NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!
*** Writer-Director MATTHEW LESSNER and Special Guests
in person Fri. 3/2 + Sat. 3/3 ***
"With a sturdy indie vibe and pacing that feels like 'PORTLANDIA,' this film, a series of related sketches, maintains a laconic, deadpan tone that's a nice break from the usual high-volume comedy."
- Daniel M. Gold, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"The only Sundance  film about cults that could actually have life as a cult film, THE WOODS has the greatest comic insight into why our current culture might inspire a search for meaning in the first place."
- Karina Longworth, LA WEEKLY
"Trippy, peppy, smart and strange! The cast is spirited, but Lessner is more invested in the textures of the filmmaking than in characters or plot. The film is a rush of color, sound, sly visual jokes, and exuberant energy..."
- Shawn Levy, THE OREGONIAN
"THE WOODS isn't for everyone, but I mean that as a compliment."
- Michael Cera, star of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD
WATCH THE TRAILER:
Writer-director Matthew Lessner's THE WOODS is a "psychedelic satire of hipster back-to-nature idealism" (LA Weekly). The irreverent and outrageous comedy freak-out of Sundance and BAMcinemaFest makes its NYC theatrical premiere with a week-long run, March 2 - 8.
Disillusioned by the world's many problems, a group of young Americans move to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with hopes of creating their own utopian society. Despite their revolutionary goals, the group is ill-prepared for their new life, bringing a wide assortment of consumer electronics, recreational vehicles and snack foods. After catastrophic events in the outside world sever their electricity and wi-fi, and their leader's once-inspiring rhetoric fails to hold them together, the group is forced to find a way to live in harmony with the natural world.
With saturated super-16 footage and a killer soundtrack featuring Dirty Projectors, Sun Araw, Lucky Dragons, and original compositions by Lydia Ainsworth, Lessner playfully subverts counterculture films of the '70s while questioning the shortcomings of his own apathetic generation.
90 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated. A Baxter Brothers/Cinemad Presents release.

(December 2011) TRAVEL AND LEISURE hailed reRun, among 9 others, as one of "The World's Coolest Movie Theaters."
(February 2012) VARIETY says reRun "raises bar for indies" and is "among the only theaters in the U.S. that provides newfound theatrical and ancillary opportunities to films without a [distributor]."
reRun is reBar's independent cinema, located just down the hall from the restaurant. Featuring 48 reclaimed car seats, full bar, gourmet snack counter, and a 12-foot screen, reRun offers just the kind of intimate art-house theater experience you'd expect from the creators of the funky gastropub reBar.
reRun provides a large theater AV experience. An all-digital 1080p HD projector, coupled with a monstrous JBL 7.1 surround pro-audio sound system make the movies projected on the twelve foot screen come alive in a sparkling show. The bar features two rotating draft taps, a broad selection of bottled craft beers, a selection of sustainable, organic, and biodynamically farmed wines, a full liquor cabinet for your imbibing pleasure, and traditional and creative snacks created by reBar's Executive Chef Jeremy Leech.
