Catch a double feature of Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch at the Esquire.
It’s Christmastime and Billy gets a new fuzzy pet, Gizmo — an adorable mogwai — who comes with three very important rules: don’t get him wet, don’t feed him after midnight and don’t expose him to bright light.
After breaking more than one of those, he unleashes a bunch of mischievous monsters on an unsuspecting small town. Things take a turn in Gremlins 2, when Gizmo has been taken by scientists. Skyscrapers, building sprinklers, genetic serums and food courts lead to an entire anarchic gremlin army.
