First Friday August 6: Flash Gordon (1980)
Flash! Ah-aah. He'll save ev'ry one of us on First Friday
Discover the reason for all the recent extraordinary intergalactical upsets when “Flash Gordon” shows on First Friday, August 6. In this campy update of the 1930s comic strip, Flash is a quarterback for the New York Jets who is skyjacked aboard Dr. Zarkov’s rocketship along with beautiful travel agent Dale Arden, only to land on the art-deco planet Mongo. The trio forms alliances with the planet’s warring princes in order to save the Earth from destruction at the hands of Mongo’s malevolent master, Ming the Merciless.
