Pre-Oscars, Stupid Pills is honored to present to you the total immersive Scheider environment.
In advance of the Oscars, we present a full dose of one of cinema's most inconspicuous and confounding artists: Mr. Roy Scheider.
Three of his best starting at 7PM.
Special honors and art cake at 11PM.
He got his nose in a boxing match, his discipline from the US Air Force, his angst from an overbearing father, and his ambition from a mentor who told him regularly he wasn't tall, handsome, or leading man material. The name Scheider comes from the German verb scheiden, meaning to separate precious metals (such as gold) from lesser ores. Twice nominated, Roy never took home an Oscar.
Delve in with us—savor this tough/sensitive-guy genius from that glorious decade of film that was the 1970s. We're screening three of his best: The Outside Man, Sorcerer, and All That Jazz. They are films to hang out and drink beer to; they are films to bring your loved one to, or your friends, or just bring yourself.
We're honored to present to you the total immersive Scheider environment.
