NYC local theaters are continuing with their generous holiday spirit this weekend with screenings from the Coen Brothers, Pollack, and Spielberg.
Friday, December 27th
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Bridges, Buscemi, and Goodman defined bromance in the Coen brothers' bowling buddy epic. After Fargo, the Coens stepped back to their hard literary roots and churned out this Raymond Chandler-inspired, tripped-out masterpiece.
Die Hard (1988)
Christmas might be over, but it's never too late for some John McClane action. Catch this midnight screening and reminisce back to when Bruce Willis had hair. Note, those muscles haven't changed much at all.
Saturday, December 28th
The Way We Were (1973)
Part of the ongoing series, The Way He Was: Early Redford, in honor of his gripping performance in All is Lost. Redford and Barbara Streisand have captivating chemistry between them in this unconventional love story from Sydney Pollack, fresh out of the New Hollywood era of the seventies.
Sunday, December 29th
The Wizard of Oz (1939)
With two different screenings to choose from—2D and 3D—this special is definitely worth getting up a little earlier for on Sunday morning. It's the classic we love in all of its glory on the big screen, so don't miss out.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Film Society of Lincoln Center
Who said aliens were scary? E.T. showed us that everyone gets homesick, but new friends in new places might just make it all worth it. Get out to Film Society and see this beloved American classic before brunch.
