[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.

 

THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 2017 (All show times are local)

Turkish cinema in the ’70s was a magical mixture of ripoffs of popular films and genres from around the world with magical realism.

Go see the original FLATLINERS before the remake/sequel that is coming out later this year. It is playing at Film Bar in Phoenix at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
