THE DAILY RUNDOWN is a quick look at just a few of the cool screenings and film events happening around the U.S. every day. It is not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive list, but a sampling of the terrific genre cinema available to check out at your local art house, megaplex, film society, and repertory theaters.
TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 2017 (All show times are local)
HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE, Robert Townsend’s still relevant satire of racial stereotyping within the film industry is having a 30th anniversary on the campus of the University of Southern California at 7:00 pm. Townsend and co-writer Keenan Ivory Wayans will be on hand for a Q&A. This event is free and open to the public, but you need to RSVP ahead of time. All info can be found here.
I would be hard-pressed to call CADDYSHACK a classic, but it still a damn funny movie and marked the directorial debut of Harold Ramis. It is screening from a 35mm print at 9:15 pm at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers, NY. Tickets and info can be found here.
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is showing a double feature of Kurt Russell/John Carpenter collaborations. ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK screens at 7:30 pm and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA is at 9:40 pm. Both films are screening from 35mm prints. Tickets and info can be found here.
If you know of an under-the-radar theater or film society regularly putting together repertory screenings or special events, feel free to let me know on Twitter!
