Hey everyone, another week, another round of Nitehawk News. This is going to be a fast one because the staff screening for The Master starts soon and I need to get out of here.
Obey Your Master
Paul Thomas Anderson’s new Scientology-except-not-really-except-yes-really film The Master (Tickets) opens on two screens this week at Nitehawk! Which means we have seen the last of summer standard Moonrise Kingdom. Mike Birbiglia’s wedding woes movie Sleepwalk With Me will be somnambling into Theater 3. Beasts of the Southern Wild hangs on for one more weekend with a pair of midnight screenings.
Late Night De Palma
This week’s midnight movie is Brian De Palma’s Carrie, which we’re screening on 35mm. One of our favorite Stephen King adaptations, Carrie follows a young, telekinetic Carrie White, who gets tormented by a bunch of smarmy asshole teens. The other day I thought I saw this streaming on Netflix Instant, and when I started it I found out, to my horror, that it was the 2002 remake. Don’t let this happen to you. | Tickets.
Le Fooding | Darkness With A Chance of Piperade
Fancy French cooking magazine Le Fooding is working with chefs from all around Brooklyn to bring you this year’s Brooklyn Fling event. For the event, our own Russell Dougherty will be working with a guest chef in our kitchen to bring a special brunch to the people that snatched up tickets. The food will be paired up with two Brooklyn based films, Walter Hill’s The Warriors and John Badham’s Saturday Night Fever. C’est tres Francais.
The event is sold out, which is a bummer if you don’t have tickets, but it’s also taking over the whole theater for our brunch hours this weekend–which means we are not holding normal brunch service this weekend.
Daily Motion Cinema Selects
Daily Motion returns to Nitehawk this Tuesday with another collection digital shorts for you guys to check out. We have a big batch of interviews with the filmmakers to prime you guys, so no excuses when we hand out tests on Tuesday. (We’re not going to do that). Tickets
Sonic Youth Bootlegger
For our second Bootlegger Night in the Cafe, our own Joe Palacios dug up a bootleg Sonic Youth concert video, which we’re throwing on in the cafe along with a $5 beer and shot special. Things get going 9 o’clock on Tuesday.
We’ve moved this week’s VHS Vault pick to Wednesday this week, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love it. This week’s choice to close out our brilliant comedy month is Martin Scorsese’s wildly kinetic things-get-weird-in-New-York film After Hours starring the amazing Griffin Dunne as a sadsack who just wants to get the hell out of SoHo. Starts at 8pm.
That’s it for this week! Hope to see you a–*checks time* … Gotta go.
