    Movie night: They Live

    7pm – 9pmWooden Shoe Books 704 South St
    They Live is a 1988 American science fiction action thriller film written and directed by John Carpenter, and based on the 1963 short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. It follows an unnamed drifter ]played by Roddy Piper, who discovers that the ruling class are aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to spend money, breed, and accept the status quo with subliminal messages in mass media. Explored deeply in Nom Chomsky's "Requiem for the America Dream", this classic film invites reflection upon the assumptions that we unquestioningly follow every day and the ways in which society, culture, and media silently indoctrinate us into an ideology of consumption and control.
