Day:  Friday, October 31
Time:  9:15 pm
Location:  Studio on the Square
One of John Carpenter’s earlier films, They Live follows a drifter who realizes that the ruling class is a bunch of aliens and that the Earth has in fact been invaded by these extraterrestrials.  The aliens are manipulating people, tricking humans into spending money, reproduce, and be satisfied with the monotony of everyday life.  Now you might be asking yourself where the sports element is in this film, after all aliens taking over the world does not exactly scream sports themed like the other movies.  The sports element for this film lies in the star of the movie.  Retired wrestler and WWE  Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper plays John Nada, a man on a quest to save the world.
