No film captures the playful chaos of action cinema’s Golden Age like this undisputed masterpiece. An inexhaustible geyser of top-notch sex and violence, Hard Ticket to Hawaii exists beyond entertainment’s maximum limits. The Agency is a tough-as-nails, tech-savvy squad of physically ideal humans (led by Playboy icon Dona Speir and soap legend Ronn Moss) who defend Hawaii’s Molokai Island from diamond smugglers, narcotics slingers and a skateboarding maniac armed with an inflatable sex doll. Tirelessly and shirtlessly, they deal out homicidal justice at every turn — unleashing helicopters, motorcycles and deadly frisbees to ensure the safety of every bronzed boytoy and babe on the beach!

Restoration Tuesdays is a new series shining a light on the important work being done to preserve and promote the history of film. All admissions to these screenings is $5.00 Generously Sponsored by IATSE 856. 

Reviews

Imagine James Bond directed by Russ Meyer. Hard Ticket continues Sidaris’ subversion of standard gender roles, with women depicted as strong, resourceful and brave. Their strength is depicted as simply human.
