Art House Theater Day: Over 160 independent Art House Theaters nationwide including Railroad Square will participate in an exciting celebration of the cultural and community growth that art house theaters promote with a special program of exclusive offerings for our audiences. In an age where media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters remain physical spaces where film lovers can congregate and connect with each other around intrepid, creative filmmaking. Here at Railroad Square, we have a full day of special events for you:
1:00 TIME BANDITS
3:15 HEADING SOUTH
7:30 DANNY SAYS
9:30 DANCE PARTY WITH LOCAL PUNK ROCK COVER BAND: remones reduxed (free admission)
DANNY SAYS: Theatrical premiere of this terrific first-run documentary! Once dubbed the underground “mayor of New York,” Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in the music and culture of the late 20th century, working for The Doors, Cream, Lou Reed, and Nico, and managing groundbreaking artists like The Stooges, MC5 and The Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to “hippie yenta” at Warhol’s Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to punk pioneer and beyond. Led by Fields’ hilariously droll commentary, the film features outrageous anecdotes recounted by Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Judy Collins, Tommy Ramone, Lenny Kaye and many others. They tell the wild story of a man whose taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, turned out to have been prescient. Unrated. 108 Min. To be followed by a Dance Party with local punk rock cover band: remones reduxed! (free admission).
