After an eight-month intermission, reRun Theater reopens tomorrow night.

Located inside reBar gastropub, reRun debuted in July 2009 as Dumbo’s take on a drive-in (more duck fat popcorn, less exhaust fumes). The audience watches a 12-foot screen from 47 minivan seats from a Staten Island junkyard. Open to a 21-and-over crowd, reRun sells draft beer, wine, liquor, and cinema-themed cocktails. Drinks start at $5, and each person’s first drink is half-price.

It’s not all that often that church pews double as theater aisles at The Bowery Mission’s Lower East Side Chapel but that’s what happened today, as local homeless men sought refuge from the single-digit temperatures.

Staffers set the thermostat above 70 degrees and unspooled a projection screen to show DVDs of The Bible, a 10-part miniseries that aired on the History channel last March. (The Blind Side was screened during a previous film session.) A few dozen men wearing hooded sweatshirts and nylon jackets watched stories of Jesus, Moses and Sampson before a backdrop of Christmas tree garland and organ pipes.
