Tyneside Cinema has announced a series of screenings of Paul Verhoeven movies throughout April and May this year.
The “Paul Verhoeven Season” will celebrate the 83-year-old director’s accomplishments, with the legendary cinema set to screen some of his greatest films including Robocop and Basic Instinct.
Kicking things off with 1987’s action-packed classic Robocop on Saturday, April 9, the Verhoeven season is set to continue all the way through to Sunday, May 22, ending with the science-fiction military feature, Starship Troopers.
A total of ten films from Verhoeven’s filmography are set to be shown across the month-long season, classic features like Starship Troopers and the recent documentary You Don’t Nomi, which details the making of Verhoeven’s 1995 feature, Showgirls, are on the schedule.
Classic action flicks like the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring Total Recall is available alongside the lesser-known gem Hollow Man, starring Kevin Bacon and Josh Brolin in a loose adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man.
