The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is celebrating the 20th anniversary of JACKIE BROWN by pairing it up with complementary films this week.

Tickets and info can be found here.
It may lack the gut punch surprise ending of the first film, but SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS is still a fun time for slasher fans. It is screening from a rare 35mm print at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin at 10:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
A 35mm print of Nicolas Roeg’s THE WITCHES is being screened at Quad Cinema in New York at 5:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
The Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR is showing the mid-’80s Cynthia Rothrock vehicle ABOVE THE LAW at 7:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
You can never accuse Brian Yuzna’s directorial debut SOCIETY of being too subtle. But what it lacks in finesse, it makes up for in anger and pure gooey makeup effects. You can catch it screening from a 35mm print at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn at 9:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
