Up All Night, Vol. 1: NIGHT ON EARTH – 35mm

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.

Third in our line-up of cinematic one-night stands, NIGHT ON EARTH is high Renaissance Jarmusch—punk, noir, and hilarious it features zany, off brand performances from a variety of beloved performers, including but not limited to Winona Ryder, Gena Rowlands, Béatrice Dalle, Roberto Benigni, Rosie Perez. Set to an iconic Tom Waits’ soundtrack and spread over five nocturnal vignettes, cab drivers from New York, Helsinki, Los Angeles, Rome, and Paris form unbreakable, albeit temporary bonds with their passengers all on one night, as everyone else in their respective cities sleep. Instilling black comedy with neo-noir, Jarmusch’s globetrotting vignette compilation tape is a must-see, especially on super slick 35mm.
