The USA Film Festival will present a 25th anniversary screening of They Live, the science fiction classic from director John Carpenter. In this brilliant satire of consumerism in the age of mass media, wrestler-turned-actor Roddy Piper stars as Nada, a drifter passing through L.A. who discovers a pair of special sunglasses that clue him in to the world as it really is, one in which people are being bombarded with subliminal messages designed to keep them docile and submissive. Even scarier is what he sees when he looks at the people around him: aliens in disguise who run the massive campaign to keep mankind subdued for their own nefarious gain. Nada teams with a construction worker (Keith David) and beautiful collaborator (Meg Foster) to free the human race.

Meg Foster will be in attendance.
