What could be better than the pairing of great cocktails with a wonderful movie on a cold winter night in Gowanus? If you agree, you may want to head over to Bar Halyards at 406 3rd Avenue tonight for a free screening of Stanley Kubrick's 1956 film noir "The Killing."
Or if you prefer, stop by tomorrow eve for "Harry Potter And the Prisoner Of Azkabar."
Did I mention free pop-corn will be served as well?
Halyards Cinemateque features movies in the cocktail bar's back room every Monday and Tuesday night at 8 pm. (Check the schedule here.)

THE KILLING (1956)
Stanley Kubrick’s account of an ambitious racetrack robbery is one of Hollywood’s tautest, twistiest noirs. Aided by a radically time-shuffling narrative, razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson, and a phenomenal cast of character actors, including Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Timothy Carey, Elisha Cook Jr., and Marie Windsor, The Killing is both a jaunty thriller and a cold-blooded punch to the gut. And with its precise tracking shots and gratifying sense of irony, it’s Kubrick to the core.
