Last night I joined Losers (that's meant lovingly...you know, people from Loser's Lounge) Joe McGinty, Julian Maile, Joanna Choy, Julie Klausner, and friends at McCarren Park Pool for a screening of Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains, from 1981. Starring Diane Lane. Written by Jonathan Demme and Nancy Dowd. Directed by Lou Adler.
Look! There's an inflatable screen!
And you can sneak food in. But not a 40oz. Julian ended up downing one before coming into the place because they wouldn't let him in with it. Ha! They also sell food - hot dogs, mini-burgers, mac&cheese, water, and soda. The screenings themselves are free. So cool!
There was also water in some areas of the pool...
While waiting for the movie to start, we got to see/hear live music from this band...the Cheatin' Hearts, I believe the called themselves. :)
The movie was great - sassy chicks, crazy hair, tender moments, shower sex, betrayal, forgiveness, boom shot, abrupt ending.
I wonder how many people in 1981 dressed like these characters for Halloween? I'm thinking of basing a self-portrait on it...it'd be super-fun.
Yeah. Movie was fun. Even more so in a pool. And even more than that watching it with a bunch of musicians.
After the movie we all went over to a cool little bar called Enid's for drink, conversation, and videogames.
I'm tellin' ya...so many fun things to do in NYC!
