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, NOVEMBER 27, 2017 (All show times are local)
The Music Box Theatre is screening 35mm prints of two really fun films. First is Warren Beatty’s colorful, stylish DICK TRACY (presented by the Chicago Film Society) at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info for that screening can be found here. At 9:30 pm is BEETLEJUICE, arguably Tim Burton’s best film. Tickets and info for that screening can be found here.
Filled with over-the-top plot twists, bloodthirsty girl gangs, and ridiculous dialogue, THE VIOLENT YEARS could only have been written by Ed Wood. You can catch this camp classic at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers, NY at 9:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
THE DRAGON LIVES AGAIN, one of the most insane of the films that came out following the death of Bruce Lee that attempted to cash in on his name, is playing at the Senator Theatre in Baltimore at 1:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Laurelhurst Theater and Pub in Portland, OR is showing George Miller’s ambitious supernatural comedy THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK at 6:45 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Hitchcock’s beautiful and sinister adaptation of REBECCA is being screened from a 35mm print at Doc Films on the University of Chicago campus. Tickets are $5 at the door. All info can be found here.
Film Society at Lincoln Center in New York is showing Bob Clark’s essential Midwest Christmas movie A CHRISTMAS STORY at 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, and 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
