Quick-witted comedian and film buff to boot, Greg Proops hosts a monthly screening series at the Cinefamily. This month, he presents 1970s bank-robber verité "Dog Day Afternoon."
From Proops himself:
Sidney Lumet is one of the great directors of the era (Network, Serpico, The Verdict), and has the conscience to make this unlikely heist movie into a running discussion of authority, sexual identity and civil rights. Pacino once strode the earth as a protean force; come and dig him in his jungle element.
In addition, Proops will record his monthly film podcast live from the Cinefamily stage prior to the screening. Check the Cinefamily website for tickets and more information.
