When a friend tells me, “Oh hey, a movie theater just opened underneath my apartment,” and that apartment is on South 3rd and Bedford, my interest is piqued. The Spectacle is a not-for-profit theater that’s been open for just under a month and they’re focusing on “rare films and live theater.” Their October schedule includes Louis Malle’s Black Moon and Philip Ridley’s hard to find The Reflecting Skin, starring Viggo Mortensen. All movies are $5 and the menu is simple: popcorn and beer. Thanks to Spectacle and the recent opening of IndieScreen, residents of Williamsburg are receiving some unique and much-needed moviegoing options.
From their website:
Spectacle Theater is a not-for-profit independent theater in Willamsburg, Brooklyn. We show hard-to-find, out of print, and rare independent, foreign and locally made films, as well as lectures, performance arts, and panel discussions. At the end of every month, we put on performances from Dome Theater.
A trailer for The Reflecting Skin is after the jump.
