Art House Theater Day celebrates the art house theater and the cultural role it plays in a community. It is a day to recognize the year-round contributions of film and filmmakers, patrons, projectionists, and staff, and the brick and mortar theaters that are passionately dedicated to providing access to the best cinematic experience.

STARRING: Danny Fields, Tommy Ramone, Jann Wenner, Iggy Pop, Rufus Wainwright
This special sneak preview screening is in celebration of Art House Theater Day. Tickets are FREE for all Avon members. Tickets are $12 for non-members.
Once dubbed the underground “mayor of New York,” Danny Fields (née Feinberg) has played a pivotal role in the music and culture of the late 20th century, working for The Doors, Cream, Lou Reed, and Nico, and managing groundbreaking artists like The Stooges, MC5 and The Ramones. The new documentary DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to “hippie yenta” at Warhol’s Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to punk pioneer and beyond. Led by Fields’ hilariously droll commentary, the film features outrageous anecdotes recounted by Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Judy Collins, Tommy Ramone, Lenny Kaye, Wayne Kramer, and John Cameron Mitchell, and many others. They tell the wild story of a man whose taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, turned out to have been prescient.
RUNNING TIME: 108 minutes
Members can RSVP to Laura, please indicate if you’re interested in joining me for lunch after the film.
