The Belmont Gets Shallow

You've never seen Shallow Grave? Shame on you. Danny Boyle's directorial debut is both hysterically funny and psychotically scary at the same time. So what better way to spend a hot summer night than relaxing poolside, drink in hand, at a classic mid-century motor hotel (a la Psycho) watching this intriguing selection of the Belmont Hotel's B-Reel Movie Series? You'll never look at roommates the same after witnessing a trio of Edinburgh flatmates' (including Ewan McGregor and Christoper Eccleston) attempt to find a fourth, only to have their final choice result in an unending web of death and deception—and a lot of money. The creepy adventure begins poolside at sundown (around 8:30 p.m.) Tuesday at the Belmont Hotel, 901 Fort Worth Ave. Admission is free and a cash bar is available. Call 866-870-8010 or visit
