The Last Starfighter

AUG 24 & 26 - SCI FI FILM FEST

2018 OMSI Sci Fi Film Fest Selection

"Greetings, Starfighter! You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Kodan Armada." So begins an adventure of galactic proportions in The Last Starfighter. After Earthling Alex (Lance Guest) conquers the Starfighter video game, he is recruited by alien Centauri (Robert Preston) to be part of an elite legion of fighters. Leaving behind his trailer park home for the outer regions of space, Alex becomes the last hope for the beleaguered Star League and hundreds of worlds - including Earth. 

 

"With The Last Starfighter, director Nick Castle and writer Jonathan Betuel have done something so simple it’s almost awe-inspiring: they’ve taken a very human story and accented it with sci-fi special effects, rather than the other way around." Variety

 

Duration: 108 mins. | Rating: PG
