Kick off the new decade (!) with the Deuce Jockeys and a very rare 35mm screening of WIZARDS – Ralph Bakshi’s post-apocalyptic animated epic… and take a trip to the Paramount at Columbus Circle… where it opened on April 20, 1977!
After the death of his mother, the evil mutant wizard Blackwolf (Steve Gravers) discovers some long-lost military technologies. Full of ego and ambition, Blackwolf claims his mother’s throne, assembles an army and sets out to brainwash and conquer Earth. Meanwhile, Blackwolf’s gentle twin brother, the bearded and sage Avatar (Bob Holt), calls upon his own magical abilities to foil Blackwolf’s plans for world domination — even if it means destroying his own flesh and blood.
