Reiminders tonight: Films on the Green in Tompkins Square Park

Films on the Green, a free French film festival in NYC parks, is screening the first of two culinary-themed movies in Tompkins Square tonight at 8:30 (or so).

Tonight's screening is "Le Boucher." IMBD describes the 1970 thriller this way: "An unlikely friendship between a dour, working class butcher and a repressed schoolteacher coincides with a grisly series of Ripper-type murders in a provincial French town." (FWIW, this is on Roger Ebert's Great Movies list.)

Before the film, they'll be music via WNYC and (free) cookies from La Mère Poulard.

And playing next Friday, July 13 — "Romantics Anonymous" (or if you want, "Les émotifs anonymes"). Per IMDB: "Romantics Anonymous is a 2010 French-Belgian romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Améris and starring Benoît Poelvoorde and Isabelle Carré."
