As we blogged a couple weeks ago in our Arthouse Confidential post about independent theaters, there’s a lot of cool stuff going on at local arthouse cinemas around the country. If you’re lucky enough to live near one, you can take advantage of all sorts of great opportunities to see films that may be otherwise difficult to catch on the big screen — and maybe even meet the filmmakers. Even if you don’t live near one, it can be a fun excuse for a little excursion. If you’re in the New York area on March 16, consider a trip up to Upstate Films in Rhinebeck — about two hours from NYC — where you can catch a screening of newly-minted Academy Award winner for Best Documentary, Taxi to the Dark Side, including a Q&A with director Alex Gibney. It’s sure to be a great opportunity to ask questions about the film.
