Disguised as a human, a cyborg assassin known as a Terminator travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor. Sent to protect Sarah is Kyle Reese, who divulges the coming of Skynet, an artificial intelligence system that will spark a nuclear holocaust. Sarah is targeted because Skynet knows that her unborn son will lead the fight against them. With the virtually unstoppable Terminator in hot pursuit, she and Kyle attempt to escape.

Art House Convergence is thrilled to announce the return of Art House Theater Day (AHTD), a single day this July where exhibitors and audiences alike will come together to celebrate all that art house theaters and independent film contribute to our cultural landscape: ambitious and innovative art that provokes, challenges, entertains, and inspires.

This Art House Theater Day, AHC will premiere of the 40th anniversary high definition restoration of James Cameron's The Terminator. The film's producer, Gale Anne Hurd, shared: "Knowing that many people have never seen the film, or missed out on seeing it on the silver screen, I couldn’t be more thrilled to celebrate The Terminator's 40th Anniversary with its return to cinemas on Art House Theater Day. And for those of you who‘ve watched the film on the big screen previously, thank you — I hope you’ll enjoy the nostalgic experience of seeing it again!"

Included with The Terminator will be a pre-recorded AHC-exclusive Q&A between Cameron and Hurd on the film's indie roots and the critical importance of art house theaters.

Hurd notes, "People may wonder if The Terminator is truly an indie film. As the film’s producer, I can assure you it is. Jim Cameron and I made the film for $6.4 million, which included a completion bond and a 10% contingency. We had a variety of co-financiers, pre-sold rights and our distribution was through Orion Pictures rather than a major studio - the very definition of an indie film, both then and now!"
