History of the Future Film: Equilibrium



This summer we’re proud to present a film series examining gripping cinematic visions of the future emanating from different moments in recent history. Join us at FilmBar in Downtown Phoenix on the last Thursday of every month this summer, May through August, for The History of The Future: a series of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films paired with smart conversation from big thinkers and experts.

On August 25, we’ll be screening 2002’s Equilibrium, starring Christian Bale and Taye Diggs. In a fascist future where all forms of emotion are illegal, a man in charge of enforcing the law rises to overthrow the system.

Each History of the Future event begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $6 apiece, and include your first drink free. Buy tickets today!

Other History of the Future film events will take place at Filmbar on June 30 (Outland) and July 28 (The Lawnmower Man).
