New York City 2017-18

While we continue our search for a permanent home for HARLAN JACOBSON’S TALK CINEMA,  the JCC Manhattan at 76th and Amsterdam has offered to present TALK CINEMA in the beautiful state-of-the art CAROLE ZABAR FILM CENTER.   
Three at the JCC!
We'll present sneak previews on three Sundays in a row - October 22, October 29 and November 5 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.  Or call the box office at 646-505-4444.
It’s a departure from our once a month gatherings these past 22 years at The Walter Reade, but being the intrepid filmgoers that you are, we hope you’ll be willing to wander with us until we can settle into a regular schedule and set venue. We continue to look for a conveniently located, state of the art theatre for 2018 screenings.
We’re excited to get back together to share discoveries in new cinema and have a great, wide-ranging conversation with you!  Please hold the dates and plan to join us. 

Last season our NYC audience was among the first film lovers in the US to preview such great films as the famously botched Oscar night Best Film winner, Moonlight, the Palme D'Or winning I, Daniel Blake, 20th Century Women with Annette Bening in her best role in years, plus the way off the radar but timely Moscow Never Sleeps, after which we memorably closed the season with an appearance by director Geremy Jasper to discuss his Newark-based, Sundance a rap-star-is-born hit film, Patty Cake$.
