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.

For our closing night film, we’re taking it to the streets of Los Angeles with Michael Mann’s rousing cat-and-mouse thriller COLLATERAL. In a rare silver-foxed turn, ruthless hitman Tom Cruise offers ambitious cab driver Jamie Foxx (in an Oscar-nominated performance) $600 to be his personal driver for the night. What Foxx doesn’t realize is that he has unwittingly signed up to become Cruise’s accomplice in 5 hired hits that need to be completed before the dawn breaks. What ensues is a night chock full of mayhem, debauchery, and the seediest of L.A. locations. Hop in to The Royal Cinema. The metre is running.
