Part man. Part machine. All cop!
We’re bringing Paul Verhoeven’s ultra-violent satire of 80s corporate culture ROBOCOP back to the big screen in the first of our new season of films! A film that seems to get more relevant with age! Screening from a remastered 4K print of the Director’s Cut.
It’s the not-too-distant future in crime-ridden Old Detroit. A corporate conglomerate is running the city and has developed a huge metal android to combat rampant street crime. When their creation demonstrates a murderous “glitch,” Robert Morton sees an opportunity to advance his company position by building a better cop machine. He gets his chance when street cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is brutally killed by a gang of sadistic hoodlums. Murphy’s body is reconstructed by technicians and dubbed Robocop.
Starring Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O’Herlihy
Reviews & Awards
Winner, Special Achievement in Sound Effects – Academy Awards 1988

“What follows is a blast of an action movie that still manages to be funny, touching, and has one of the best ending lines of any movie ever. Really.” – Decider
“When the law-enforcing RoboCop cleans up corrupt Motown, his victory is satisfying because he’s got machinery and morals on his side. RoboCop is where high-tech meets High Noon.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
ROBOCOP is rated 18. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
