Get your trucker hats ready because Grindflicks Fargo is wrapping up the 2017 Movie Night series by (literally) going ‘Over the Top’!
For the uninitiated, this 1987 film stars Sylvester Stallone as Lincoln Hawk – a hard-working, blue collar trucker trying to rebuild the relationship with his estranged son while doing a little arm wrestling on the side to make some extra cash.
The plot may sound a bit melodramatic but don’t forget that ‘Over the Top’ is a Golan-Globus production; the same masterminds behind such “classics” as ‘Breakin’’, ‘Bloodsport’ and ‘Masters of the Universe’! This movie is full-tilt lunacy packing in more hat-turning, motor-oil-chugging, greased-up muscle-y dudes than you can shake a meaty forearm at! And let’s not forget that killer soundtrack featuring the likes of Kenny Loggins, Sammy Haggar and Giorgio Moroder(?).
Along with this fine feature, Grindflicks is (of course) going to be dishing out another batch of vintage movie trailers but – as an added bonus for the final Movie Night – after the movie we’re going to be asking the audience members to go ‘Over the Top’ themselves in our COED ARM WRESTLING CONTEST!
Ladies and gents will go toe-to-toe with each other for a chance to win not only a free pass to an upcoming Aquarium show of their choice(!) but also a replica of the iconic Bonneau baseball cap that Stallone wears in the movie!
On top of all this Grindflicks will be doing random prize giveaways throughout the evening and the Aquarium will be serving free popcorn and tasty beverages to fuel those engines!
Again, this is Grindflicks’ final movie of the 2017 Movie Night series so make plans to join us at the Aquarium on Thursday, March 9th, and go ‘Over the Top’!
