Veteran character actor JAMES KAREN in person!
- Monday, May 20 at 7:30pm
Veteran character actor JAMES KAREN will introduce a special screening of THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD on Monday, May 20 at 7:30.
Karen began his professional career with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse in 1939 and made his Broadway debut in the original production of A Streetcar Named Desire in 1947. Featured in a 2012 Vanity Fair photo spread on Hollywood's most recognizable character actors, Karen's 200+ movie credits include The China Syndrome, Mulholland Dr., Wall Street, Nixon, The Pursuit of Happyness, and Poltergeist (he was the evil developer who moved the head stones, but not the bodies) – as well as a stint as rich attorney Lincoln Tyler on the long-running soap All My Children – but he's perhaps best known to New Yorkers as "The Pathmark Man." A conversation and Q&A with Mr. Karen will follow the screening.
