I've never seen a movie there myself, but I remember a couple other posters on this forum mentioning that they had significant problems with the sound there. Specifically, I remember mfunk talking about how he couldn't understand much of Inherent Vice's dialogue at its premiere and hearthesilence mentioning that they had (or may have had, they/I wasn't certain) similar trouble with The Other Side Of The Wind.

Dropping $75 a ticket for a gala screening of Inherent Vice there was sort of like ordering the porterhouse at Olive Garden.

If you're hard of hearing or even just concerned about being able to hear the film, they're almost certain to have accessibility devices for hard of hearing patrons if you call ahead and ask. Not sure if the fact that they're festival premiers might impact that or not. Also might just depend on where you're sitting in the theater, only been there once.

Film Forum Winter programming. Some real cool things in there, including the great news that some of the Kino Hungarian acquisitions will begin trickling out (I know My 20th Century’s happening too but that one’s already been available elsewhere)

I was given a heads up by one of the programmers that they were doing a Romanian Retrospective. It’s great to see it officially programmed. The Scorsese documentaries being screened is wonderful too. And Alec Guinness at Ealing. Terrific winter calendar

Most psyched to see MEPHISTO again, and hopes are raised for a Blu-Ray to follow.

There is a blu-ray to follow, also for Colonel Redl. Hanussen is the one that still remains elusive.

The Philadelphia Story (which I've never seen, believe it or not) is screening at the United Palace Theater in The Heights on Monday, Feb. 10. Been living in Washington Heights for years; walked past this historic building a million times but have never been in it. Not a bad idea for a visit. Just wish they had more than 4 or 5 film screenings a year!

Glad they're still operating. Last time I was out there they had a Mizoguchi retrospective which I couldn't miss. Winter calender looks interesting. Thanks.

Daniel Craig is presenting a screening of Casino Royale at MoMA tonight to kick off a retrospective of his films. Sold out but there will be standby tickets.

Sorry I missed this, but Nicolas Cage is doing Q&A's at the Roxy tonight. They've been screening many of his films this past month in 35mm.

Was he doing Q&A's before, or were they just screening his films? Regardless, it's impressive the Roxy has put together a theater of this caliber when it's primarily a hotel looking for something to fill its basement.

It's a weird ass theater. I saw Raising Arizona over two months ago in 35, and there was at least a month before that of showing his films. They've done at least a full quarter of being Nicolas Cage programming! I went to see Bringing Out the Dead last month, but they said it wouldn't be starting until 30 minutes after it was supposed to because of a private event in the bar. Theater is fine and they've definitely had wild programming over the last year (Bertolucci films in 35!) but it's still such an odd place.

pretty much every arts/cultural institution in NYC is shutting down through at least the end of March (Broadway theaters through April 12)

Roxy Cinema has posted video from one of their Nicolas Cage Q&A's and it's quite good.

Anthology Film Archives is kicking off a 50th Anniversary celebration, though the roll-out is off to a very modest start due to the pandemic:

"To celebrate Anthology Film Archives’ 50th Anniversary, we’ve been reaching out to filmmakers, artists, scholars, and others to bear witness to Anthology’s value – to the influence AFA has had on their own work, its significance within the history of avant-garde cinema and art, and its place in the sphere of contemporary culture in NYC and beyond. These testimonials have taken the form of short videos – some comprising newly produced short films in their own right – which we’re sharing on Vimeo and elsewhere. We’ll continue to gather and share these testimonials throughout the rest of the year, and into 2021 (and hopefully these celebrations will culminate with in-person events when circumstances allow)! For more info about the anniversary visit this page and to learn about and support Anthology’s expansion project – the next phase in our history – visit this page."
