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.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2017 (All show times are local)
Mario Bava’s 5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON is playing at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn at 7:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Quad Cinema in New York is showing two of Terry Gilliam’s best films. At 6:35 pm is TIME BANDITS and at 9:00 pm BRAZIL is screening from a 35mm print. Tickets and info can be found here.
I know I’m in the minority when I admit to finding DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING to be Lucio Fulci’s best film. You can catch it at the Alamo Drafthouse in Denver at 9:45 pm to see if you agree with me. Tickets and info can be found here.
It’s hard to believe the CHUCKY films have been going strong since 1988. Need a reminder? Go see the original CHILD’S PLAY at 9:30 pm at the Laurelhurst Theater and Pub in Portland, OR. Tickets and info can be found here.
David Cronenberg’s brilliant and incredibly uncomfortable DEAD RINGERS is playing at the Trylon Cinema in Minneapolis at 7:00 pm and 9:15 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is presenting a Hammer Films double feature. At 7:30 pm is HORROR OF DRACULA and at 9:25 pm is THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN. Both films are screening from 35mm prints. Tickets and info can be found here.
