PELHAM, N.Y. – The Pelham Picture House will show an advance screening Wednesday of “The Big Short,” a film recounting the financial crisis of 2007-10.

Based on the Michael Lewis book of the same name, the film was directed by Adam McKay, who will be on hand for a Q&A afterward led by Marshall Fine, The Pelham Picture House’s artist-in-residence.

Starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, the film, set for wider released just days later, is already generating Oscar buzz, according to a statement from the theater.

McKay served as head writer for “Saturday Night Live” for two seasons and directed “Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights” and “Step Brothers,” all of which he co-wrote with actor Will Ferrell. Lewis is a best-selling author whose other credits include the books, “Liar’s Poker,” “Flash Boys,” and “Moneyball.”

The film is set to start at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. General admission tickets cost $12. Students and seniors can gain admittance for $10 and members of The Pelham Picture House can get in for $6.

The Pelham Picture House is at 175 Wolfs Lane. For more information, visit the theater's website or call 914-738-3161.
