After six Boro Park, N.Y., sex- and age-segregated auditorium screenings of Gidi Dar's religious comedy Ushpizin for the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community pulled in about $17,000 three weeks ago, the film rolls into an 800-seat Monsey, N.Y., auditorium at the Atrium Plaza Grand Ballroom this weekend for seven screenings. It will have four more at the Jewish Children's Museum in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Dec. 3 and 10, a run Picturehouse president Bob Berney hopes to extend. Plans for a monthlong run in a Boro Park storefront are in the works, Berney said.
