“dead poets society” TONIGHT in hudson, nyc, brooklyn, and wherever you can have one!!
ask and ye shall receive.
my friends from the UK, secret cinema, showed “dead poets society” all over their part of the world last night, and tonight, they are coming over here for three screenings they’ve helped coordinate throughout NY state.
a few photos from last night (attended by over 3,000 people across 7 venues, in aid of the mental health charity Mind)…
neil and i are teaming up last minute with Melissa auf der Maur and her amazing basilica hudson event space to present the film close to midnight. ALSO: we need 10 male actors to join us there in hudson for it…if you’re interested and can definitely come, please email eftihiast[AT]gmail[DOT]com ASAP for additional info.
…there are two NYC-area locations, as well.
i know this is short notice, but please come pay homage to robin williams in style.
suggested donation for the events is $10, with all proceeds going to NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness).
