2015 marks the 30th anniversary of Rocky IV‘s original US release when the Italian Stallion faced off against the Siberian Express, Ivan Drago in theatres on November 27, 1985. Rocky 4 marked the biggest grossing Rocky sequel of the entire series, bringing in over $296,000,000 in worldwide ticket sales. Some big Hollywood names attended the Los Angeles premiere at the Westwood Village Theatre back in 1985 including Olivia Newton-John, James Caan, Rob Lowe, Lorna Luft, Lisa Hartman, Tony Danza, and Gary Coleman. Of course Sly Stallone and then-girlfriend / Rocky IV co-star Brigitte Nielsen were present; interestingly, even Stallone’s newly divorced wife Sasha Stallone attended (with a date).
Lucky Miami, Florida residents will be treated to a special anniversary screening of Rocky IV next month when Popcorn Nights and O Cinema host a presentation of the film on the big screen. The screening will be hosted by Marc Ferman of PopcornNights.com and will feature giveaways by 80s Tees. Popcorn Nights and O Cinema have teamed up for a special monthly retro movie night that will take place the last week of each month, so stay tuned for other classic flicks if you live in the area.
