Alright Alamo fans, here's your chance to win tickets to two of the screenings from the American Express sponsored Tribeca Film Festival On The Road. We're giving away tickets to today's screenings of ULTRASUEDE: IN SEARCH OF HALSTRON and NORTHEAST.
ULTRASUEDE: IN SEARCH OF HALSTRON screens at 3:15 PM and will be followed by a Q&A with the director Whitney Sudler-Smith. A glowing, prismatic portrait of the rise and fall of America's first celebrity designer—Halston—the man who was synonymous with fashion in the 1970s, and became the emperor of NYC nightlife. Interviews with friends and witnesses (including Liza Minnelli, Diane Von Furstenberg, André Leon Talley, Anjelica Huston, Bob Colacello, and Billy Joel, among others) round out this glittering evocation of the man who defined the most beautiful and decadent era of recent memory. The film will screen with the short film MR. STACHE.
NORTHEAST screens tonight at 9 PM and is followed by a Q&A with director Gregory Kohn, actor Jason Selvig and actor Eleonore Hendricks. Will (David Call), an unemployed and aimless playboy in Brooklyn, New York, has spent his 20’s skating on easy charm from one casual, distant relationship to the next. But as his friends gradually settle into steady jobs and committed relationships, Will takes one last shot at finding a real connection with someone and with it a foothold in the next stage of his life. Shot on 16mm with a who’s-who cast from the New York DIY film scene, NORTHEAST represents both the debut of an original directorial voice and a moment of renaissance for the early days of American independent film. The film will screen with the short film MR. STACHE.
Both screenings include a complimentary appetizer and a drink from our selected menu that includes some of Houston's best craft beers or a soft drink.
