Nancy Allen Hosts Special RoboCop Screening

In the years since RoboCop first burst on to the scene in 1987, there have been just two screenings at which stars Peter Weller and Nancy Allen were reunited with director Paul Verhoeven.

“Opening an office in LA was just a matter of time and focus,” says FCCE co-owner René Mioch. “Together with the daily news feed, we have a reach of hundreds of millions of people, bringing infotainment news as it is.
