Outdoor Screening of The Fifth Element

The 1997 hit film, THE FIFTH ELEMENT, will be screening at the Los Angeles Rooftop Cinema Club on June 20, 2018! This Academy Award Nominated film won French director Luc Besson a Cesar Award and features costume designs by Jean Paul Gaultier.

In the twenty-third century, the universe is threatened by evil. The only hope for mankind is the Fifth Element, who comes to Earth every five thousand years to protect the humans with four stones of the four elements: fire, water, Earth and air.

A Mondoshawan spacecraft is bringing The Fifth Element back to Earth but it is destroyed by the evil Mangalores. However, a team of scientists use the DNA of the remains of the Fifth Element to rebuild the perfect being called Leeloo (Milla Jovovich). She escapes from the laboratory and stumbles upon the taxi driver and former elite commando Major Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) who helps her to escape from the police.

Meanwhile, the Evil uses the greedy and cruel Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg (Gary Oldman) and a team of mercenary Mangalores to retrieve the stones and avoid the protection of Leeloo. But the skilled Korben Dallas has fallen in love with Leeloo and decides to help her to retrieve the stones.
