INCLUDED IN SUNSHINE CINEMA'S MIDNIGHT SERIES
This winter, NYC's famed Sunshine Cinema is presenting the "Sunshine At Midnight" series, screening classic flims like Ghostbusters, Rear Window, and Jurassic Park throughout January and February. This weekend, the featured film is cult favorite Bad Biology, produced and co-written by none other than underground rap legend R.A. The Rugged Man.

The film has only had limited theatrical runs since its 2008 release, so this is a rare chance to witness the sex, violence, absurdity, and hip-hop first-hand.
Bad Biology is playing this Friday and Satruday, January 21st and 22nd, at Landmark's Sunshine Cinema at 143 East Houston Street on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Tickets are $9.99. "Sunshine At Midnight" is presented by the Village Voice and WNYU's The New Afternoon Show.
Driven by biological excess, a young man and woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other's existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in an explosive and ultimately over-the-top sexual experience, resulting in a truly godawful love story.... With bizarre special effects by Gabe Bartalos, a hip-hop soundtrack from Prince Paul, and shot in glorious 35mm, Bad Biology is guaranteed to shock even the most desensitized of audiences, and sure to become a modern cult classic. (No one under 18 admitted.)

About Blue Bloods:
Blue Bloods is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York City Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny, a seasoned detective, family man, and Iraqi War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases. The sole Reagan woman in the family, Erin, is a N.Y. Assistant D.A. and newly single parent, who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. Jamie is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family's "golden boy;" however, unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a newly minted cop. Jamie's life takes an abrupt turn when he's asked to become part of a clandestine police investigation even his father knows nothing about, and one that could impact the family's legacy.
