DRAG ME TO HELL at the Village East Cinema

DRAG ME TO HELL

Read the New York Times review

 

Sam Raimi (SPIDER-MAN series) returns to horror, his original genre, to direct DRAG ME TO HELL, a thrilling, darkly comic ride met with much enthusiasm this year at its SXSW midnight screening. Christine (Alison Lohman), a young loan officer competing for a promotion, denies her elderly client (Lorna Raver) a third mortgage extension.

VALENTINO playing at the Angelika NYC

VALENTINO: THE LAST EMPEROR

VALENTINO: THE LAST EMPEROR
Playing at the Angelika NYC starting May 29th. Tickets on sale now.

 

Critics and audiences around the world are raving about this behind-the-scenes look at the life of legendary designer Valentino, and his longtime partner, Giancarlo Giammetti. The film follows these two men for the last two years of their careers, and shows the struggles they face as they confront the final act of a nearly 50-year career at the top of the fashion world. The struggle of art against commerce is at the center of the film. In the end, however, the story proves to be not one about money or expensive clothes, but about love.

 

Q&A with the director following the 7:15pm shows on Friday & Saturday!
