Walter Reade Theater presents two nights of Aronofsky

After seeing Black Swan, are you curious about Darren Aronofsky's work? Want to see if all his movies are just as psychologically mind-bending? Are you interested in meeting the man himself?

On January 4th and 5th, the Walter Reade Theater will screening several of Aronofsky's work from Pi (1998) to Requiem for a Dream (2000) to The Fountain (2006) to The Wrestler (2008). And if you've never see The Wrestler, you should because you'll get the opportunity to see the man himself (No, not Mickey Rourke). Darren Aronofsky appearing for a post-screening discussion after Wednesday's screening, and will be showing clips from his latest film -- Black Swan.

If you haven't seen Black Swan, see it, and keep a notepad hand if you want to ask Aronofsky questions later. I recommend asking "Did you have nightmares after making this movie?" or "Do you keep looking out of the corner of your eye for strange things you think happen when you're not looking?"

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
