Gone in 60 Seconds 

When: Wed., April 13, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $5.50

OK, so the 2000 version with Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie does not count. DOES. NOT. COUNT. Writer-director-producer-star H.B. Halicki set the record for the longest car chase in cinema history (34 minutes out of a 105-minute run time); 93 cars were wrecked in this 1974 low-budget classic. There's a plot about a gang of thieves trying to steal a bunch of cars in a limited amount of time for a big payday, but really, it's about watching cars go boom, and sometimes you just need that. (Technically, there wasn't even a script, just some outlining and a couple pages of dialogue.) A number of the accidents in the film were real, and some people were almost killed; Haliki himself was killed while trying to do Gone in 60 Seconds 2. The definition of "don't try this at home," Gone in 60 Seconds was rightly billed as "Grand Theft Entertainment" in its original release. See for yourself for a mere $5.50 at this Cinema Overdrive 35-mm screening, which includes plenty of classic trailers before and after the film, along with original art prints on sale in the lobby. The screening starts at 8 p.m.—Zack Smith
