PARK HILLS, Mo. – Mineral Area College’s student movie club, MACFlix, is once again offering free movies this fall on the outdoor big-screen on the Park Hills campus quadrangle (the waterfall area).

MACFlix continues its annual "Drive-In Nights" on Saturday, Sept. 30, with a free, widescreen presentation of the 1983 action thriller “Sudden Impact,” (rated R) at 7:30 p.m. and admission is free to everyone. MACFlix presents all films in their original, large, widescreen format along with an outstanding sound system.

Dr. Kevin White, sponsor of MACFlix, said the movie was chosen because of it being the fourth and most profitable film in the Dirty Harry series, as well as the only one directed by its star, Clint Eastwood. The film is best known for the catchphrase, “Go ahead and make my day,” which is uttered by Eastwood’s gun-wielding character at the start of the film as he stares down an armed robber who is holding a hostage.

The synopsis:

The film tells the story of a gang-rape victim (Sondra Locke) who decides to seek revenge on the rapists 10 years after the attack by killing them one by one. Detective Callahan (Eastwood), famous for his unconventional and often brutal crime-fighting tactics, is tasked with tracking down the serial killer. As the detective investigates the killings, he becomes romantically entangled with the woman as he is drawn deeper into the mystery surrounding the murders.

White said the movies are digitally re-mastered and presented with an extremely, high-quality projector/sound system in a theater environment. “The films shimmer beautifully on our specially-built widescreen, so the effect is like walking through a time machine and watching the movies in their very first weekend of release,” White said. “They're amazing to watch!”
