The cult-classic film, “Raising Arizona” will be on the big screen again after more than 30 year from its release.

In this 1987 Coen Brothers comedy, ex-con “Hi” (Nicolas Cage) and ex-cop “Ed” (Holly Hunter) meet, marry and long for a child in the wilds of Arizona. When Ed discovers she's barren, the unconventional solution is presented: to snatch a baby from a set of quintuplets. Thus begins a series of kidnappings, capers and goings-on that revolve around the helpless yet loveable child. Hi's convict friends, his boss, and even the Lone Biker of the Apocalypse become involved in the ever-twisting plot in the quest to own the baby.
