King for a Night—In conjunction with the Taos Picture Show, taking place this very weekend, the Guild Cinema in Nob Hill will present a special screening of the film King of the Corner on Friday, April 1. The film's director/writer/star, Peter Riegert, will attend a Q&A session after each screening. (Screenings begin at 5 and 7:30 p.m.) Riegert started out as an actor in the classic comedy Animal House (where he played Boon), and went on to appear in more than 50 films, including Local Hero, Crossing Delancey, Infinity and Traffic. King of the Corner represents his first feature-filmmaking effort. A deadpan social comedy is based on Gerald Shapiro's book Bad Jews and Other Stories, the film paints a chaotic portrait of a middle-aged man (Riegert) who must deal with a dying father, a precocious daughter, an impatient wife and a tempting old flame. The cast is stocked with ringers like Eli Wallach, Isabella Rossellini, Beverly D'Angelo, Rita Moreno and Eric Bogosian. Riegert's previous directing effort, a short film called “The Courier,” was nominated for an Academy Award. Tickets for this special event will go quickly. The Guild Cinema is located at 3405 Central NE (255-1848).

The event will take place at the old Lobo Theater in Nob Hill beginning at 7 p.m. and will center around a screening of the company's previous locally lensed feature, Collecting Rooftops. The screening is free, but donations are encouraged, with all proceeds going toward the production of C.R.'s next film. Brand new special edition DVDs of Collecting Rooftops will also be available for sale at the screening. Filmmaker Billy Garberina (writer/director of Collecting Rooftops and Necroville) will be on hand to chat about his work. Anyone interested in pitching in with the production of Necroville is encouraged to attend. I hear zombie hordes are desperately needed.
