On the heels of a two-week run at Manhattan's Cinema Village, Jonathan Lisecki, recently named one of Out Magazine's 100 Most Compelling People of the Year, is bringing his debut feature, Gayby to Brooklyn for a special four-night engagement.
Jenn (Jenn Harris) and Matt (Matthew Wilkas) are best friends from college who are now in their thirties. Single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching hot yoga and running errands for her boss. Matt suffers from comic-book writer's block and can't get over his ex-boyfriend. They decide to fulfill a youthful promise to have a child together... the old-fashioned way. Can they navigate the serious and unexpected snags they hit as they attempt to get their careers and dating lives back on track in preparation for parenthood? Gayby is an irreverent comedy about friendship, growing older, sex, loneliness, and the family you choose.
Lisecki will appear all four-nights for post-screening Q&As, and will be joined by moderators from the NYC film community. Don't miss your last chance to see this "fantastic first feature for a major new comedy voice" (About.com) on the big-screen in NYC!
“Utterly sweet, heartfelt and wildly entertaining at the same time. Lisecki, making his feature-length directorial debut, announces himself as a strong new voice in American cinema with a resolutely modern eye.” — Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE
“Hilariously awkward.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Nimble... laugh-out-loud.” — Steve Dollar, WALL STREET JOURNAL
“One of the funniest comedies — queer or otherwise — this year.... Gayby is full of smart situations and hilarious smartass one-liners. It also has tremendous heart.” — Gary Kramer, GAY CITY NEWS
“A hilariously bitchy but sweet comedy that serves as Gotham's answer to Portlandia.” — Aaron Hillis, VILLAGE VOICE

reRun is reBar's independent cinema, located just down the hall from the restaurant. Featuring 48 reclaimed car seats, full bar, gourmet snack counter, and a 12-foot screen, reRun offers just the kind of intimate art-house theater experience you'd expect from the creators of the funky gastropub reBar.
reRun provides a large theater AV experience. An all-digital 1080p HD projector, coupled with a monstrous JBL 7.1 surround pro-audio sound system make the movies projected on the twelve foot screen come alive in a sparkling show. The bar features two rotating draft taps, a broad selection of bottled craft beers, a selection of sustainable, organic, and biodynamically farmed wines, a full liquor cabinet for your imbibing pleasure, and traditional and creative snacks created by reBar's Executive Chef Jeremy Leech.
