Cyberpunk Movie Night: Hackers

While practicing the tricks of the trade, a neophyte "hacker" accomplishes the nearly impossible: he hacks the highly secured Gibson computer at the Ellingson Mineral Corporation. But in doing so, he unknowingly taps into a high-tech embezzling scheme which is masked by a virus that could cause a horrific environmental disaster. In the flash of a nanosecond, the young hacker and his pals are targeted for the crime by the FBI and Ellingson's deranged computer whiz, "The Plague". When they discover the terrifying extent of The Plague's warped plans, the group pools their techno skills together to launch a massive cyberspace attack, one that will hopefully clear their names and prevent a ecological disaster of global proportions.

Come see the underrated cyberpunk classic that’s absolutely packed with payphones, rollerblading through the streets of Manhattan, and a “Hack the Planet” call to action delivered on neon pagers. Along with being the first feature film of Angelina Jolie, it also features some of the best wardrobe design and a soundtrack so influential to 90’s electronic music, that it spawned two sequels (which is exactly two more than the movie did).
