The Museum of Moving Image Strikes Again

by Art Fag City on June 8, 2006 Events

If the Museum of Moving Image is not on your radar here is your chance to put it there. I received three press releases from them today detailing upcoming events, and all of them look awesome!

Friday, June 9, 7:30 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image
Screening: Hidden Inside Mountains , discussion to follow with artist, musician and filmmaker Laurie Anderson.

Who knows what this movie is – something dream like, with violins, bells, and dog barks. It’s made by the same woman who stood on a street cornor playing her violin while perched on a block of ice and wearing ice skates. Let’s just say I’m interested.

Friday June 16, 7:30 Museum of the Moving Image
35 Avenue at 36 Street, Astoria, New York 11106
Screening location:
ImaginAsian Theater, 239 East 59th Street

Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello attend the preview screening of “Strangers with Candy“.
The down side to this prequel to the original cult classic series is that Sedaris has taken a hiatus from her column Sedaratives at the Believer, which has now been extended into the summer. On a positive note: More Strangers with Candy: The story of an ex drug addict who returns to high school after a life of substance abuse. Also, you will get to hear Sedaris talk, which is always entertaining. The last time I saw her interviewed, she spoke at length about her “friend” make out sessions with Matthew Broderick and her plans to make bacon grease ice cubes to give to her family for Christmas.

Matthew Modine “in person”

Star Matthew Modine will be in attendance to discuss this seminal movie about a journalist who must come to terms with the brutality of war. The screening is part of a month long Stanley Kubrick series which finally provides viewers with a chance to erase their sanity by watching the director’s life work.
