1986 in Film

In Temuco Chile, in 1986, you paid about two dollars to get into a movie theater. Not only that, but you got to see two features for the price of one. As a thirteen year old, I was beginning to occasionally have the freedom to go to the movies by myself. At the same time, I have no idea how I got permission to attend the one double feature that to this day stands out as one of the best movie going experiences of my life: Aliens and Big Trouble in Little China. I had no idea exactly what I was in for as I entered the theater. Greatness.
