BAM is screening "Dirty Old Town" today at 4:30, 6:50 and 9:30. (Find more details here.) The no-budget fictional film finds Billy Leroy with 72 hours to save Billy's Antiques from becoming a Starbucks.
Today, the Voice called it a "Low-Budget Ode to No-Budget NY." And per W magazine, "the result is a vibrant, visceral portrait of the streets of New York at their most sublime."And from NYPress, "'Dirty Old Town' isn’t really about the fantastic cast of non-actors the producers have unearthed, but the bits of the city being willfully forgotten."
