Twenty-five years after his first on-screen appearance and fully 33 years since the fall of Saigon, John Rambo is still trying to live down the trauma of that conflict.
Unfortunately for his sake, the world won’t leave him alone.
The cinema/eatery Cinebarre celebrates Rambo’s return on Friday, Jan. 25, with an event dubbed “Rambo Blows Up Cinebarre.” Showtimes are 1:40, 4:40, 7:40 and 10:40 p.m.
The Cinebarre staff will be “dressed to defend” in its finest combat gear, and a dead-ringer for Rambo will be in the lobby to greet moviegoers and autograph photos (and, presumably, stitch their wounds up with household thread if need be).
In keeping with the theme, Cinebarre’s kitchen will be serving vegetarian rice bowl and its taps will flow with “bloody beer”
Cinebarre is located at 800 Brevard Road behind the Biltmore Square Mall. Tickets may be purchased through Fandango via the Cinebarre Web site. For more information, call 665-7776.
