CHICAGO – If you can remember the 1990s outside of childhood, you are in the glow of middle age, so congratulations. The Brown Paper Box Co. theater ensemble takes us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear with “Spike Heels,” a relationship comedy centering on the co-mingling antics of two couples, with a slight nod toward George Bernard Shaw and the play “Pygmalion” (or its musical counterpart, “My Fair Lady”).
‘There Will Be Blood’ to Sneak Into 14 Cities on Dec. 29 at Midnight
Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” is hand’s down one of the best films of 2007. The film stars an Oscar-worthy performance by a “Gangs of New York”-reminiscent Daniel Day-Lewis.
Unfortunately, the film will only open in limited New York City and Los Angeles theaters on Dec. 26 and will expand in Jan. 2008. Fortunately, 14 cities are being treated to a midnight sneak screening on Dec. 29.
The lucky ones are Austin, Boston (AMC Loews Boston Common 19), Chicago (AMC River East 21), Dallas, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis (Lagoon Cinema), Philadelphia, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto and Washington, D.C.
Tickets are already on sale for some of these cities. The director cut the following special video to announce the screenings, which I’ve uploaded to YouTube.
