On New Year’s Eve, the world turns upside down for the star studded cast of Irwin Allen’s classic disaster film “The Poseidon Adventure” (1972). Gene Hackman leads an all-star cast in this adventure film based on a novel by Paul Gallico and directed by Ronald Neame. Oscar winners Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Jack Albertson and Shelly Winters in an Oscar nominated performance bring to life all the anxiety, terror and suspense involved when a handful of passengers fight against time and the elements to try and survive and incredible disaster. Forget about going out for the festivities and come aboard the S.S. Poseidon for the most riveting New Year’s entertainment imaginable. Happy New Year!
