New York City's premiere resource for classic film screenings in the metropolitan area. Offering reviews, recommendations, venues and a host of links keeping classic film and the silver screens alive.

SEPTEMBER 2012 WEEK THREE! GIALLO BEBEH! CIAO!

SEPTEMBER 2012 WEEK ONE. THE FRENCH OLD WAVE, HOLLYWOOD GAGSTERS, GIALLO FEVER AND CONNERY; SHAKEN NOT STIRRED!

Ya gotta love a town whose repertory screen space devotes equal appreciation to both Renoir and Reiner. That's what ya call thorough.

AUGUST 2012 WEEK THREE. GAUMONT STUDIOS AND THE FRENCH OLD WAVE. NOW GO AWAY BEFORE I TAUNT YOU A SECOND TIME.

So far, so good. The interactive calendar's been up for two weeks now and early reports indicate no one's been seriously hurt. Yet. Instead I've received mostly good response to the new thingamajigger that allows you to click on the day of your choice and check out all the classic film doings on that day, and even scroll further to check out the whole month of goodies. It's just to the right of this blog. Yep, that's it. On yer way. Yer welcome.

AUGUST 2012 WEEK ONE. KINDA. SORTA. HEY, WHAT'S THAT CALENDAR LOOKIN' THING ON THE RIGHT?

Well, it's a calendar is the answer. The one I've been trying to bring you, the adoring public, for a couple of years now, and for this I have Michael Davis, webmaster extraordinaire, to thank. I can now take what previously existed as a collection of notebook scribblings or iPhone calendar entries and make it a united resource that hopefully benefits all socially misfitted film lovers like myself. So hooray would be the appropriate response, fellow geeks! Let me hear ya!

JULY 2012 WEEK FOUR AND A HALF. WHEW!

We're just about ready to premiere the new interactive calendar, so the August sked will have to wait for Wednesday. In the meantime enjoy the last of our flick listings for July, and I hope you attend as many of these screenings as you can! It's still Summer, bastidz! Enjoy!

JULY WEEK FOUR. LET'S GO TO THE MOVIES.

After the events that unfolded at midnight last Thursday it seems really trivial, almost ludicrous, to post my usual weekly blog and a listing of the month's screenings. What are the movies compared to life's horrors? What worth can they possibly have measured against the tragedy that one human may inflict on another, or others? Indeed, it was a movie theater where this awful crime occurred, and no amount of the optimism and enthusiasm we bring with us to the theater was worth a damn in preventing the damage one troubled individual wrought on the filmgoers that night.

JULY WEEK THREE. IT'S HOT. SEE A MOVIE.

These are the months when it gets tricky. The wintertime dreams dancing in the heads of repertory programmers in art houses, museums, rooftops, parks, virtually any space that can be termed a venue come to fruition under the sun's anvil; July.

But the Cinegeek remains a hearty breed. No amount of sweltering sepia will sway him from attending a communal screening of a fave flick. Forgetting to bring his Good-For-1-Free-Popcorn card though, well...

WE AIN'T SUCH DOGS AS WE THINK WE ARE...

Here is the updated July calendar, which gives you the day, week and month in classic film screenings.

There is much going on this Monday July the 9th.

But today? Today remind yourself of all things in Hollywood tough, bashful, gritty, oddball, realistic, both villainous and heroic, and at its best romantic. Hell, remind yourself of all these things existing in the real world.

Catch an Ernie Borgnine flick.

YER JULY 2012 FILM SKED; MOVIES UNDER THE STARS, SUMMER WITH THE KELLYS, AND THE UNIVERSAL CENTURY!

WHASSAP STOCKERS?!?!?

Welcome to something very rare in my life; a second month of anything. So something must be working here, or I just have nothing better to do. You may decide which of the two is more reliable.

Response so far to our efforts has been pretty positive and some of you seem to be getting some use from the website and the Facebook updates, so I'm looking forward to posting further on the classic film skeds primed for your attendance unspooling in our great metropolis and just beyond. Be warned; there's a lot going on this month. This might take some time.

JUNE 2012 WEEK FOUR. HOW IS THIS MONTH OVER ALREADY?

The Film Forum's massive Spaghetti Western fest has screened it's last, and it burns me to type those words, but there's still plenty of great flicks unspooling this week. Even a classic revisionist Western NOT directed by Leone, Corbucci, Damiani, etc, etc...
