Mad Max Weekend

May 27–29, 2016
A spectacular revival of a franchise that was launched by director George Miller in 1979, Mad Max: Fury Road was nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, and it won six (editing, production design, costume, makeup, sound design, sound mixing). The Mad Max movies, with their rugged, non-stop kinetic action sequences, stunning landscapes, and immersive post-apocalyptic settings are great big-screen entertainments.
