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.

DAILY GRINDHOUSE is sponsoring a 70mm screening or Walter Hill’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fable” STREETS OF FIRE at midnight at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago.
