Personally, I think I DRINK YOUR BLOOD is a terrible film, but even I would not turn down the chance to see it screen from a 35mm print. You can do just that at the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis at 8:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
With THE DESPERATE HOURS, Humphrey Bogart returned to playing a hard-boiled criminal in one of his final roles. The result was a tense classic that could be considered a precursor to the home invasion genre. It is screening from a 35mm print at Quad Cinema in New York at 4:15 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Jean-Pierre Melville’s stylish heist flick BOB LE FLAMBEUR is showing at International House in Philadelphia at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
