It’s a big news day for Breaking Bad fans. Just this morning the series picked up seven Primetime Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama and Outstanding Actor in a Drama for Bryan Cranston. On top of that, the Film Society’s partnership with AMC just keeps getting better. In addition to our free screenings of every Breaking Bad episode so far, we are thrilled to announce details about The Perfect Batch: Breaking Bad Cast Favorites. These screenings will take place Thursday, August 1 and Friday, August 2 at the Film Society’s Walter Reade Theater.

Thursday’s first panel at 6:15pm will feature Anna Gunn, RJ Mitte, and Bob Odenkirk. The three, who play Walter White’s wife Skyler, son Walt Jr., and the morally uncentered criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, respectively, will show two of their favorite episodes followed by a Q&A moderated by Matt Zoller Seitz of New York Magazine.

The second panel on Thursday will take place at 9:00pm with multiple Emmy-winning star Bryan Cranston, who will also screen two episodes and engage in a Q&A with Seitz. 

Panel 3, which will take place Friday at 6:15pm, will bring actors Betsy Brandt and Dean Norris, who play Marie and Hank Schrader, to the Film Society. Following their two chosen episodes, there will be a Q&A moderated by The New Yorker’s Emily Nussbaum.

Our fourth and final panel on Friday at 9:00pm will feature series mastermind and multiple WGA Award winner Vince Gilligan (creator, executive producer, writer, and director), whose previous credits include The X-Files. The Q&A following his two favorite episodes will also be moderated by Nussbaum.

Tickets are $15 for each panel, and a discount package for all four panels will be available for $50. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 19 at noon at our box offices and here at
