THE CONNECTION (1961)—Newly restored version of the debut feature by Shirley Clarke (Portrait of Jason) set in a rundown Manhattan apartment where a group of heroin addicts await the arrival of their dealer. Staring Warren Finnerty, Garry Goodrow, William Redfield, Roscoe Lee Browne, Freddie Redd and Jackie McLean. Hallwalls
LIFEBOAT (1944)—The first and most successful of Alfred Hitchcock’s usually self-defeating experiments in restricting his cinematic canvas. A lifeboat in the Atlantic Ocean holds nine people: eight survivors of a ship torpedoed by a German submarine, and one of the sub’s crewmen. The war propaganda aspect dates it (even Spielberg might consider the Nazi caricature a bit excessive), but it remains interesting as an exercise in style, and a rare chance to see Tallulah Bankhead actually acting. With William Bendix, Walter Slezak and Hume Cronyn. Screening Room
OMBIS: ALIEN INVASION—From Deftone Pictures, the southtowns creators of Black Guy on a Rampage and Final Day and Night, a new sci-fi/horror movie about people turned into monsters by exposure to a meteor. Starring Lynn Lowry, Jason John Beebe, Sarah Manzella and Richard Statterwhite. Directed by Adam R Steigert. Hamburg Palace
PARIS BLUES (1961)—Paul Newman Sidney Poitier as jazz musicians in Paris (miming to performances by Murray McEarchern and Paul Gonsalves) whose dedication to their art is tested by relationships with American tourists Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll. With Louis Armstrong. Directed by Martin Ritt (Hud). Hallwalls.
ROCK SHOW—Digitally restored re-release of the Paul McCartney and Wings concert film from 1976. Screening Room.
