Congratulations, Detroit. In 1987, Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop cemented it as the most violent city in the world, an honor the Motor City resented for decades until its powers that be realized they may as well erect a statue of Peter Weller and milk the tourism. Now, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cyborg law and the 25th anniversary of the SyFy network, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema presents the SYFY25 Screening Series: RoboCop Movie Party with Livestream Q&A. Here's a fun fact: Several scenes from the flick were filmed in Irving and Dallas (go, Texas) and the livestream is being broadcast from Dallas's City Hall, which served as the Orwellian OCP Headquarters. So if you're in the mood for ultra-violence, Verhoeven style, and you prefer the original over 2014's Tehran-based, PG-13 version by José Padilha, then buy your tickets now ... you have 15 seconds to comply. As for the Q&A, it's Peter Weller himself who'll be answering questions on the big screen, and you'll want to grab some special props at the door to interact with the film.
