Please Note: Due to construction work taking place around Alice Tully Hall, the only access to the Walter Reade Theater is at 165 West 65th Street close to Amsterdam Avenue. Once there, take the escalator, elevator or stairs up to the upper level.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center is pleased to welcome actors Steve Buscemi and Sam Rockwell and director Alexandre Rockwell to the Walter Reade Theater for a special 15th anniversary screening of their film In the Soup, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m., as part of the Film Society?s year-round Young Friends of Film series.

The evening will include the film, an onstage discussion with the special guests, and a catered reception immediately following with a live performance by singer Michael Leviton.

Buscemi stars in the film, which screened at the 1992 New York Film Festival.

A depressed and obsessive screenwriter named Adolpho Rollo (Buscemi) cannot get his love interest (
Jennifer Beals) to do more than notice him. Dejected, he turns to Joe (Seymour Cassell), a gregarious investor, as a last-ditch effort to produce his 800-page script. Veteran actor Cassell earned Sundance's Best Actor award for his endearing and hilarious performance.

Tickets for the Young Friends of Film screening of In the Soup are $25 for the general public and include the screening and the reception afterward.

Young Friends of Film is a membership program at the Film Society, designed for film enthusiasts ages 21-40. Screening classic films from past New York Film Festivals and New Directors/New Films series, paired with special guest speakers and after-screening parties, Young Friends of Film events allow younger generations of moviegoers firsthand access to the remarkable films they may not have had the chance to see on the big screen.

Recent events included screenings of Robert Benton's "Bad Company" and Werner Herzog's "Nosferatu," with recent appearances from Benton, Crispin Glover, Matt Dillon and at a preview screening of his third directorial effort, "Lonesome Jim," Steve Buscemi.

About The
Film Society of Lincoln Center

Best known for two world-class international festivals: the New York Film Festival (Sep. 28 - Oct. 14, 2007), and New Directors/New Films (Mar. 21 - Apr. 1, 2007, co-presented by the Department of Film at the Museum of Modern Art), the Film Society operates the Walter Reade Theater and publishes Film Comment magazine.

The Film Society presents year-round programming at the Walter Reade Theater that includes premieres of new films from an international roster of established and emerging directors; major retrospectives; in-depth symposia and high profile events.

Afterchat (& Party) will be in the gallery area of the Walter Reade theater. If you are a late arrival just look for the guy with the MEETUP sign. Seats go fast so try to arrive by 7pm to sit with the group (I will be holding seats for the MEETUP until forced to release them, so be early).
