Aside from the new releases of Bullet Train, The Invitation, and Beast, we here at FIU Film Studies invite you to explore your options outside of the mainstream circuit. Here’s what we have on our radar from now until September 20:

  • It’s important to think about not just what movie you choose to watch, but how you’re going to watch it. If you’re looking for something different, check out Nite Owl Drive-In located near the Adrienne Arsht Center for a unique movie-watching experience. On select days, the drive-in will be playing double-features of Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: No Way Home alongside movies like Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the 1984 classic Ghostbusters. With each ticket purchased movie-goers have a voucher to buy popcorn, soda, or candy from their on-site concession stand.
  • In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Coral Gables Art Cinema will be playing David Lynch’s 1997 film Lost Highway. Lynch’s surreal and mysterious film matches the cinema’s other showing of Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard on September 17th. Released in 1950, the film has been revered as a classic Hollywood film that is equal parts glitz and drama. The cinema’s After Hours events aim to present classic or cult-favorite films to late-night movie goers.
  • Alongside these re-releases, AMC Theaters will also be premiering a string of new films on September 16th, from the David Bowie documentary Moonage Daydream, to A24’s sequel Pearl. Whatever you choose, just remember to attend Tuesday screenings as tickets are only $5 a person.
