Tonight: Terminator the Second Screens at The Belcourt

Terminator the Second Screening
When: 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22
Where: The Belcourt

Remember that “adaptation” of Raiders of the Lost Ark with schoolkids slavishly (even dangerously) re-creating every shot in their backyards? Those of us who saw the original Husky Jackal production of Terminator the Second felt like we were watching something very similar — an obsessive, endearingly geeky spit-and-baling-wire vision whose agonizing effort was more than rewarded by the explosive ovations it got.

The plot, that of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, belongs to James Cameron; the dialogue, assembled painstakingly by Marshall Weber and Cody De Vos from the First Folio, is by William Shakespeare. Frankly, we can’t imagine a video document capturing the electric mood of those standing-room-only live performances — but we’re just glad to have this DVD record, screening tonight as the first of a couple of events promoting the release.
