The American Cinematheque, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and SKED TK announced today that to celebrate the 30th anniversary of sci-fi thriller The Terminator, they will be hosting a special screening of the film and panel discussion on October 15, 2014 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
Star Arnold Schwarzenegger will be present along with writer/director James Cameron and writer/producer Gale Anne Hurd for a Q&A after the film set to be moderated by Geoff Boucher.
“The Terminator was my first baby, and I’m pleased that people still remember it enough to celebrate its birth 30 years ago,” Cameron said. “Of course I’ll be there!”
“The Terminator has tremendous sentimental value to me personally and I take great pride in knowing that fans continue to support the film 30 years later,” said Hurd.
Tickets for next month’s event will cost $25 and can be purchased starting tomorrow at Fandango.
Released on October 26, 1984 with a budget of just $6.4 million, The Terminator went on to gross just $38 million at the domestic box office with a worldwide total of $78 million. Its follow-up, Terminator 2: Judgement Day would be released seven years later, taking in over $500 million at the global box office. A reboot of the franchise, titled Terminator Genisys, is currently in post-production with an eye for release on July 1, 2015.
