Hitting up a drive-in theater may not be a feasible option in Manhattan, but tonight at Arlo & Esme (42 E 1st St between First and Second Aves, 212-777-5617), you can still enjoy car and film culture without riding your own steel horse. Cine Meccanica is hosting the second in its monthlong series of Tuesday night screenings that highlight automobile-themed flicks. At 8pm, catch John Carpenter's 1983 adaptation of Stephen King's Christine, which features a pretty sweet 1958 Plymouth Fury. Show up at 7pm for cocktails with like-minded cinephiles/car buffs/loiterers—you'll have to pay for the booze, but the movie (and the popcorn!) is free.
