Valentine's Day 2019

Valentine's Day

at Metrograph

Colliding cars, cannibalism, and a sentimental song at Rick’s Café—these are just a few of the ways that lovers have of expressing their emotions in our wild ride of a Valentine’s Day series, which embraces romances queer and straight, spiritual and carnal, and everything in between. A great date for a special someone, someones, or just yourself—and why not make a night of it upstairs in the cozy confines of the Commissary, with a cocktail, a sweet treat, or our special Valentine's Day prix fixe dinner.

Crash

A cautionary tale of machine age eroticism, with James Spader as a film producer who, after a head-on smash-up, finds himself drawn into an underground society of men and women who fetishize auto collisions. The movie that gives a whole new meaning to “sex drive.”
