs that puts Nicolas Cage in charge of saving the day as John Malkovich, John Cusack, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo, and Dave Chappelle all attempt to out-act each other.
