Grace Jones, Queen of Everything (Via the Kitchen)
Dirty Looks: A One Man Show Monday February 8, 8 pm at The Kitchen: $10
So this one’s a little bit beyond this week, but we fear that if you don’t make plans quick-like, you’re gonna miss out. Tickets appear to be sold out online already, but the venue suggests that you contact them and hopefully they’ll have some availability at the door. DREAM BIG. Why? Because Grace Jones is worth it.
Just Labrynth. You know you love it. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you should probably go to this screening for reals. Because this is cultural knowledge you need—complete with David Bowie in full weirdo (read: Goblin King Jareth) regalia and Jennifer Connelly as a girl on the brink of womanhood. Also puppets. Lots of puppets.
Now you’ve finally made it through OITNB, maybe you’re ready for some big-screen action?
If Super Size Me, Food, Inc., Hungry for Change and the collected works of Michael Pollan have yet to convince you of the evilness of Big Food, why not hit up Fed Up? The tagline is “Congress says pizza is a vegetable,” and it only gets better from there. Brought to you by Katie Couric, Stephanie Soechtig and Laurie David (the producer behind An Inconvenient Truth), this doc delves into America’s obesity epidemic and the creepy corporations behind it. Apparently guaranteed to “change the way you eat forever.” So if you treasure your customary diet, maybe skip it… Thursday June 26, 11am, Village East Cinema (189 Second Ave), $7.50. LAST CHANCE!
