SCREENING

Johnny Mnemonic

Friday, Feb 16, 2024 at 8:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Robert Longo. 1995, 96 mins. With Keanu Reeves, Dolph Lundgren, Udo Kier, Takeshi Kitano, Ice-T. Artist Robert Longo’s singular vision meets Hollywood in Johnny Mnemonic, adapted from William Gibson’s story of the same name and set in a dystopian 2021. Four years before he became Neo in The Matrix, Reeves plays a robot-like data courier, whose brain has been altered to serve as secure storage for sensitive data, at the expense of his childhood memories.  Dismissed at the time as “high-tech trash” (Variety), the film is nevertheless thoroughly entertaining, and foreshadows our current networked society, cautioning against overdependence on technology. 

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / discounted for MoMI members ($7–$11). Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.

See Alphaville and Johnny Mnemonic for $20.
