'RoboCop' Returning to Theaters for 30th Anniversary (Exclusive)

Written by 

RoboCop is ready to serve and protect once again.

Monday marks the official thirtieth anniversary of the 1987 classic, and Alamo Drafthouse is using RoboCop's birthday to unveil some good news. Director Paul Paul Verhoeven’s film is returning to theaters for a one-night event that will feature RoboCop himself, actor Peter Weller.

The RoboCop event will be live-streamed to theaters around the country from Dallas City Hall, where the production filmed its OCP Headquarters scenes. The Dallas event will feature food trucks, a full bar with RoboCop-themed cocktails and plenty of photo ops.

Weller will participate in a Q&A after the screening. September's RoboCop event is presented by Birth.Movies.Death, SYFY Network,and Alamo Drafthouse. Ticketing information can be found here. And another important thing to remember: even if you can't make it to Dallas, the Alamo Drafthouse screenings will also be RoboCop parties, with props galore.

RoboCop was a big hit when it debuted in 1987, and has only grown in popularity over time. It tells the story of Alex Murphy (Weller), a Detroit police officer who dies in the line of duty, and is turned into a cybernetic officer with three directives: Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law.
