Being John Malkovich

Ever wanted to be someone else? Now you can.

“Have you ever had two people look at you, with complete lust and devotion, through the same pair of eyes?”

Join us on the 7 1/2th floor of the Rio Theatre on April 5, as our Friday Late Night Movie series continues with Spike Jonze’s brilliantly insane and insanely brilliantly work of magic-realism, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH.

This breathtakingly unique and wildly-imagined cult-favorite follows mildly neurotic puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), who reluctantly takes a temp job at a strange office only to discover a bizarre portal leading directly… Into the mind of actor John Malkovich. Featuring crazed monkey flashbacks, Cameron Diaz, one of the strangest three-ways ever put on film, Charlie Sheen, puppets, Catherine Keerner, the New Jersey turnpike, and, of course – MALKOVICH!

“The crazy-ass imagination at work in BEING JOHN MALKOVICH hits you like a blast of pure oxygen. Unblemished by solemnity, intellectual pretensions or elephant dung, this movie of constant astonishments will make you laugh hard and long.” (Rolling Stone)
