Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain

It’s not where you go. It’s what you leave behind…Chef, writer, adventurer, provocateur: Anthony Bourdain lived his life unabashedly. Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From StardomWon’t You Be My Neighbor?), this unflinching look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him.

Based on the positive feedback we’ve received, beginning on August 12 we will offer screenings for fully-vaccinated patrons on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays until further notice. We will require proof of vaccination to enter the JBFC Theater. Proof of vaccination may include your vaccination card, a copy of the card on your phone, or the New York Excelsior Pass app on your phone, in combination with your ID. You will not be permitted inside the facility without proof of vaccination on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays. Please note, a negative COVID test is not sufficient for entry.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

“This is one of the best documentaries of 2021, an engaging and empathetic portrait of a complex man that doesn’t just provide biography as much as it does insight into the human condition”
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
"Audiences drawn to Bourdain through the years... [are given] the invaluable gift of a stronger connection, deeper knowledge, and just a little more time."
Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap
