IrrationalEmma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix pair up in IRRATIONAL MAN, the latest feature from writer-director Woody Allen, and the latest sneak-peek screening from the folks at the borough-based Monmouth Arts Council.

It’s as dependable as beach fees, summer gas prices or the annual appearance of a new feature film from writer, director and occasional star Woody Allen.

Once or twice each year, audiences on the Greater Red Bank Green are offered the chance to catch a buzzed-about arthouse movie, screened in advance of its general release as a fundraiser for the folks at Red Bank’s own Monmouth County Arts Council.

Coordinated by Middletown-based Tom Bernard of Sony Pictures Classics, and hosted at Bow Tie Cinemas on White Street, these events have often dipped into the seemingly bottomless well of the prolific Woodman’s cinematic legacy, as with last year’s preview of Magic by Moonlight. This Thursday evening, the stars align once more as the MCAC presents a sneak-peek look at the director’s 50th feature, Irrational Man.
