Independent distributor Milestone Films informed us that the IFC Center will host On the Bowery as part of its “20 for 20” program, a 20-week tribute to the company on its 20th anniversary.  Limited engagements will run between April 1 to 3. Not content with just temporary screenings?  Well, you’re in luck.  The documentary will become available at year end as part of a new Lionel Rogosin BluRay box set. There will be several bonus features, including a film from 1931 (Street of Forgotten Men) and one from the 1970s (Bowery Men’s Shelter).
