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.

If you’ve never seen the glory that is BABE: PIG IN THE CITY, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX (Ritz location) is ready to blow your mind. George Miller’s certifiably insane and beautiful film is one of the most unlikely sequels ever made and I love it. This is a 35mm screening at 10:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
MILLER’S CROSSING, the slick, entertaining gangster film from the Coen Bros., is playing at the Laurelhurst Theater and Pub in Portland, OR at 9:15 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
ABBY, William Girdler’s crazed ripoff of THE EXORCIST is playing at the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas, TX at 9:00 pm. This is a new 2K transfer of a print restored by the American Genre Film Archive. Tickets and info can be found here.
God help me, I have a fondness for Howard Stern. I am sure a lot of that comes from Betty Thomas’ much-better-than-it-had-to-be adaptation of his memoir PRIVATE PARTS. The Metrograph in New York is screening a 35mm print at 9:45 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is screening a hell of a double feature. First up is a brand new 35mm print of RESERVOIR DOGS at 7:30 pm. Then at 9:45 pm, the longer Roadshow Version of THE HATEFUL EIGHT, screening from a 35mm print. Tickets and info for both films can be found here.
