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, JULY 24, 2017 (All show times are local)
You can close your eyes and throw a rock in any direction this week and you will hit a screening of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in honor of the late, great George A. Romero. So randomly just drawing one out of a hat, you can catch it at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn at 9:45 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Quad Cinema in New York continues their Mario Bava retrospective with the very good Viking adventure KNIVES OF THE AVENGER at 5:00 pm, a 35mm print of his final film SHOCK at 7:00 pm, and a 35mm print of the oddball comedic spaghetti western ROY COLT AND WINCHESTER JACK at 9:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Christopher Nolan’s breakthrough feature MEMENTO is playing at the Alamo Drafthouse in San Antonio at 7:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
John Huston’s classic adaptation of THE MALTESE FALCON is playing at the Charles Theatre in Baltimore at 7:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
