Nitehawk presents a special screening of ROCKY with director John G. Avildsen in person for a Q&A!
Life’s not about how hard of a hit you can give… it’s about how many you can take, and still keep moving forward.
Rocky Balboa is an American icon of the underdog who works hard to achieve his goals and get the girl! Written and starring Sylvester Stallone, Rocky is about a slightly dimwitted boxer who, after working sleazy jobs as a loan shark and club fighter, gets picked at random to fight Apollo Creed for the heavyweight championship. With the rare chance to prove his worth, Rocky trains to win the title and everyone’s respect.
