A while back, Videology announced that they would be adding a screening room to the beloved Bedford Avenue movie rental store. I had totally forgotten about it, what with the Nitehawk and IndieScreen and all the plans for other new movie theaters in Williamsburg.
Well, apparently owners Wendy Chamberlain and James Leet didn’t forget. They’ll be opening for the screening and snacking business on Nov. 9, according to a press release that just landed in my inbox. Here’s what they’ll offer:
6 beers on tap; movie themed cocktails; several flavors of house made popcorn; and, ultimately, a full food menu. The screening room will host nightly events screened in high-definition and 5.1 surround sound throughout the week, including week long runs of new independent films; retrospectives and spotlights; theme nights; game and trivia nights; and midnight movies and kids’ matinees on the weekends.
Holy Motors will be the opening night movie, plus a more special shorts, a DJ and lots of drinks.
