Gripping, pulse racing adrenaline meets MTV-spiked existentialism set to a techno beat in RUN LOLA RUN, a breathlessly hip blend of romance, thrilling action, and animation in perpetual motion. Tasked with the impossible, acquiring 100,000 Deutsche Marks in 20 minutes in order to save her boyfriend’s life, Lola races through three wildly different scenarios, each with a small variance. Exhilarating, heart-pounding urgency drives this punchy, non-stop thrill ride from visionary German director Tom Tykwer. First premiering to international acclaim in 1998, this dizzying, electro-sensation celebrates its 20 year anniversary at 140 BPM.
Come early on May 25 for a live set by DJ Troller (Holodeck Records), playing pulse-pounding electronic music beginning at 8:30 PM.
