War Games  

May 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Dir: John Badham 
USA 1983, 1h 24mins

In this 80’s classic a young computer whiz kid accidentally finds a back-door into a top-secret super-computer, which has complete control over the U.S.A’s nuclear arsenal. It challenges him to a game between America and Russia and he innocently plays along - unknowingly starting the countdown to World War Three. Now the kid has to convince the computer he wanted to play a game and not the real thing.

A brilliant family film that rests the fate of the world on the ability of a super-computer to learn the parallels between the unwinnable game of Tic-Tac-Toe and the lose-lose scenarios of the Cold War.
