Dear Rabbit fans, this week we are screening the melodramatic soviet musical 'Circus', one of the many musicals produced under the propagandist Stalin cinema era - which was meant to alleviate the hardship of soviet life under his power - directed by Grigori Aleksandrov. Made in 1936, this film has become a Russian classic starring the beloved actress/singer Lyubov Orlova (equivalent to Marlene Dietrich in Russia).
Hope you can make it for this cinematic gem!
It's FREE and we now serve beers and wine at our screenings (but to BYOB is still welcomed)

These are always highly intriguing and energetic shows and we encourage you to check it out this month, amidst the sprawl of venues in and around DUMBO the weekend of May 11-15.

Dear Rabbit Fans! this week we are heading to Brazil with the exquisite 'Orfeu Negro' by French Director Marcel Camus. The 1959 Cannes Festival's Grand Prize Winner is famous for bringing to life the new samba style of the time, today known as 'Bossa Nova'. Along side the colorful scenes of Carnival in Rio and the adapted greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, the soundtrack has since become an all-time classic.
Looking forward to wednesday! Event opens at 8pm (movie starts around 8:30) FREE and BYOB!
This week at Rabbit, we are screening Jacques Tati's comedic masterpiece where dialogue is replaced by visual whimsy and where the absurdist basis of modern consumerist culture of the 50's plays the main character. Tati is comparable to the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, and "MON ONCLE" is Tati's first movie in color and arguably his best work supported by many awards and honors.
Come join us with some drinks and comfy couches! Opens at 8pm (the movie usually starts at 8:30)
