The Brooklyn Heights Cinema will be showing 12 Years a Slave, director Steve McQueen’s drama about a free African American New Yorker kidnapped and sold into slavery, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender, and with a cast including Heights resident Paul Giamatti. The Cinema is also showing Robert Redford’s All Is Lost, in which he portrays a solo ocean sailor’s fight for survival after his boat is almost destroyed by a drifting freight container. Showtimes are here. Looking ahead to Wednesday, November 27, at 9:00 p.m. the Cinema will present a stand-up comedy night hosted by Shelly Colman and featuring Angela Cobb, Lawrence DeLoach, Lisa Harmon, and Dean Masello.

This Sunday is your last chance to enjoy Smorgasburg until it returns next year.

Don’t forget the BHA Social! wine and Cognac tasting at Heights Chateau Friday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Also, don’t forget the Danish Christmas Fair on Saturday and Sunday.
