Tuesday's parting shots

Oscar nominations were announced this morning... and, FWIW, several of those films are playing at the Village East by Angelika on Second Avenue at 12th Street... where three of the EVG f2022 avorites are — "Tár," "Aftersun" and "Decision to Leave" ...
Somehow, "Decision to Leave" wasn't nominated in a single category. Also, the Academy didn't nominate any women directors despite plenty of worthy films. (See Sarah Polley, "Women Talking" ... Gina Prince-Bythewood, "The Woman King" ... and Charlotte Wells, "Aftersun," among others.)

At the movies

Two of EVG's favorite 2022 films — "Decision to Leave" and "Aftersun" — are now both playing at Village East by Angelika on Second Avenue at 12th Street. (With an assist by EV Arrow.) 

Meanwhile, on the fence about "Bones & All."

Wednesday's parting shot

The Wednesday evening Hitchcocktober screenings wrapped up tonight at Village East by Angelika with the spy thriller "Saboteur." 

Coming Halloween night: "Psycho." The 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. showings are either sold out or close to it... so the theater added screenings at 6 and 7 p.m. (There's also one at 4:30 p.m.) You can find ticket info here

The Village East by Angelika is on Second Avenue at 12th Street.

This week at the Village East: 'Goodfellas,' George Michael, Stanley Kubrick and Elvis

Top photo yesterday by Steven 

The Village East is back in action (as of last evening) after 11 days of screenings for the Tribeca Festival. 

The theater (Village East by Angelika) on 12th Street and Second Avenue closed after the business day on June 5 to prep for the festival... and the blank marquee that night prompted a few closure queries...
You can see "Goodfellas" and "George Michael Freedom Uncut" this week... not to mention a Stanley Kubrick retrospective. Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis" opens Thursday. And "The Duke," a pleasant caper, moves over here on Friday after a run at the Angelika mothership on Houston. There are other films too.

It's nearly show time as NYC theaters prep for reopening

After being dark for nearly a year, movie theaters in NYC are permitted to reopen tomorrow at 25-percent capacity. 

However, don't expect to see all of the local movie houses up and running right away. 

Here's what to expect, starting with the Village East Cinema on Second Avenue at 12th Street (marquee photo above by Doug) ... which will have a new name... Before the pandemic, the Village East Cinema showed movies that originally opened at the Angelika Film Center. Plus, the Village East Cinema is owned by City Cinemas, a branch of Reading International. The Angelika is also under the Reading International umbrella. So they're keeping it all in the Reading family.
