Peter Bradshaw presents: The Terminator15

Directed by James Cameron | USA | 1984 | 1h 47m | Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Michael Biehn, Paul Winfield, Bill Paxton

A cyborg assassin travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor, whose unborn son is destined to lead humanity’s fight against the rule of robots. The planet’s fate lies in the hands of a lone-warrior sent to protect Sarah Connor and defeat a virtually indestructible machine. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the role he was born to play in James Cameron’s relentless sci-fi thriller that continues to be an influence on modern-day blockbusters.

A one-off screening including a introductory talk and Q&A from Chief Film Critic at The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw.


‘Getting the extraordinary physical specimen of Arnold Schwarzenegger for the lead was a stroke of genius and a stroke of fortune.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
