Coolidge at The Greenway: Tremors

Experience cinema classics under the stars with this free, outdoor summer film series entirely presented on 35mm.

Screenings will take place at sunset at the Greenway’s Wharf District Park (located between Milk and India Streets in Boston).

The race to higher ground is on when two handymen (Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward) and a local seismology student discover that their little town of Perfection, Nevada, is infested with stinky subterranean man-eating worms. Before the film, Boston College paleobotanist Dr. Paul Strother will discuss how organisms like the creatures in Tremors evolved.

Handymen Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Ward) are tired of their dull lives in the small desert town of Perfection, Nevada. But just as the two try to skip town, they happen upon a series of mysterious deaths and a concerned seismologist (Finn Carter) studying unnatural readings below the ground. With the help of an eccentric couple (Reba McEntire, Michael Gross), the group fights for survival against giant, worm-like monsters hungry for human flesh. Part modern horror-thriller, part tribute to 1950s low-budget sci-fi films, this is the first (and best!) installment of the Tremors franchise.

Rain Date: Thursday, 7/14
