The slow season continues with a torpid Wednesday—we really ought to have just taken the week off! Instead, we’ll take the day off and enjoy the luxurious air-conditioning and chemically buttered popcorn—but nothing at the multiplex is appealing. We’re originalists when it comes to both Batman and Total Recall—give us nippled rubber suits, Arnold Schwarzenegger and camp, or give us repertory cinema instead! Off to BAM we go, where they’re playing a double feature of W.C. Fields classics, Million Dollar Legs and The Bank Dick. Those who prefer something a bit less homespun and a bit more summer-movie can see the French action picture Point Blank at MoMA, part of the Gaumont Thrillers exhibition.
BAM Rose Cinemas, 30 Lafayette Avenue (Brooklyn), W.C. Fields double feature shows at 6:30pm and 9:15pm, tickets and information can be found at bam.org; MoMA, Point Blank screens at 4:30pm.
