Friends (with benefits)
Gorman Bechard, Hamden CT, Narrative Feature, 93 minutes

Friends (with benefits) is a feature-length romantic comedy for all those allergic to romance, and for all who have come of (sexual) age in this cynical time of hook-ups, break-ups, and serial amour.

FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS) is a tale of sexual identity and true love; of controversy and relationships redefined; a thinking person’s romantic comedy (with belly-laughs).

Special Screening: "The Warriors"

The Warriors
A Coney Island cult classic. Every year we pack the house and wouldn't you know it, it becomes an interactive film going experience! People reciting lines, loud applause, clanging beer bottles. CAN YOU DIG IT?? Advance ticket purchase strongly suggested to avoid sell out. We are the only venue in the Coney Island Amusement zone to screen this Coney Island Classic. See it in the actual neighborhood it was shot in!
