An ’80s Rock Opera for the Ages! Directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors) and featuring music by Rock God Jim Steinman, this modern musical soars. Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe, sporting an amazing pompadour and leather waders) and his gang of merciless biker friends kidnap rock singer Ellen Aim (a teenaged Diane Lane). Ellen’s former lover, soldier-for-hire Tom Cody (’80s mainstay Michael Paré), happens to be passing through town on a visit. In an attempt to save his star act, Ellen’s manager (we love Rick Moranis) hires Tom to rescue her. Along with a former soldier, Tom battles through dangerous cityscapes, determined to get Ellen back. So, pop on your leather jacket, hop on the back of your motorcycle, and get ready to rock on the Streets of Fire.
