[DAILY RUNDOWN] TODAY’S COOL SCREENINGS!

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.

 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2017 (All show times are local)

 

The Music Box Theatre in Chicago is screening two excellent Walter Matthau films as part of their “Noir City” series. At 5:00 pm and 9:30 pm is Matthau at his hard-boiled best as the titular character in CHARLEY VARRICK. Tickets and info for that film can be found here. At 7:15 pm, he’s a tired, acerbic transit cop negotiating with criminals who have taken a subway car of people hostage in THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE. Tickets and info for that film can be found here. Both films are being screened from 35mm prints.
