Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

The weekend starts early at Brooklyn Heights Cinema, with two special events tonight (Thursday, October 24). There will be a sneak preview at 9:15 p.m. of Robert Redford’s new solo turn, All is Lost. Before that, starting at 7:30 p.m. there will be a unique artistic event, Now Playing, I and II:

Light artists Gibson + Recoder facilitate a site-specific installation by activating an interactive exercise in “parallel editing” between Brooklyn Heights Cinema’s theaters I & II. Audience participation will be solicited to “edit” and thus “co-produce” this cinematic experiment by creatively connecting simultaneous theaters projecting simultaneous coming attractions NOW PLAYING.

Today at 5:00 p.m. will be your last chance to see Lake Bell’s In a World. Starting Friday and continuing through the weekend and the following week the Cinema will be showing All is Lost and Enough Said.

On Sunday at 1:00-6:00 p.m., the Brooklyn Historical Society will present “‘Surveillance’ Films: UNESCO’s World Day for AV Heritage.” The program includes “rarely seen films including 1960 CIA footage, archival films from Tibetan Envoy Mission (1979), and ‘Les Girls’, Beryl Sokoloff’s look at NY’s streetwalkers (1980).” The event takes place in the Society’s Great Hall, entrance at 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton).
