Bram Stoker's Dracula - Nitehawk Cinema
July 12, 2019 - Brooklyn

Based on Bram Stoker's classic 1897 novel, this film from Francis Ford Coppola and screenwriter James Victor Hart offers a full-blooded portrait of the immortal Transylvanian vampire. The major departure from Stoker is one of motivation as Count Dracula is motivated more by romance than by bloodlust. He punctures the necks as a means of avenging the death of his wife in the 15th century, and when he comes to London, it is specifically to meet heroine Mina Harker, the living image of his late wife.

Femme Fatales - Green-Wood Cemetery
July 13, 2019 - Brooklyn

Many distinguished and noteworthy New Yorkers found their permanent residences at Green-Wood—it was, and still is, the place to be buried. Among them, however, are also those whose reputations are not as admirable, including Fanny White, famed New York City courtesan and brothel manager; Emma Cunningham, who was tried for the murder of Harvey Burdell (who was strangled and stabbed fifteen times) amidst rumors of greed, lust, and depravity; and the Dublin-born Kitty Terry, who ran away to Liverpool at fifteen, where two high-end con men courted her and together formed a romantic triplet. Expert tour guide Ruth Edebohls will share tales of their alleged misdeeds and unscrupulous behavior.

A Bigger Splash - Nitehawk Cinema
July 13, 2019 - Brooklyn

An intimate and innovative film about English-born, often California-based artist David Hockney and his work, honoring its subject through creative risk-taking. Hazan creates an improvisatory narrative-nonfiction hybrid featuring Hockney, a wary participant, as well as his circle of friends, capturing the agonized end of the lingering affair between Hockney and his muse, an American named Peter Schlesinger. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance that dispenses with the then-current narratives of self-hatred and self-pity, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.

My Own Private Idaho - Nitehawk Cinema
July 13, 2019 - Brooklyn

Loosely based on Shakespeare's Henry IV, Parts I and II, the friendship between hustlers Mike and Scott on the streets dreamily unfolds in Van Sant's 1990s classic dramatic independent film. The tough life of living on the streets of Portland, consuming drugs, and selling their bodies has different meanings for Mike and Scott. Mike, gay and narcoleptic, is in constant search of the mother who abandoned him while Scott, not gay and rebellious, is just biding his time before receiving his inheritance. Their personal journey begins as they leave Portland for Idaho, and eventually Italy, in search of Mike's mom.
