Opening Night at the Village East; Ignore the New York Times

July 17, 2010

TO AGE OR NOT TO AGE opened last night at the Village East Cinema on 12th Street and 2nd Avenue.  Director, Robert Kane Pappas, led a Q&A following the 5:30 pm and 7:45 pm shows.

The audience loved the film and asked a wide range of questions until they were ushered out by the Village East staffers.

A couple of curious events:  outside in the theater hall after the Q&A ended, the director  and producer were approached by a quiet mannered audience member, who volunteered

 “ I must tell you, I read the Times review, and just saw the film, and that review had nothing to do with this film. Very strange”.

A second associate entered the bathroom as two patrons were conversing: one said

“This movie’s great – thank God we didn’t listen to that stupid New York Times review”.

The moral of the story, don’t be put off by a malevolent review.  Join Robert again tonight after the 5:30 pm and 7:45 pm show and see for yourself.

Loved it. The after-discussion was lively and smart.
