MON ONCLE by Jacques Tati

on Wed, 03/30/2011 - 21:56

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)

BLOW UP by Michelangelo Antonioni

Dear Rabbit fans,
this week we are turning to Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni and his Swinging London masterpiece BLOWUP. Using the 60's world of mod fashion as a backdrop for his murder mystery plot, Antonioni examines the existential nature of reality through photography, as well as defies Hollywood puritanism with some of the sexiest cinematic scenes of its time.

For a cozy evening of BYOB on the couches...
come to our FREE screenings!

SHADOWS by John Cassavetes

on Wed, 03/09/2011 - 21:56

This week at Rabbit!
we are screening a landmark movie that inspired the birth of American independent films, John Cassavetes' first, SHADOWS. Shot in the late 50s in Harlem, with handheld camera and semi-improvised dialogue, it breathes the themes of the Beat Generation jazz and touches realistically the subject of interracial relationships, still very taboo at the time. 

As an homage to our dear city! Come cozy up in the couches for a evening of drinks and authentic NYC jazz.

opens at 8 (movie starts around 8:30)
