WHERE’S POPPA?

Directed by Carl Reiner

Starring George Segal and Ruth Gordon

(1970) “Is that a tush!” Exasperated son George Segal can’t stop insane Jewish mother Ruth Gordon from kissing his behind, while gorilla-suited brother Ron Leibman finds his true love in Central Park, in the blackest of all black comedies. With the original, uncensored answer to the title. 35mm. Approx. 82 min.
12:30, 4:00, 7:30

“GENUINELY OUTRAGEOUS…A series of extended slapstick riffs in which each dreamlike scene heads straight into psychosexual hyperbole...Hollywood’s equivalent of the Kafkaesque.” 
– J. Hoberman

“Works from the firm conviction that everyone in New York City is insane.”
Variety

BORN TO WIN

Directed by Ivan Passer

Starring George Segal and Robert De Niro

(1971) George Segal in his “most prodigious and imaginative performance” (Pauline Kael), as a heroin addict who haunts Times Square until a friend gets the obligatory “hot shot” in a hotel elevator. With Karen Black and a pre-Mean Streets Bobby De Niro. 35mm. Approx. 88 min.
2:10, 5:40, 9:15

“An unjustly neglected film.”
– Pauline Kael

“Makes you wonder what Passer’s been doing all your life.”
– J. Hoberman
