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.
TUESDAY, JULY 18, 2017 (All show times are local)
The Laurelhurst Theater and Pub in Portland, OR is screening the cult favorite VAMPIRE’S KISS at 9:40 pm. If you haven’t seen this one, it features possibly the most unhinged performance of Nicolas Cage’s career, which is definitely saying something. Tickets and info can be found here.
Go check out a 35mm screening of BLOOD FEAST, H.G. Lewis’ classic splatter film that wears its bad taste as a badge of pride. It is playing at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn at 9:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
The double feature of Roman Polanski’s horror classic REPULSION (screening from a 35mm print) at 7:00 pm and Olivier Assayas’ divisive PERSONAL SHOPPER at 8:55 pm is playing at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Tickets and info can be found here.
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is showing a double feature of crazy sci-fi/action/sexploitation flicks from the heyday of Hong Kong exploitation films. At 7:30 pm is ROBOFORCE and at 9:45 pm is ROBOTRIX. Both films are screening from 35mm prints. Tickets and info can be found here.
I have said it before and I will say it again. If you get the chance to see MIGHTY PEKING MAN screen from a 35mm print, you take it. It is playing at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR at 7:30 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!
