Frank Perry's Last Summer @ Cinema Nolita tonight

As part of its ongoing screening series, one which has wisely moved from Sunday to Saturday nights, Cinema Nolita will screen Frank Perry's 1969 summertime coming of age tale Last Summer. Its the cheapest movie ticket in town ($3!) and that comes with an assortment of goodies besides Perry's terrific movie.

Starring a very young Barbara Hershey, the film is an earnest look at four adolescents spending a summer on Fire Island. They form an insulated gang for themselves, in which to exercise both their carefree adolescent agenda and plot their emerging adulthood. Yet, as is always the case with growing up, their assumptions about who they will become prove less reliable than they could ever imagine. So if you're in NYC and not up to trekking to BAM for your late night movie fix tonight (more on that in the next post), then do yourself a favor and get over to 178 Mulberry St at 11:30.
