DRIVE screening on Friday 7/5 & Saturday 7/6
Because one night isn't enough, we'll be screening Nicolas Winding Refn's acclaimed crime thriller DRIVE on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6.
A mysterious Hollywood stuntman, mechanic and getaway driver lands himself in trouble when he helps out his neighbor.
Drive is a unique beast in that its focus is not on high-octane action scenes, but in creating fascinating characters with complex motivations. Refn's film is an antidote to testosterone-fueled, hollow action movies we've been expected to endure since the mid-90's. Stylistically, it shares more with the gritty 70's than today's hyperreal landscape of CG car chases and explosions. At its core is a bittersweet love story shared between two star-crossed individuals, portrayed by Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. Also stars Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman as ruthless gangsters looking to put the driver's skills to good use.
Screens at midnight on both nights.
