After Hours

22 – 28 March, 2024

For the March edition of Scorsese of the Month, we’re delighted to bring you the new 4K restoration of this darkly comic tale.

What if that date you thought would never end didn’t? When an uptown New Yorker innocently meets a downtown girl, he’s uncontrollably drawn into a vortex of wild, malevolent and paranoid adventures After Hours. Paul Hackett’s (Griffin Dunne) terrible night happens in the SoHo area of downtown Manhattan when he goes to keep a date with Marcy (Rosanna Arquette). Nothing in his humdrum life as a word processor has prepared him for his surreal encounters with Marcy; her far-out artist roommate Kiki (Linda Fiorentino); cocktail waitress Julie (Teri Garr); ice cream vendor Gail (Catherine O’Hara); and June (Verna Bloom), who lives in the basement of a nightclub. Now, Paul longs only for the safety of his upper-East Side apartment … but will he ever make it home?

Martin Scorsese takes a darkly comic look at his favourite city in this wild free-for-all that won him Best Director honours at the 1985 Independent Spirit Awards and the 1986 Cannes Film Festival. Scorsese said Joseph Minion’s tantalising script was ‘like a Chinese puzzle.’ You’ll howl as you put the pieces together.
