Williamsburg's Nitehawk Cinema always has a bunch of cool special events in addition to its already great regular programming, including the latest in their "Live Sound Cinema" series which happens on July 28 featuring harpist Mary Lattimore and frequent collaborator Jeff Zeigler performing a live score to Phillipe Garrel's 1968 film Le Révélateur which they recently released as an LP on Thrill Jockey. Tickets for that are on sale now. You can listen to a bit of their score below.

Nitehawk also has some especially exciting director Q&As to look forward to on this summer's schedule. First, you'll have a chance to hear about the making of the highly classic Karate Kid with its director John D. Avildsen. That one goes down TONIGHT (7/7) at 7 PM, and you can still grab tickets to hear about catching flies with chopsticks, etc.

On July 12, the theater will play host to the great Steven Soderbergh, who will be on hand screening and discussing his highly underrated 2012 action movie Haywire. Starring UFC star Gina Carano alongside a ton of very famous people (Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, et al), it's one of Soderbergh's expert genre experiments that features some beautiful location shooting and some expertly-choreographed, everyone doing their own stunts, fight scenes. The event is also sponsored by Singani 63, the Bolivian liquor that Soderbergh discovered while shooting Che and subsequently began importing to the US, so as if the screening and Q&A weren't good enough, you can also grab some Haywire-inspired Singani 63 cocktails. Unfortunately that showing is sold out. If you're nearby it might be worth stopping by Nitehawk night of in case of standby tickets.

And the final Q&A is also very exciting, as the legendary Jonathan Demme will be on site to discuss his debut exploitation film Caged Heat. Going on to direct universally-agreed-upon classics like Melvin & Howard, Something Wild, Stop Making Sense and Silence of the Lambs, Caged Heat marks a rough, fascinating start for the director, and it should be interesting to hear him discuss his grindhouse-y origins in person. That event is also sold out.

Other fun Nitehawk screenings: their "Hot Horror" series and upcoming runs for movies like I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and Man on the Moon. Check out the full schedule here.
