Nov 11 - Nov 19

On John Belushi’s 30th birthday, he had the top TV show in Saturday Night Live, the top film in Animal House, and the top record with The Blues Brothers. But his insatiable appetites and anarchic energy were fraught with danger. Filmmaker R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) combines footage of Belushi’s legendary acts with rare footage and personal letters to his wife Judy to illuminate one of the great performers of the late 20th century.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A, immediately following the film.
