Thirty years ago, Cameron Crowe shifted the landscape of romantic comedies with his remarkable and deeply felt debut that chronicled, with tender and warm-hearted authenticity, a vivid tale of first love. Charting the blooming romance between recent high-school graduates Lloyd (John Cusack) and Diane (Ione Sky), Crowe gave audiences one of cinema’s most indelible and enduring romantic movie moments: a lovesick boy, standing outside a girl’s window, asking her to love him with the help of Peter Gabriel and a boombox. Three decades later, Say Anything… continues to give off the affectionate, enveloping glow of first love.

After the Screening: A conversation with director Cameron Crowe, executive producer James L. Brooks, and cast members John Cusack and Ione Skye.
SCREENING TIMES: TUE – 4/30 @ 8:00 PM (BMCC Tribeca PAC)

Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke star in Ben Stiller’s 1994 feature film directorial debut, the iconic comedy-drama that defined a generation of independent moviegoing-and-moviegoers with its achingly-relatable portrait of early 90’s disaffected youth struggling to live and love amid the brutal reality of (almost) adulthood. In the film, written by Helen Childress, Lelaina Pierce (Ryder) navigates her post-college disillusionment by turning the camera on her friends: the free-spirited Vickie (Janeane Garofalo); Sammy (Steve Zahn), struggling to come out to his conservative parents; and the passionate but direction-less Troy (Hawke), with whom Lelaina is romantically-entwined until video executive Michael (Stiller, who co-stars) arrives with the promise of both budding romance and the chance for Lelaina to cash in on her dreams—but at what expense? Reality Bites may have been for and about Generation X, but has proven itself a timeless, decades-spanning classic.

After the Screening: A conversation reuniting director Ben Stiller, writer Helen Childress, actors Ethan Hawke, Winona Ryder, Janeane Garofalo, Steve Zahn, producer Michael Shamberg, and executive producer Stacey Sher.
SCREENING TIMES: SAT – 5/4 @ 2:00PM (BMCC Tribeca PAC)

Michael J. Fox opened up about a new spinal cord problem he’s been facing, in addition to his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease, in a new interview with New York Times Magazine. “I was told it was benign but if it stayed static I would have diminished feeling in my legs and difficulty moving,” he said. “Then all of a sudden I started falling — a lot. It was getting ridiculous. I was trying to parse what was the Parkinson’s and what was the spinal thing.” Read More here

Season 2 of Cobra Kai — YouTube Premium’s hit continuation of The Karate Kid franchise — will seek to answer one very important question: Is the Valley big enough for two rival karate dojos? After watching Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and his “no mercy” Cobra Kai school take the All Valley championship, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) will make good on his promise to open a kinder, gentler dojo — Miyagi-do — but it’s going to be a lot harder than selling cars. “As we saw in season one with Johnny, it’s not always easy to fill your dojo with students and make an immediate success of it in the valley,” says executive producer Josh Heald. “And with those growing pains comes more rivalry.” EW got more details about season 2 — premiering this spring — from Heald and his fellow executive producers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.
