I ♥ RETRO INVITES YOU TO THE ULTIMATE DISASTER DOUBLE FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER OF DISASTER, IRWIN ALLEN!
AUSTRALIAN PREMIER: THE FIRST TIME EVER PERMITTED TO BE SCREENED TOGETHER ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Irwin Allen’s production of the Poseidon Adventure began the era of the grand, ALL STAR cast disaster survival film, which he followed two years later on an even bigger scale with The Towering Inferno.
Join us for two smashing on-screen parties that erupt into incredible rides of survival. Celebrate the opening of the world’s tallest, most sophisticated building where one tiny spark becomes a night of blazing suspense, where there’s no way out and no way down, and bring in the New Year aboard SS Poseidon, when she’s struck by a 90-foot tidal wave and capsizes, following a colourful band of passengers in a ‘Hell Upside Down’ as they desperately climb towards daylight.
WHO WILL SURVIVE? IN TWO OF THE GREATEST DISASTER FILMS EVER!
Rarely have so many Hollywood icons been assembled together: (The Towering Inferno) Paul Newman, Steve Mcqueen, Faye Dunaway, Robert Wagner, William Holden, Fred Astaire, Richard Chamberlain, Jennifer Jones, Robert Vaughn. (The Poseidon Adventure) Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens, Shelly Winters, Jack Albertson, Pamela Sue Martin.
THE TOWERING INFERNO
Eight Academy Award nominations and three Oscars.
On the night of the buildings dedication, fire erupts, trapping people on the upper floors…and igniting multiple tales of heroism and loss involving a firefighter (Steve McQueen), an architect (Paul Newman) and others caught in the steel-and-glass inferno (including William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire and Jennifer Jones). With starpower, pyrotechnics and suspense in abundance, The Towering Inferno sizzled at box offices worldwide.
THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE
One of the most gripping disaster films of all time follows ten survivors as they struggle to escape from an ocean liner capsized by a tidal wave. Suspenseful terror, combined with the victims’ intimate and personal stories, results in compelling and heart-stopping drama. The distinguished talents of 15 Academy Award winners, along with incredible special effects, make this film a true classic.
