Set in 1984 on the streets of Manhattan’s lower east side, Jeffrey Arsenault’s gritty, guerrilla-style debut feature is a nightmarish tale of urban vampires. In one of his earliest screen appearances, John Leguizamo stars as Angel, a young man on a desperate search for his missing sister. Alongside incredible glimpses of long-gone Lower East Side clubs, NIGHT OWL also features cameos from local nightlight personalities Michael Musto, house music pioneer Screamin’ Rachel, and Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn. Spectacle is thrilled to present Arsenault's deep-cut indie nightmare in a gorgeous new digital restoration courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome and the American Genre Film Archive.

Part of JACK YA' BODY, programmed in collaboration with Alfreda's Cinema. JACK YA' BODY is an odyssey into the gritty world of underground disco and house-music dance culture through a selection of features, shorts, and found footage spanning NY-Chicago-Detroit in the 80/90s. Opening with Nicky Siano's LOVE IS THE MESSAGE introduced by Melissa Lyde, this program features talks with DJs Joey Llanos (Paradise Garage), Douglas Sherman (The Loft/Joy), and Tabu (Soul Summit). Film critic and 4Columns film editor Melissa Anderson will introduce Derek Jarman’s recently rediscovered WILL YOU DANCE WITH ME?, and we will be joined by award-winning broadcast journalist Mark Riley to close out the program following the final night of MAESTRO.
