Tribeca Film Festival's Road Show Takes Over the Presidio Theatre This Weekend

Founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Meet the Parents producer Jane Rosenthal and philanthropist Craig Katkoff as part of an effort to revitalize one of Lower Manhattan's most prestigious neighborhoods in the wake of Sept. 11, the Tribeca Film Festival has added to its repertoire a traveling road show, set to arrive tonight at the Presidio Theatre on Chestnut Street.

Life Is a Blood-Soaked Highway in 'Zombieland'

There is no social satire to be gleaned from the stylishly staged skull crunching in Ruben Fleischer’s post-apocalyptic comedy Zombieland – and not much in the way of serious horror. The first-time feature director (formerly of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!) aims more for laughs than for the unrelenting dread of George A. Romero’s Living Dead movies, and he succeeds almost effortlessly: At 81 minutes, his debut is cheerfully macabre, briskly paced, brimming with demented energy, and otherwise totally disposable.
