Assault On Precinct 13

FRI-SUN. 3/17-3/19. $8.
The 1976 original that put John Carpenter on the map, establishing his working ritual of writing, directing, and scoring his films, Assault follows the teaming up of cops and criminals to keep a brutal street gang at bay. Narrowly dodging an “X” rating at the time, the flick falls in line with the gritty ’70s crime dramas that are a genre unto themselves.
