An ill-tempered Brooklyn man is told he has 90 minutes to live, and then stuff happens. It’s hardly an original story, yet I can’t help but be lured by the impressive cast. Robin Williams. Mila Kunis. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion!). Richard Kind. Melissa Leo. James Earl Jones. Hamish Linklater. (I’m kind of a sucker for Hamish.) Add my adopted home of Brooklyn on top of it and this looks to be a fun ride, coming to theatres May 23rd.
I love movie palaces, and this summer one will be coming back to my beloved Brooklyn. The current Harvey Theater at the Brooklyn Academy of Music—a performing arts theatre—was the Majestic Theater, a movie palace and vaudeville theatre, more than a century ago. This summer, a new, state-of-the-art screen will be added to the Harvey, bringing it back to its movie palace roots. Currently being used as part of BAMcinemaFest, the theatre will also host epic film screenings and more. It’s going to be a sweet summer in Brooklyn!
