Free Screening of They Live

leadtheylive1The Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia is hosting a free screening of the John Carpenter film They Live. Released in 1988, They Live stars former pro-wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper as John Nada, a drifter who discovers a pair of sunglasses that allows him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth.

The screening is organized in conjunction with the ICA exhibition Myths of the Marble, which considers how the virtual is engaged by contemporary artists as a way to image and imagine the world as a site of possibility and a set of limitations. You can RSVP for the free screening here.
