25th anniversary!

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day, he is an average computer programmer, and by night, a hacker known as Neo. Neo (Keanu Reeves) has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity has been captured by a race of machines that live off human body heat and electrochemical energy, and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the Agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.

35mm print! Part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration Series!

Co-presented by Kung Fu Clubhouse, who will provide special intros before the June 13th and June 15th showings.

The Matrix still stands up as a fiercely exciting and discombobulating futurist drama, which pioneered breathtaking ‘bullet-time’ action sequences inspired by Asian martial arts.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“[It] isn’t just a movie, it’s an entire philosophy that also examines metamorphosis and personal transformation to mirror The Wachowskis’ own personal journeys as trans women.” Sezín Koehler, Black Girl Nerds
