Featured review from Philip M.

This was a fun and very unusual evening hosted by animation expert extraordinaire Jerry Beck. The first half of the show was adult oriented cartoons from the silent era to the present. At intermission everyone filed out to a patio behind the cinema (who knew?) and had cake and free beer! For the 2nd half the director showed up for a screening of perhaps the last existing print of "Down and Dirty Duck", aka "Cheap". This is really esoteric stuff and it was a pleasure to get to see it. The theater is filled with assorted types of chairs and sofas, along with some theater seats, and is comfortable and relaxed.

November 22 and 24, 2013: A Brief History of Time
Errol Morris’ definitive portrait of the legendary Professor Stephen Hawking returns in 35mm! Taking its title from the bestselling book of the same name, this insightful portrait of the theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and superstar Stephen Hawking focuses both on his groundbreaking scientific research, and on the crucial formative years of his extraordinary life. Spielberg recommended Errol Morris (Gates of Heaven, The Thin Blue Line) to direct this adaptation of Hawking’s work, and our galaxy is all the better for it, as few other documentaries have done as much to humanize the mysteries of infinity. Despite being given a brief life expectancy at age 21, Hawking has flourished for a half-century, triumphing over adversity while immortalizing himself in the fields of physics and cosmology with his theories on general relativity and the properties of black holes. Still, Morris finds a humble universality in his subject, illustrating how Hawking’s cool acceptance of the affliction (motor neuron disease) that ravaged his body seemingly re-focused his mind. Moving, inspirational and not yet on DVD.
Stick around after the November 22, 2013 screening for a Q&A with Stephon Alexander, a world-class astrophysicist specializing in cosmology, particle physics and quantum gravity. Q&A moderated by Claire Evans (editor-in-chief, OMNI Reboot.)
November 23, 2013 at 10:30pm: James Ferraro -- NYC, Hell 3:00am
It’s our pleasure to welcome back one of electronic music’s most exciting “avant-OMGarde provocateurs”: James Ferraro. At last year’s Cinefamily Halloween Party, his live score to the ‘80s horror oddity Boardinghouse made us fall in love with his lo-fi, VHS-inspired nightmarish soundscapes. True to his mission of always mixing it up, and heading out in uncharted directions, James’ new multimedia project NYC, Hell 3:00am proves to be his darkest and most mysterious yet. Join us as we breathe in James’ live synth manipulations, which form the heart of this immersive A/V experience.
