Short Circuit

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.

“A message film to please all ages” Time Out


On Friday 8th March there will be a screening of the eighties box office hit Short Circuit which will be followed by a public discussion with McLean and Hot Press writer Wayne Byrne focussing on McLean’s storied career (the duo has just co-authored a book on McLean’s life and prolific work behind the camera). Later on the same evening, McLean will introduce a screening of the cult action movie Cobra.

Please note that the public discussion with Nick McLean will be part of the Short Circuit ticket price.

Standard ticket prices apply or see both films for €15 full price / €14 for annual membership holders
