New York Film Critics Series launches live in-theatre screenings and Q&As

Nov 1, 2013

The New York Film Critics Series® has partnered with movie theatre locations throughout the U.S. to present a live, national in-theatre screening series. The events will be moderated by Peter Travers, film critic for Rolling Stone and ABC’s “Popcorn.” The series presents pre-release movies and big-screen HD simulcasts with the stars and filmmakers.
 
The opening night will feature Paramount Vantage’s Nebraska, with live appearances by the film’s stars Bruce Dern (winner of the Best Actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival), Will Forte and June Squibb. The event will be simulcast live from New York City’s AMC Empire on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. EST. The monthly screenings are expected to take place in roughly 50 major markets.
 
Series producer Mark Ehrenkranz stated, “Filmgoers now have immediate access to personally chat with artisans to honestly discuss their work. The creators of the smaller, better films will now mutually interact with a nationwide audience to help spread the word and ensure that these films of high caliber continue to be made and distributed.”
