After a long week at work, one of the things I look forward to most on the weekend is attending a midnight movie. The best spots for midnight movies in New York City today are the Landmark Sunshine Cinema and the IFC Center (the Chelsea Cinema does continue to play The Rocky Horror Picture Show every weekend with the official NYC Rocky Horror shadowcast). In 2013, I didn’t get to attend as many midnight screenings as I had wanted to (largely due to my work schedule). I’m happy to report that only three of the 17 midnight screenings I attended last year were films that I had already seen on the big screen (2001: A Space Odyssey, which I hadn’t seen on the big screen for 10 years; The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which marked the 17th time I’d seen it on the big screen in over a five-year period; and Army of Darkness, which I last saw on the big screen two-and-a-half years before at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema). All 17 films were very enjoyable, and I look forward to continue watching midnight movies in 2014.
