This week we’ll be hanging on to the same films as last week, but there’s a lot of them. Silver Linings Playbook (Tickets) continues in Theater 1 with Killing Them Softly (Tickets) downstairs in 2. Theater 3 is split between three movies, with Looper (Tickets) showing twice and The Sessions (Tickets) and Seven Psychopaths (Tickets) each getting a screening.
Late, Loud and Live at Midnight
We have two midnight movies this week, the first is a second go-round of Morricone Youth’s excellent live-score for silent era animated classic Prince Achmed (Tickets). Our other midnight is a little less… well… classy. Drafthouse Films has put together a collection of some of the wildest, weirdest, sexiest and most insane B-Movie trailers of all time with Trailer War (Tickets). Both films play Friday and Saturday (Dec 7 and Dec 8) at midnight.
For Brunch this weekend we’re screening the ultimate Christmas classic: John McTiernan’s Die Hard (Tickets). If tinsel and cocoa puffs are more your game, we also have Spoons Toons and Booze (Tickets) this weekend, which is shaping up to be a Christmas spectacular, loaded with your favorite Saturday Morning Christmas yarns.
One Night Only: Paul Williams Still Alive
On Tuesday, December 11th at 7:30pm, we’ll be hosting Noisey Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro and singer-songwriter Paul Williams himself for a screening of Paul Williams Still Alive (Tickets), with a Q&A to follow. Along with hits like “Old Fashioned Love Song” and “Only Just Begun,” Williams also wrote the music for The Muppet Movie and Phantom of the Paradise.
