Hooray! The Clinton Street Theater is showing a BRAND NEW 35mm PRINT of Jean-Luc Godard's 1965 gangster meditation, "Pierrot Le Fou." Starring the French ambassador of cool, Jean-Paul Belmondo, and one of the most beautiful women in film ever, Anna Karina, "Pierrot Le Fou" was made in 1965 and was Godard's gateway film from the gangster genre to the future structured chaos of "Weekend."
"Pierrot Le Fou" starts tonight and runs through Jan. 22. $6 admission but on Tuesday...only $4. And if you sign up as an e-mail subscriber you get $1 off any size popcorn. That's your recession-buster tip of the day.
January 19th is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the Clinton St. Theater will be screening "King: A Filmed Record - From Montgomery to Memphis." The 1970 Academy-award nominated documentary features vintage newsreels of MLK and several of his speeches, including "I Have a Dream," uncut. Rare footage of civil rights marches and demonstrations will make this a very special event.
January 20th, come at 8:30 a.m. to watch the Obama inauguration, live on the big screen. Admission: FREE.
