Happy almost 4th of July Music Boxers! Once you’ve eaten your fill of hotdogs and watched the fireworks, check out the great screenings we have this week!
From director Bong Joon Ho (The Host) comes Snowpiercer, South Korea’s highest grossing film! In the future, the only survivors of a failed global-warming experiment live aboard the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe. A class system evolves, and one man (Chris Evans) will risk everything to lead a revolt for control . Currently rated 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, Snowpiercer is a sci-fi/action extravaganza not to be missed.
50 years ago, the biggest rock band ever took over the big screen. This week, The Beatles are back, in the stunning re-release of A Hard Day’s Night. Featuring unforgettable performances of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “And I Love Her,” and the title tune, the Chicago Tribune calls this rock and roll musical “Just about perfect”.
Our musical matinee series continues on Saturday & Sunday morning with 42nd Street, the archetypal backstage musical featuring those wonderful Busbey Berkeley dance numbers!
Described by Gene Siskel as “one extremely violent, protracted attack on the senses,” our weekend midnight film is Aliens, James Cameron’s sequel that trades the dread and horror of the original for an extraterrestrial action film not to be missed!
We also have another week of screenings of the rom-com to end all rom-coms, They Came Together, starring Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler and New York City (Which is like another character in the film). For a more straightforward romance, catch our Wednesday night screening of And So It Goes, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Presented by the New York Film Critics Series, this one-night-only screening will be followed by a pretaped Q&A with director Rob Reiner.
Finally, don’t forget about our Son of 70mm Film Festival from July 11th-24th. We’re screening larger-than-life films in the format they were meant to be seen, everything from Vertigo to Spartacus to Tron, and much more. Tickets on sale now, get them before they sell out!
See you at the movies!
