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, MAY 8, 2017 (All show times are local)


The Trylon Microcinema in Minneapolis, MN is providing a double shot of the Marx Brothers with a Hitchcock chaser. You can see your favorite anarchic comedy team in MONKEY BUSINESS at 7:00 pm and DUCK SOUP at 8:30 pm, or you can catch THE BIRDS at 7:00 pm at their Riverview location at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.





To continue on the Hitchcock kick, you can catch REAR WINDOW at the Alamo Drafthouse in Corpus Christi, TX at 8:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.



Quad Cinema in New York is showing the very funny and goofy DEATH BECOMES HER at 4:30 pm. This is a 35mm screening. Tickets and info can be found here.



I can’t tell you how many times I wished I could attend a 35mm screening of ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL. If I were in the San Francisco area, I could just go to the Alamo Drafthouse at 10:15 pm and catch The Ramones and P.J. Soles in all their late ’70s glory. Tickets and info can be found here.



THE HITCH-HIKER, a gritty little film noir directed by Ida Lupino, is playing at Doc Films on the University of Chicago campus at 7:00 pm. This is a 35mm screening. Tickets are $5 at the door. Info can be found here.



Alfred Hitchcock was so amazing, even his misfires are worth seeing. You can catch one of those few misfires when MARNIE plays at the Charles Theatre in Baltimore, MD at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.



BLAZING SADDLES may very well be Mel Brooks’ crowning accomplishment as a filmmaker. You can catch it at the Alamo Drafthouse in Winchester, VA at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.



If you know of an under-the-radar theater or film society regularly putting together repertory screenings or special events, feel free to let me know on Twitter!
