Help save Cinema Nolita!  Below is a schedule of events in the next week to raise money for the ailing neighborhood video store.


Please join us on Saturday, August 15th at 10 PM for a special screening to benefit Cinema Nolita. Legendary director, Abel Ferrara, will be on hand to present his celebrated 1992 film, Bad Lieutenant, at Anthology Film Archives. As part of a series of events designed to keep Cinema Nolita in business, Mr. Ferrara has agreed to be on hand to show the film and to do a brief (or maybe even not so brief) Q&A following the feature.  There is a $15 donation.

We’re throwing a special benefit concert/party on Monday, August 17th at Santos Party House. You should be there. It’s all to benefit Cinema Nolita and to keep a little neighborhood business afloat.  There is a $20 donation.

Store friends The Virgins will be performing followed by an Animal Collective DJ Set featuring Avey Tare, Geologist, and Deakin. Both bands are extremely busy (both are just back from Lollapalooza), but have been incredibly generous and donated their time and effort. Santos Party House has also been amazing in helping us set this up.

Also performing will be The Beets plus a few more special things will happen [which we are currently figuring out]. It’s going to be fun. It’s for a good cause.

Doors: 8 PM

The Beets: 8:45 – 9:45

The Virgins: 10:05 – 11:00

Animal Collective DJ Set: 11:00 – ??
