Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

The Roxy Theater is proud to present Essential Cinema, a monthly series of the most iconic and important films the artform has to offer.

Easily excitable Neal Page is something of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith, whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.
