It’s National Art House Theatre Day! Join the celebration with a 40th anniversary screening of James Cameron’s The Terminator!

Art House Theatre Day is being celebrated at The Independent with an exciting screening of The Terminator, along with an exclusive Q&A with Director James Cameron and Producer Gale Anne Hurd on the film’s indie roots and the critical importance of art house theaters today. This conversation will play following the film and will be moderated by Amanda Salazar, Director of Programming at Vidiots, a non-profit video store and entertainment events hub for film lovers in the Los Angeles area.

“Knowing that many people have never seen the film or missed out on seeing it on the silver screen, I couldn’t be more thrilled to celebrate The Terminator’s 40th anniversary with its return to cinemas on Art House Theater Day,” said producer Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead,” Armageddon). “People may wonder if The Terminator is truly an indie film. As the film’s producer, I can assure you it is. Jim Cameron and I made the film for $6.4 million, which included a completion bond and a 10% contingency. We had a variety of co-financiers, pre-sold rights and our distribution was through Orion Pictures rather than a major studio – the very definition of an indie film, both then and now. We hope you’ll enjoy the nostalgic experience of seeing it this summer!”

A human soldier is sent from 2029 to 1984 to stop an almost indestructible cyborg killing machine, sent from the same year, which has been programmed to execute a young woman whose unborn son is the key to humanity’s future salvation.
