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, JUNE 16, 2017 (All show times are local)
An awesome Paul Verhoeven double feature at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles features ROBOCOP at 6:30 pm and STARSHIP TROOPERS at 8:45 pm. Both films are being screened from 35mm prints. Tickets and info can be found here.
Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn has two very different but equally cool midnight movies. You can choose from watching Gregory Peck learn that his adopted son is the Antichrist in THE OMEN or watch Sean Connery as a savage in a diaper dismantle a corrupt society in ZARDOZ. Either choice you make is the correct one. Tickets and info for THE OMEN can be found here. Tickets and info for ZARDOZ can be found here.
David Cronenberg’s uncompromisingly bleak and disturbing THE BROOD is playing at the Amherst Cinema in Amherst, MA at 9:45 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
The Stephen King-penned anthology CAT’S EYE is playing at the Denver Film Society at 9:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
It’s not a classic, but STRIPES contains some of Bill Murray’s funniest moments on film, capably aided by the late great Harold Ramis and Warren Oates. It is playing at the Metrograph in New York at 4:00 pm and 9:30 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!
