Film Forum: Come back soon“Rendez-vous in July”
Tickets: $15 ($9 for members)
This summer, after theater reopens
209 West Houston Street
</URL>The theater’s under construction, and the official word on the anticipated return — “re-opening this summer” — is a tiny bit vague. But those who love heading to Houston Street for their film fix have no choice but to be patient. The renovations will bring about a fourth screen, new seating and an anticipated $6 million worth of improvements. Not bad for a singular film institution, which began with 50 folding chairs almost 50 years ago. Up first after the reopening: Jacques Becker’s “Rendez-vous in July,” part of a 15-film festival dedicated to Becker’s work.
