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.


WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 2017 (All show times are local)


The Alamo Drafthouse in Denver is showing the odd, semi-haunted house film BURNT OFFERINGS at 7:30 pm. It’s not a classic, but a cast that includes Oliver Reed, Bette Davis, and Karen Black cannot be ignored. This is a 35mm screening. Tickets and info can be found here.

Both films are being screened from 35mm prints. Tickets and info can be found here.
