About the Millennium Film Workshop

In our previous post, we noted the interesting performance exhibition happening at 66-68 E. Fourth St. tonight through Sunday ... it's taking place in part of the space that belonged to Millennium Film Workshop inside the La MaMa Annex Theater...

Back in January, Steven Thrasher at Runnin' Scared reported that the Millennium Film Workshop faced eviction from its longtime home on East Fourth Street after falling behind on rent with La MaMa ... he followed up the next day with a piece on La MaMa leaders saying that they believe in and support the Workshop's mission.

And that was the last we heard about the situation.

Anyway, as we learned, the Workshop is still in the basement under the LaMama Annex Theater, but they reconfigured their space. We understand that La Mama plans to rent the half that the Workshop vacated to someone else. One person with knowledge of the negotiations between the Workshop and La MaMa described it as a "positive" transition.
