At a museum this weekend, a few friends and I happened to overhear a volunteer mention the film On the Bowery would be showing at Film Forum in the next few weeks.
Direct quote, “It was one of the most fascinating documentaries about New York City life I’ve ever seen.”
Just so happens, the film is playing as a double feature this Friday and Saturday (Jan. 11 & 12) with Connections, another film focusing on life on skid row in mid-century New York.
Looking forward to black and white Friday afternoon.
Okay, okay we were flat out eavesdropping, but this gentleman had some very interesting things to say. Anyway, thanks for the tip informative stranger.
