This April, we’re saying yes to drugs at midnite with our Just Say Yes series and then playing some baseball in the morning with Play Ball 2, our second all-baseball series. Drugs and baseball: two pretty solid ways to spend a Spring day.

We also have a whole bunch of great looking first run films slated, as well as a return of some good, old fashioned silver screen pornography. Keep on scrolling for a full list of what we have planned. So listen to this, and scroll on.

baseketball

BASEketball (1998, David Zucker)
Wednesday, April 2; 9:30pm | Buy Tickets
A derpy team-up from Airplane! and Naked Gun director David Zucker and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, BASEketball is, for all intents and purposes, a remarkably stupid movie. It’s base and trashy, there are more dick jokes than you can count, and they say “dude” 98 times over the course of the movie. These are not digs at the movie, these are the reasons that BASEketball is kind of awesome.

Opens Friday, April 4 | Buy Tickets

scarface

Scarface (1983, Brian De Palma)
Friday, April 4 & Saturday, April 5; Midnite | Buy Tickets
Insane murderer, Tony Montana, is one of those dudes that you really shouldn’t like, but do anyway because he’s such a baller. He may be ruthless and paranoid and he may make his fortune shilling narcotics, but, man, that Porsche? Guy’s got style.

evil

Evil Come, Evil Go (1972, Walt Davis)
Friday, April 4 & Saturday, April 5; Midnite | Buy Tickets
The second installment of our extra naughty Nitehawk Naughties series is Evil Come, Evil GoAn X-rated feature from 1972, Evil Come, Evil Go chronicles the exploits of a marauding preacher-woman who murders people who engage in the sinful act of lovemaking. It’s kind of like a porny slasher movie.

league

A League of Their Own (1992, Penny Marshall)
Saturday, April 5 & Sunday, April 6; Brunch | Buy Tickets
The only repeat performance from last-year’s starting line-up of Baseball flicks. Come for the crying, stay for Madonna looking like she just finished playing a pick-up game in Bushwick.

mastersouni

Masters of the Universe (1987, Gary Goddard)
Saturday, April 5 & Sunday, April 6; Brunch | Buy Tickets
We’re screening the He-Man movie on 35mm, because Hell yeah we are! Masters of the Universe came from the the Cannon Group, the amazing, cheap-o production company responsible for top-shelf 80’s sleaze like Cobra, Missing in Action and all of the Death Wish sequels. They dubbed Masters of the Universe “The Star Wars of the 80’s,” which is such a hilariously ballsy thing to say about your He-Man movie. The Cannon Group rules, you guys.

robocop

Robocop (1987, Paul Verhoeven)
Tuesday, April 8; 9:30pm | Buy Tickets
Paul Verhoeven’s unimpeachable masterpiece, Robocop, returns to Nitehawk for a single night of busting bad guys and running over mutants. It’s the Robocop America deserves.

anchor

Film Feast: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004, Adam McKay)
Wednesday, April 9; 7:15pm | Buy Tickets
This month’s Film Feast takes a lighter turn this month. We’ve teamed up with San Diego brewery Green Flash for a four-course food and drink meal that’s been paired to the exploits of San Diego’s classiest TV newsman: Ron Burgundy. You won’t get any scotch, but you will get a scotch egg, which — to me — is a way better offer.

vigilante

The Deuce: Vigilante (1983, William Lustig)
Thursday, April 10; 9:30pm | Buy Tickets
Our ongoing tribute to the seedy movie palaces that once lined 42nd Street, The Deuce, marches on with William Lustig’s Vigilante. A movie in the Death Wish/Rolling Thunder school of head busting, Vigilante features several scenes filmed in an unrecognizable Williamsburg and stars Robert Forster in the vengeful, angry father role. Along with drink specials and prizes, Bill Lustig will be joining us for the screening as well. Free admission with lead pipe.

