Each month The Gate hosts a special screening of a classic film, bringing it back to the big screen where it belongs. This June we have something really special - KING KONG.
"And lo, the beast looked upon the face of beauty. And it stayed its hand from killing. And from that day, it was as one dead."
KING KONG remains an unparalleled horror-fantasy whose gargantuan reputation is much deserved. An expedition exploring a remote island captures a gigantic ape and brings him back to New York. A beautiful actress who accompanies them provokes feelings of love in the mighty Kong, causing him to break free from his chains and bring terror to the streets. The ending is amongst the most memorable in movie history, guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye.
A true Hollywood legend, one of the most ambitious and iconic movies of all time, KING KONG made an impact on cinema that can still be felt today.
