New York Film Fest in Vegas, and Tropicana Cinemas

The New York Film and Video Festival is looking to introduce Big Apple attitude throughout the US, and Vegas is one of their stops. The NYC-based fest will be in town for 7 days, from July 20th through the 27th.

Like CineVegas, the festival will be shown at the Brenden Theatres in the Palms Casino. In addition to the movie viewings, there will be seminars with locals such as Jeanne Corcoran (Nevada Film Commission) and John Marsh (Professor at the Community College of Southern Nevada) There will also be, of course, afterparties at a myriad of bars and clubs throughout the city.

When you tire of being bumped into by imported New Yorkers (Whatchulookngnat?!!!!), head over to the Tropicana Cinemas, who are putting up the most eclectic movie schedules the city has seen. While The Trop has a typical selection of slightly aged movies like "13 Going on 30", "Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed", and "Laws of Attraction", it's the Special Events movies that warrant attention:

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
A Clockwork Orange
This Is Spinal Tap
Cheech & Chong's "Nice Dreams"
Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon

This last movie deserves special note because Pouncy over at Vegasgoths is the reason it's showing in the first place.

"If you have a movie that you want to see, that you haven't seen in a few years, just ask Scott. He can get anything. Just because I asked, they played 'The Wall' last week, and they are going to play 'The last Dragon' in August...

So sayeth Pouncy."

Amen, now go see a movie.
