About The Manchurian Candidate
Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) is a Staff Sergeant in the Korean war serving alongside Major Ben Marco (Frank Sinatra) when their patrol is ambushed by Communist soldiers. Having escaped, the squad returns to the U.S. where Raymond is to receive the Medal of Honor for single-handedly saving the lives of his squad. Marco, however, becomes suspicious of Shaw after his recurring nightmares lead him to believe there is more to the rescue than meets the eye, and launches himself into a world of corruption, politics, intrigue, and brainwashing. Tickets are $20, and include complimentary popcorn.
