A typically eclectic group of filmgoers hit the Cinema Society and Condé Nast Traveler screening of “Transsiberian” Tuesday night. Steve Buscemi, Ann Dexter Jones, Judd Hirsch and Russell Simmons viewed the thriller, about one couple’s disastrous journey on the legendary train that travels from Beijing to St. Petersburg, before heading to the yard of the Soho Grand Hotel for some food and drink. There, the film’s star, Emily Mortimer, held court with director Brad Anderson and regaled guests with tales from the two-month-long shoot with co-stars Woody Harrelson, Kate Mara and Sir Ben Kingsley in Lithuania. “We went to the one Indian restaurant there with Ben and it was like we walked in with Gandhi,” Mortimer said laughing. “Of course he played it up.”
