The ultimate all-nighter for film junkies—join us for Up All Night @ The Royal, a weekend of cult classics dedicated to the romance, calamity, and adrenaline-fueled hijinks of one-nighters. From such lauded cineastes as Martin Scorsese, Richard Linklater, Jim Jarmusch, and Michael Mann, we’re celebrating those particular films dedicated to one-night narratives, whether they be love at first sight (BEFORE SUNRISE); zany catastrophe (AFTER HOURS); rough and tumble midnight rambles (NIGHT ON EARTH); or neo-noir thrills (COLLATERAL)—including stunning 35mm prints of select titles. Fuel up on 24-hour diner coffee, be prepared to wander the streets bathed in the midnight glow of street lamps, and hail a cab for a twilight ride of mystery, intrigue, comedy, and romance.

First up in Up All Night’s offerings, Martin Scorsese’s neon-lit comedy thriller AFTER HOURS in stunning 35mm! Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) is pencil-pushing, office jockey experiencing the worst (but most memorable) night of his life after agreeing to meet up with a mysterious love interest at a café. With New York seemingly against, a series of improbable, lamentable (but hilarious) calamities ensue as he attempts to make his way home from SoHo. Scorsese’s preeminent black comedy, AFTER HOURS holds up as one of the director’s greatest deep cuts. Celebrating and skewering 80s’ era New York in a way that only a true New Yorker could, AFTER HOURS will make you want to wander the streets of SoHo, looking for trouble!
