Pulp Fiction (1994)

Wed 1 Mar 2017 7.30PM Main Auditorium // €7.50 / €6 conc

One of the most influential films of the 1990s (and nominated for 7 Oscars), the outrageously violent, time-twisting Pulp Fiction is a delirious mix of thrills, pitch-black humour and pop-culture touchstones. The Oscar-winning script by Tarantino and Roger Avary intertwines three stories, featuring Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta as hit men; Bruce Willis as a boxer out of a 1940s B-movie; and such other stalwarts as Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, whose dance sequence with Travolta proved an instant classic.
