The New York street system consists of 6174 miles of mostly asphalt roads and legend has it that a real yellow cab driver knows this jungle like the back of his hand. The filmmakers Jean Tsien and Joshua Weinstein mixed with the colourful community of drivers, mechanics and office clerks working for a long-established taxi company in Queens to document that the original ideal of the common man’s Big Apple is still very much alive and present in this slightly seedy enterprise. They avoided the trap of producing a simple assertion of an idyllic or even paradisiacal situation, opting instead for a highly enjoyable demonstration of that unspectacular and delightful feeling described by Hemingway when he remembered an encounter with some craftsmen during a stay in Paris in the 1920s: “It was easier to think if I was walking and doing something or seeing people doing something that they understood.“ What’s left? The certainty that it can’t hurt to feel grateful for little things occasionally. – Ralph Eue (DOK Leipzig Programmer)

(March 2011) ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY called reRun one of 8 nationwide theaters "redefining the moviegoing experience."
(April 2011) EVERY DAY WITH RACHAEL RAY praised reRun's gourmet popcorn as one of 4 nationwide theaters "giving their classic snack an upgrade."
(October 2011) TIME OUT NEW YORK singled out reRun as a "DIY trailblazer," saying they "love reRun's laid-back vibe" and "friendly staff."
(December 2011) TRAVEL AND LEISURE hailed reRun, among 9 others, as one of "The World's Coolest Movie Theaters."
(February 2012) VARIETY says reRun "raises bar for indies" and is "among the only theaters in the U.S. that provides newfound theatrical and ancillary opportunities to films without a [distributor]."
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.
During off-hours reRun is available for private rental. Children's birthdays, corporate off-site meetings, and private get-togethers are all possible in the theater. Call Veronica at (917) 583-9343 for private bookings. Catering available for your parties through reBar.//
