Weekend Movie Screenings: 7/25-7/27

mad-max-vault-dwellerPut on your fedoras, grab your gimp suits, and fire up that DeLorean to 88 to prepare for this weekend’s midnight movies. You can head over to Nitehawk Cinema, grab a drink, and choose between Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Dead Man.  Or don’t choose, they’re both playing on Friday and Saturday. 1995’s Dead Man starring Johnny Depp is technically a Western, but saying that it’s a Jim Jarmusch film is a much more helpful descriptor. The film is great and a nice reminder of what Johnny Depp was pre-Pirates, but as it’s playing as part of Nitehawk’s Summer of Surrealism series, be aware that you’re in for restless sleep and probably some weird dreams after. Or you can head over to Road Warrior, part of their July Brunch & Midnite: Burn N’ Rubber series, to see the greatest car movie ever made on the big screen. Plus, you can witness Lord Humungus’s fabulous fashion sense as it was meant to be seen.

TV on the Radio Playing Nitehawk Cinema

On September 7, Nitehawk Cinema will be screening a film presentation of TV on the Radio’s latest album Nine Types of Light.

According to the venue website:

The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types Of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future.

Following the film will be a Q&A session and an intimate live performance by the band.

Unfortunately, tickets to the event just sold out. BUT you can see the entire film below (sans the cool live extras). And don’t forget – TV on the Radio performs with Broken Social Scene at the Williamsburg Waterfront on September 8. Tickets are still available.
