WEDNESDAY AUGUST 16, 2017 |   Pre-screening performance begins at 7PM, Film begins at sundown

Romance & Cigarettes (USA)
Directed by John Turturro; 2005, 115 min.

We are thrilled to announce that the film’s director – John Turturro – will join us at Socrates Sculpture Park to introduce his film! 

Details:  Actor extraordinaire John Turturro directs a down-and-dirty (leave the kids at home) musical love-hate story. James Gandolfini stars as Nick Murder, a Queens construction worker and family man, who lusts after an oversexed lingerie clerk (Kate Winslet) as his seething wife (Susan Sarandon) goes on the warpath, enlisting the aid of her Elvis-wannabe cousin (Christopher Walken). Steve Buscemi plays his best friend – with hilarious cameos by Mary-Louise Parker, Aida Turturro, Bobby Cannavale, Eddie Izzard, and Elaine Stritch.

Enjoy pre-screening experimental rock music from Pat Irwin & J. Walter Hawkes and dine on classic American comfort food from Astoria-based restaurant, East Coast Foodies. John Turturro will begin his introduction at dusk.
