Back in 1984, nobody knew we were watching the future governor of Cali on screen in the sci-fi thriller The Terminator. Arnold Schwarzenegger was the ultimate cyborg assassin (he'd been practicing being robotic for years). The Terminator was sent back in time from a future where machines ruled the world. His mission was to prevent the birth of a future savior for humankind by killing his mom (the lovely and athletic Linda Hamilton). Chances are you've seen the film loads of times, but when was the last time you saw it on a big screen? This is good prep for Terminator fans who are anxiously awaiting the release of the fourth Terminator film later this summer. 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713- 866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $9.
Fri., May 15, 11:55 p.m.; Sat., May 16, 11:55 p.m., 2009
