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?

One of the most tonally distinct – and criminally underrated – films in Martin Scorsese’s illustrious career, this dizzyingly paranoid, dreamlike comedy-inflected thriller returns to the big screen in a stunning new 4K restoration – approved by Scorsese’s longtime collaborator and editor extraordinaire Thelma Schoonmaker.
