SHORT CIRCUIT (PG)
An Evening with Nick McLean
Triskel Christchurch | Fri 8 March | 6.15pm
98 mins – United States 1986 – Dir: John Badham
Starring: Ally Sheedy, Steve Guttenberg and Fisher Stevens
In this classic 80’s sci-fi comedy, an experimental military robot escapes after being struck by lightning and given human intelligence. He finds a home with a kind-hearted young woman, played by Stephanie Speck, who believes he’s an alien. Filmed in the same small Oregon town as The Goonies (1985) and Kindergarten Cop (1990), this nostalgic flick and the endearing rogue robot, Number 5, will appeal to all ages.
