Thirst Aid Kit Presents: Point Break

Monday, October 7, 2019

Bim Adewunmi and Nichole Perkins, hosts of Slate‘s newest podcast, Thirst Aid Kit, are returning to the IFC — and proud to present this screening of POINT BREAK.


Come and witness the forbidden love story between a bank-robbing surfer and the FBI agent who’s supposed to bring him in. Featuring two of our favorite Thirst Objects in two of their most iconic roles, POINT BREAK has everything: rubber masks, Swayze (and that haircut) at his cocky best, an agonized Keanu shooting his gun into the sky, and of course, that 50-Year Storm. 


Join us for the latest Thirsty Movie Night. Come lust out loud with us — “little hand says it’s time to rock and roll!”
