Friday March 31 – Thursday April 6

Featured Film:

After Hours at the Grand Illusion

SAM’s got Yasujiro Ozu’s unimpeachable Early Summer playing on 35mm Thursday night, and the Central Cinema has a fine double feature for our times of Nazi-punching and conspiratorial malevolence with Raiders of the Lost Ark and They Live, but if I’m going to a movie this April Fool’s Day, it’s gotta be Martin Scorsese’s After Hours on 35 at the Grand Illusion. Griffin Dunne plays a mild-mannered office drone who in his more or less innocent quest to just meet a nice girl gets sucked through the looking glass into a nightmarish world of a city that refuses to operate by conventional standards of decency and logic. With Teri Garr, Linda Fiorentino, Rosanna Arquette, Catherine O’Hara and more as the agents of his doom, it’s tremendously fun. One of the great director’s best and most underrated films.
