Halloween Extravaganza

Join us tomorrow for this year's Halloween event!  We'll be screening The Shining on blu-ray, so you know it's going to be awesome.  In addition to that, we're having a costume contest-- but you can only dress up as a movie (or TV) character.  The winner will receive a gift certificate to Film Forum.

Food and beverages will be provided as always, so bring a friend and an awesome costume. :)

"City of God" Screening tomorrow night

Hey everyone!  Come tomorrow night for our screening of "City of God," a great Brazilian film about violence and the growth of organized crime in the Rio de Janeiro neighborhood, and the diverging lives of two boys from the area.  We'll have snacks as usual so it should be a fun night.  Come early for better seats (and to help us set up).  Hope to see you there!

So another double screening huh? Why I tell you those cotton picking Brooklyn College kids want to show our movie so they can laugh at us. I don't find that funny at all John. LOL. That might be one of the conversations that you hear spurring up from the classic Grumpy Old Men

But we would have to remind them that our reason for watching them on the big screen this week is because they fit the bill to lighten up the mood after we watch the chilling horror flick "No Country For Old Men".
I don't know about you all but this year hear working with the BC Film Society has been a memorable one already. I mean we had great turnouts for two screenings so far and I know it can only get better. The best part about this whole process is that the fans requested it and we are bringing it to them. Every top pick on the survey you all generated is being shown. So you owe it all to yourselves to show up this Friday Oct. 16th in RM 214 at 6:30pm to see these two dynamic movies.

Oh yeah and give us some feedback on this blog or the forum or FB page. We are open to suggestions and are still eager to hear from you.

"Fight Club" screening

Last week we held our first (double) screening of the semester and it was pretty packed!  It looks like everyone had fun whether they came for the first movie or the second (or stayed for both), so let's mark that down as a success. :)

This week we're screening "Fight Club," one of the most popular suggestions on the movie survey Darin made.  The film is about an office employee and a soap salesman who build a global organization to help vent male aggression as a response to the American culture of consumerism.  A David Fincher adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel, it has attained cult status and marked a cinematic turning point in the transition from the 90s to the 2000s.

So come on down- it'll be a lot of fun!  As always food and drinks will be provided. :)

And speaking of David Fincher, apparently he's directing a movie about Facebook?  Whaaaaat?  Will there be a sequel about Twitter?  A prequel about Myspace?
