Mikey and Nicky (1976)

WHO: Elaine May wrote and directed this.

WHAT: The one film in May's career as a writer and/or director that is not a comedy, it was apparently based on an incident that happened to a family member. Alt Screen rounded up critical takes when the film played in New York 2 years ago.

WHERE/WHEN: Today at the Castro Theatre at 4:40 and 9:10.

WHY: New October calendar for the Castro just came out, with hints of November peeking through the curtain. Last night the venue played a trailer to Moonrise Kingdom between L'Avventura and Red Desert, so we might expect the Wes Anderson pairing November 3rd to be extended to more films that month.

HOW: Mikey and Nicky screens on a 35mm double-bill with Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets.
