Friday, July 13th
SFMoMA, San Francisco
8:30 PM, All Ages
Did you miss out on seeing “Get Out” in the theatre, or just want to catch it again on the big screen? Now is your chance to watch this Oscar-award-winning film at SF MoMA.
“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner meets The Stepford Wives in Get Out in which a white girl brings her Black boyfriend home to meet her parents, whose superficially warm welcome masks an unthinkably dark secret. Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless — which is not at all the same thing as scareless. In fact, from the steady joy-buzzer thrills to its terrifying notion of a new way that white people have found to perpetuate the peculiar institution of slavery, Get Out delivers plenty to frighten and enrage audiences.” — Peter Debruge, Variety
