Did you know John Williams did the NBC Nightly News theme? Makes sense, doesn’t it? Welcome to another round of Nitehawk News, your source for everything that’s going on at our fine theater. This week we’ve got a new documentary, a creepy midnight and Trivia Night!

The Imposter Imposes

New to Nitehawk this week is the docu-thriller The Imposter, Bart Layton’s documentary about a Frenchman who convinces a Texas family that he is their long lost son. Opens Friday for nightly showings- Get Cha Tickets

Delinquent Midnight

Based on a chilling true story, River’s Edge is this week’s After School Detention pick, and considering it’s all murder, cover-ups and drug use for this group of kids we’d say after school detention is a pretty lax punishment. Friday and Saturday at Midnight. Tickets

Spoons, Toons & Booze – After Dark

Breaking away from their Saturday Morning fair, STB is making you stay up past your bed time to watch the cartoons mom & dad tried to keep from your fragile little minds. On top of the cereal and the drink specials, we’ll be screening episodes of Beavis and Butt-head, Archer, South Park, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, and many more. There had better be Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast on that list, or there are going to be words. Saturday and Sunday at Noon – Tickets

New York Surf Festival

This Wednesday and Thursday Nitehawk will be hosting the Fifth Annual New York Surf Film Festival. The program is loaded with shorts and features with Q&A’s with filmmakers and surfers after the screenings. There are loads of them. Check out the Tickets page for details on each and get ready to gleam the cube! … Wait, that’s skateboarding. I know very little about surfing.

It’s only Trivia, so don’t freak out.

We are extremely excited to throw our hat into the Trivia Game night ring with an All Movie Trivia Night this Tuesday at 7:30. Settle in for four rounds of easy to not-so-easy questions about our favorite medium. There will be drink specials, a round of Build-a-Title and a prize bag for the winner. Entry is $1 per person, doing well is not guaranteed.
