TOMBSTONE (1993)

  • Deptford Cinema 39 Deptford Broadway London, England, SE8 4PQ United Kingdom

"Behold the pale horse. The man who sat on him was death, and hell followed with him."

The story of the events that led up to the mythic shootout at the O.K. Corral with Val Kilmer's definitive portrayal of the louche Doc Holliday, and one of the most quotable scripts ever, in this unusual 90s psychological western.

After cleaning up the crime in Dodge City, Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) moves to Tombstone, Arizona, and wishes to get rich in obscurity. He meets his brothers there, as well as his old friend Doc Holliday (Kilmer). A band of outlaws that call themselves The Cowboys are causing problems in the region with various acts of random violence, and inevitably enter into a deadly confrontation with Holliday and the Earps. 

In 2017 we lost two of the stars of TOMBSTONE, Bill Paxton (Morgan Earp) and Powers Boothe ('Curly Bill' Brocius), this screening is a tribute to their work.
