"Taps into viewers' paranoia over a decrepit, vulnerable infrastructure and then provides bitter laughs and a harrowing catharsis." — Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

"The kind of gritty, relentless thriller that could only come from the '70s." — William Thomas, Empire Magazine

"The best to date of the new multiple-jeopardy capers, fresh, lively and suspenseful." —Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times

50th Anniversary Screening!


Somewhere underground, in New York's subway system, just outside the Pelham Station, a gang of armed men hijack a train, threatening to kill one hostage per minute unless their demands are met.

In the case of inclement weather, the screening will occur indoors.
