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, AUGUST 21, 2017 (All show times are local)
The Pedro Almodovar retrospective at the Denver Film Society continues with his take on the film noir in BAD EDUCATION at 4:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York is showing John Carpenter’s classic ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 at 2:00 pm. Tickets and info for that film can be found here. Then at 6:30 pm, Howard Hawks’ equally classic RIO BRAVO is being screened from a 35mm print. Tickets and info for that film can be found here.
