brian-de-palmaIn 2013 Nitehawk will be launching new Signature Series programming. We already have our Country Brunchin’ and Live Sound Cinema but this April we’ll have music and art focused monthly screenings as well boundary pushing midnites. One you won’t have to wait for it our extended series called THE WORKS. Launching this month, our first feature in THE WORKS is director Brian De Palma.

The Works pays special attention and homage to the people and concepts who inspire a closer look. As Nitehawk’s extended series, The Works highlights a director, actor, composer, genre, or influencer on select midnight screenings over a three-month period. Our first in the series is BRIAN DE PALMA.