train

Trainspotting (1996, Danny Boyle)
Friday, April 11 & Saturday, April 12; Midnite | Buy Tickets
Life becomes a bit of a dodgy game when you opt for what’s behind the mystery curtain (it’s heroin!). Super skinny addict Renton acts as our tour guide in Trainspotting, taking us through all of the highs and lows of his life as an addict. The lows tend to be the parts that stick with you, but Renton tells his story with such energy that it’s easy to get sucked into his world.

field

Field of Dreams (1989, Phil Alden Robinson)
Saturday, April 12 & Sunday, April 13; Brunch | Buy Tickets
Is it really that crazy to build a baseball field on your property? I have a friend who has a baseball field on his property, and I don’t think that’s weird. He doesn’t say anything about the ghosts of the 1919 White Sox playing on it, so maybe that’s what makes it seem kind of normal.

reality

Reality Bites (1994, Ben Stiller)
Saturday, April 12 & Sunday, April 13; Brunch | Buy Tickets
Reality Bites turns 20 years old this year, which would make all of the characters about… 43 now. How’s that for reality?

drugstore

Drugstore Cowboy (1989, Gus Van Sant)
Friday, April 18 & Saturday, April 19; Midnite | Buy Tickets
Gus Van Sant’s debut follows a pill-popping, drug addled quartet as they travel about the Pacific Northwest knocking off drug stores to keep their habit going. Things go pretty well for a while, but, like most movies about drug users, things go south as habit turns to addiction. The film also features a couple of choice rants from William S. Burroughs about drug hysteria

afterdark

Spoons, Toons and Booze
Saturday, April 19 & Sunday, April 20; Brunch | Buy Tickets
Okay, what things do you always need in life? You need cereal (we’ve got that), you need cartoons (uh huh, in a movie theater, right) and you need alcohol (yes!). Yep, you should be covered.

steal

The Art of the Steal (2009, Don Argott)
Saturday, April 19 & Sunday, April 20; Brunch | Buy Tickets
Everyone thinks of art and art culture as being so civilized; but when $25 billion worth of anything is up for grabs, some shady dealings are inevitable. Following up on our February presentation of The Rape of Europa, Art Seen presents an unmissable look at one of the art world’s most fascinating controversies in The Art of the Steal.

925

Nine to Five (1980, Colin Higgins)
Wednesday, April 23; 9:30pm | Buy Tickets
Usually I use this space to wax nonsense about these movies, but this event is kind of stacked, so I’m going to jump to it: We’ve teamed up with Brightest Young Things for a Secretary’s Day screening of Nine to Five, featuring: a live set from Dolly Parton tribute band The Doll Parts, and free martinis before the movie thanks to New York Distilling Company. What a way to make a living.

fantastic

Live + Sound + Cinema: Fantastic Planet (1973, Rene Laloux)
Friday, April 25 & Saturday, April 26; Midnite | Buy Tickets
De-facto Nitehawk House band, Morricone Youth, returns to supply a live score to Rene Laloux’s way-way out there animated fable: Fantastic Planet. It’s part of our Just Say Yes program because… I mean, look at it. (Also because the aliens do crazy drugs in it)

lebowski

The Big Lebowski (1998, Joel and Ethan Coen)
Friday, April 25 & Sunday April 26; Brunch| Buy Tickets
What does Philip Marlowe got that The Dude doesn’t? The Dude solves convoluted mysteries. The Dude rolls a mean game (at least, I guess he does). The Dude macks on all kinds of ladies. If anything, The Dude is a better detective than all of those monochrome dicks. Those guys were were in it for the money and the dames, The Dude just wants his rug back.

major

Major League (1989, David S. Ward)
Saturday, April 26 & Sunday, April 27; Brunch | Buy Tickets
The movie single-handedly responsible for my third grade self getting sent to the principal’s office for saying “Up your butt, Jobu” to someone in front of my English teacher.

shadow

Vice & Film Foundation Screening Series: Shadow of a Doubt (1943, Alfred Hitchcock)
Tuesday, April 29; 9:30pm | Buy Tickets
In Shadow of a Doubt, everyone is thrilled when marauding Uncle Charlie finally returns home to his family, especially his niece young niece, who’s named after him.
