This Saturday, May 11 at 8 pm at Millennium Film, check out the super 8 films of Katrina del Mar and Stephanie Gray. Gray will include a film of Magic Shoes before it closed and del Mar will screen not to be missed outtakes of her Girl Gang 2000 super 8 cult fave film with images of late 1990s East Village and LES in all its glory. de Mar will choose the outtakes at random and we hear there are old shots of Ray's Candy Store (not sure which will be shown!)
At: Millennium Film Workshop, 66 E 4th St (bet Bowery & 2nd Ave). Find the Facebook invite here.

My friend Frank Baez, founder of Cuando, lived in the "for rent" space above Yonah Shimmel in the 1970's. He paid $35.00 a month
