They Live

Saturday, July 4, 2015, 8 p.m., Dryden Theatre

A homeless drifter (wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper) discovers a conspiracy by non-human aliens who have infiltrated American society in the guise of wealthy yuppies. With the help of special glasses that reveal the aliens’ true faces and their subliminal messages, our hero tries to stop the invasion. What used to be known as a deliriously imaginative satire of Reaganomics and the “greed is good” era, reveals itself 25 years later as one of the most accurate predictions of the world and its class divide today. A cult masterpiece.
