From Dusk Till Dawn thrilled moviegoers on its initial release in 1996, stunned audiences with Salma Hayek’s now iconic snake dance scene, and launched the film career of George Clooney. It’s since gained a rabid cult following and spawned two film sequels as well as “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” now in its third season on El Rey Network (www.elreynetwork.com), a 24-hour English language network founded by Robert Rodriguez.
“From Dusk Till Dawn is unpredictable, creative and breathtakingly original, a movie that almost defies description,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “Fathom is excited to help bring this collaboration of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, two of the unique voices in modern American cinema, back to the big screen for four special showings to commemorate its 20th anniversary.”
It’s nonstop thrills when George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino star as the Gecko brothers - two dangerous outlaws on a wild crime spree. After kidnapping a father (Harvey Keitel) and his two kids (including Juliette Lewis), the Geckos head south to a seedy Mexican bar to hide out in safety. But when they face the bar’s truly notorious clientele, they’re forced to team up with their hostages in order to make it out alive. From Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, the creators of Grindhouse, From Dusk Till Dawn is explosive action entertainment.
