Smartbar: Now Fortified With Movies!

By Scott Smith in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 1, 2005 6:41PM

We're always in favor of more places to see movies, especially if Free love on the free love highway!
those places are in close proximity to alcohol. So the news that Smartbar is now hosting a FREE Tuesday night movie night (via DVD projection) called "The Reel Deal" was welcome indeed. Bad news: you have to be 21+. Good news: they're showing two (tenuously thematically connected) classic cult films per night (plus an entire showing of the BBC's The Office on March 8th).

The films start at 8:15 PM tonight. Here's the entire lineup (courtesy of Chicagomonkey):

Tuesday February 1st - Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums
Tuesday February 8th - 24 Hour Party People, The Clash: Westway To The World
Tuesday February 15th - Office Space, Spinal Tap
Tuesday February 22nd - American Beauty, The Usual Suspects
Tuesday March 1st - Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life
Tuesday March 8th - BBC's The Office - All Night Long
Tuesday March 15th - The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy
Tuesday March 22nd - Donnie Darko, Blade Runner
Tuesday March 29th - Brazil, A Clockwork Orange
Tuesday April 5th - The Decline Of Western Civilization, Another State Of Mind
Tuesday April 12th - Amelie, Run Lola Run
Tuesday April 19th - Trainspotting, Lost In Translation
Tuesday April 26th - Before Sunrise, Before Sunset

No word on whether they'll offer a video dance remix of the intermission cartoon.
