Details

Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Monday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Merry Monday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!

See you at the movies!

Please confirm film time the day of the show. The theater frequently changes showtimes.

GIMME THE LOOT

Malcolm and Sofia, two determined teens from the Bronx, are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang buffs their latest masterpiece, they must hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic NYC landmark, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. Over the course of two whirlwind, sun-soaked summer days, Malcolm and Sofia travel on an epic urban adventure involving black market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high wire heist, and a beautiful, rich girl's necklace that is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the City.

Director: Adam Leon Country: USA Genre: Crime | Drama Year: 2013 Run Time: 01:19:22 imdb Score: 6.6/10 (339 votes) Language: English Rating: Not Rated Cast: Ty Hickson, Zoë Lescaze, Joshua Rivera "Tashiana Washington and Ty Hickson are terrific in the main roles. So is Zoë Lescaze as Ginnie, a spoiled white kid who teaches the taggers a thing or two about drift and being dissolute."
Joe Morgersten - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Adam Leon has created something unique and current, with affectionate nods to New York films of the past. The soundtrack is superb, filled with doo-wop and R&B numbers that soar with nostalgia for a time gone by. His young cast inhabits the world of the film like a well-worn pair of sneakers. Gimme the Loot is successful on every level, and won the Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW. "
Sheila O Malley - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"These two trash-talkin’ Picassos may or may not end up getting their due, but Leon and his two extraordinary actors (especially Washington) have already put us squarely on the side of the beautiful losers regardless."
David Fear - TIME OUT NEW YORK
