    Notes on reRun.

    I recently took a trip out to Dumbo for the opening night of reRun, Brooklyn's latest indie movie theater. In short: Local cinephiles simply must check out the laidback atmosphere and low budget program offerings, most of which are culled from the festival circuit. Check out my entire report here.
