Film This Week: Ice-Cold Club Kids, Xmas Horror, and Rare Glimpses of Vaudeville

Sup guys? Darkness reigns right now, so instead of pining away for the sun when it sets just two hours after freaking lunch, forget about it. Embrace the season of death by spending it far, far away from things that are a reminder you’re stuck on planet Earth till (real) death do y’all part. The best way to do that, in our opinion, is to get to a cinema theater.

‘John’s of 12th Street’ Portrays Restaurant Life Sans Gordon Ramsay Hissy Fits

Last month during a taping of Knight Fight at The Gorbals, chef Ilan Hall faced off against Northern Spy Food Co.’s Pete Lipson. In the dining room above the Urban Outfitters store, feverish foodies ooed and ahead on cue as Hall revealed the night’s mystery ingredients. I can’t tell you more, because immediately upon arriving at the taping I beat a hasty retreat to Space Ninety 8’s rooftop bar where I hid out for the rest of the night.

Kurt Russell Rocks An Eyepatch, Tommy Wiseau IRL, Get Freaky With Danish Vampyrs

It’s that time of the week again, y’all. Here’s a list of a moving pictures we’re excited to see.


Escape From New York
This is early ’80s sci-fi action at its finest. It’s the year 1997 and New York City is a police state (sounds familiar), but rather than shipping criminals to Rikers Island, the island of Manhattan has been converted into a maximum security prison where violence reigns. The probably named Snake Plissken (played by a mostly shirtless Kurt Russell) is not only working to bring back eyepatches, but he’s also on a reconnaissance mission to save the President after Air Force One crashes in the middle of Manhattan. Friday September 26th and Saturday September 27th at 12:20 am, IFC Center; tickets, $14

J Franks Is At It Again, East German Westerns, And ’60s Afronauts

Check out the flicks we’re Reel Psyched to see this week.


Kink
Oh boy, get ready for this one: Franco combines his passion for porn and documentary as the producer of Kink– which takes us behind the scenes at Kink.com, “the Internet’s largest producer of BDSM content.” Apparently the film does a good deal of cheerleading for Kink.com, which is a relatively open and “normal” operation compared to the rest of the fetish industry. J Franks himself will be on site and ready for an audience Q+A  after Friday’s 9:55 pm screening. Friday August 22nd through Tuesday August 26 at IFC Center, 323 6th avenue; tickets, $14

Roll Up For the ‘Magical Mystery Tour,’ Get ‘Dazed and Confused’

These upcoming screenings, q&as, and open cereal bars have us Reel Psyched.

It was on this day 45 years ago that the Beatles moved into the Apple Records headquarters in London, where a huge chunk of “Let It Be” was recorded and where their last-ever rooftop performance was held.

So why not celebrate like a true fan and head on over to Boulevard Tavern for a screening of their debut film “The Magical Mystery Tour”? We know the film has no direct connection to the Apple headquarters (other then it being the Beatles), but maybe you wanted an excuse to drink $6 martinis, indulge in a $5 all-you-can-eat BBQ and watch a free Beatles movie at 11 p.m. on a Monday. Now you have one.
