"The Matrix"

“The Matrix,” which still has viewers saying “Whoa” after all these years, turns 20 this year, and Aksarben Cinema, 2110 S. 67th St., is hosting a special screening.

The show, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, is being co-presented by Omaha Virtual Reality, Infusion Brewing and Legend Comics.

Attendees will be entered to win arcade time at Omaha Virtual Reality and treated to samples of Infusion Brewing’s Pistachio Porter.

Tickets are $10 and available at the box office or aksarbencinema.com.

He knows kung fu.
