Bartender Becca Brennan Chiappone selects the films. "I try to pick ones that are going to appeal to a big audience, but not a douchey audience," she said via email. "The NYU crowd will always come and go, but I want to keep the regulars happy. They've been coming to the bar for years now and they're all fascinating and intelligent people, so I try to show films that reflect the personality of the bar and the East Village."
In recent months, she has shown "Blue Velvet," "The Road Warrior" and "Lolita."
Tonight! It's "The Hunger," starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon
