Moscow Film Society: The Thing

Wednesday, April 10 at 7 PM

“The Thing is a peerless masterpiece of relentless suspense, retina-wrecking visual excess and outright, nihilistic terror.”
— Adam Smith, Empire Magazine
Moscow Film Society and University of Idaho Library present THE THING as part of their Main Street Video Staff Picks series. The Staff Picks series recreates the video store’s iconic employee-curated shelf and coincides with the release of UI Library’s Main Street Video project, an oral historical exploration of the last video store in Moscow.
THE THING follows a research team in Antarctica that is hunted by a shape-shifting alien, assuming the appearance of its victims. John Carpenter’s tense sci-fi thriller is rife with compelling tension and remarkable makeup effects. A film that found its audience through the video store and became a cult hit, it was a constant presence on Staff Pick shelves everywhere. Now is your chance to see it on the big screen!
Sponsored by University of Idaho Library and the Main Street Video Project.
Rated: R | 1 hr 49 min | Tickets: $8 Adult / Film Pass
