ABOUT THE UNCAGED SERIES
UnCAGED: Vol. 2 – 90s Edition
Break out your snakeskin jacket, stow your tray tables, fasten your seatbelts, and switch on the siren, UnCAGED is back! After a global pandemic put an untimely pause on the inaugural UnCAGED in mid-March of 2020, we’re back and bigger than before. For UnCAGED Volume 2, we’re looking at the master of Western Kabuki during his zenith: the 1990s. A seemingly chaotic decade that saw Cage working with bonafide arthouse auteurs including David Lynch and Martin Scorsese, while also starring in direct-to-video erotic thrillers, and of course dominating the box office in the summer of ’97 with competing action masterpieces, the ‘90s gifted the world a Cage at his purest and most dedicated to his craft. Celebrate all that makes Nicolas Cage an incomparable entertainer every Wednesday in April, only at the Revue Cinema!
Presented without irony and with a respect for theatrical presentation, UnCaged offers a variety of Cages to contemplate. Visit the in-cinema UnCAGED marketplace for all your Cage collectible needs, including last edition’s sold-out Cage Trading Cards from artist Keenan Tamblyn, Cage swag, limited edition posters, and more!

“Put… the bunny… back… in the box” and grab your tickets to what is undoubtedly the most action-packed UnCaged yet. You’ve experienced surreal gothic Cage, you’ve braved erotic thriller Cage, and now, rounding out the ex-con trio, get ready for mile high Cage. With CON AIR, he enters full-blown action star status as a recently paroled prisoner on his way to meet his 8-year-old daughter for the first time. But first he must board a plane to Alabama with a murderer’s row of other convicts. We don’t need to tell you what happens next.
If you thought the other UnCaged screenings boasted an impressive supporting cast, wait until you get a load of the unhinged performances from John Malkovich, Steve Buscemi (of ZANDALEE fame), Ving Rhames (of BRINGING OUT THE DEAD fame), Mykelti Williams, Dave Chappelle, and so many more. Con Air hits the ground running and does not let up until its climactic crash landing through the Las Vegas strip. Seeing this high-octane masterpiece of cinematic excess with an enthusiastic crowd should be on everyone’s bucket list.
