Oh, the hells of being a collector. Whether your poison is records, comic books, action figures or little ceramic angels, if you're a collector you've known pain. From empty wallets to apartments overflowing with crap you can no longer remember why you once thought you needed, collecting is both a passion and a curse.

Join us this July for a 35mm screening of Terry Zwigoff's GHOST WORLD - a bittersweet coming of age movie about two social misfits whose prank on a middle-aged record collector spirals into something larger, uglier and - at the same time - more life-changing than any of them could have expected. Enid and Rebecca are two lifelong friends. Having just graduated from high school, the girls are at a loss with what to do for the rest of their lives. Looking for a way to waste their time, the two girls answer a personal ad posted by Seymour, a very lonely man. The prank oddly enough becomes a friendship between Enid and Seymour. As the summer goes on, some relationships grow and others wither but does antyhing really change?

Based on the Daniel Clowes comic book of the same name, GHOST WORLD is an underappricated classic starring Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson and Steve Buscemi.

Join us before and after the film for a collectors' swap. Whether you want to unload comic books, records, video games or - yes, little ceramic angels, you can hang out with fellow collectors in our lobby and trade treasures - just like on the playground when you used to swap baseball cards and POGs.
