Selection + Selectors 008: An Evening With Charlie Ahearn, Volume III
Friday, November 6th - Doors 6:00PM/Screening 6:30PM - $15 Advance Tickets, $20 At Door

One of our best guest hosts, filmmaker Charlie Ahearn, joins us to premiere his latest film, Coney Island Rules, followed by several other of his personal favorite shorts. 

Last summer, Charlie captured Jeffrey Deitch’s curated Coney Art Walls in progress, featuring a series of prestigious visual artists (including Aiko, ROA, Futura, Kenny Scharf, Retna, Crash, Skewville, Jane Dickson, Ron English, Mr Cartoon, Kaves, El Seed, Marie Roberts and many more). An homage to New York’s latest vestige of a glittering Wonderland, freaky side show geeks and Spook-a-ramas, Coney Island Rules captures the beauty and wonderment of the seaside town. The film explores multiple themes and portrays Coney Island in a unique, new light.
Mr Ahearn will serve as guest host for the night, premiering this film as well as Book of Ibid Tompkins Square, featuring the artist Joe Lewis who will be flying in from L.A. for the evening. Mr Ahearn will round out the night with a series of his personal shorts and some incredible anecdotes in between. It promises to be an exceptional evening!Other films for the evening include:Las Vegas FlipClaudius on the One TrainEskalators on the One Train
