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.


FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 2018 (All show times are local)


Jack Hill’s bizarre and hilarious SPIDER BABY is showing at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn at midnight. Tickets and info can be found here.



Technically, it’s not really grindhouse, but you cannot pass up the chance to see a newly restored presentation of Powell and Pressburger’s gorgeous fantasy A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH. It’s playing at the Northwest Film Center in Portland, OR at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.



Doc Films on the University of Chicago campus continues to kill it with their programming this week. At 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm, catch a 35mm screening of Nicolas Roeg’s classic DON’T LOOK NOW. Tickets are $5 at the door. All info can be found here.



Ridley Scott’s “final cut” of BLADE RUNNER is screening from a 35mm print at Quad Cinema in New York at 6:25 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.

How do you pass up a Yeti movie starring Peter Cushing that is screening from a 35mm print? You don’t. Go see THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN at Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, MA at midnight. Tickets and info can be found here.
