Girl's Night Out @ The Belcourt / Screening of Bill Cunningham, NY: April 26, 2011

If you're not headed to the Nashville Symphony for the Marchesa fashion show, you MUST attend this event! The Belcourt Theatre is hosting a Girl's Night Out followed by a screening of Bill Cunningham, NY. You'll start off at Sunset Grill at 5:30 then head over to one of the most anticipated fashion movies of the year. Here is a synopsis of the film I received from Haylee Waddey Hall, Marketing & Development Director at the Belcourt Theatre:

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirĂ©es for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

“CRITICS’ PICK! Celebratory, humorous and often touching!
Captures one of New York’s most appealing characters!”
–New York magazine

“Fascinating! A must-see!”
–The Sartorialist

“A great documentary for a deserving fashion legend.”
–Mark Mikin, Esquire online

Seriously, watch the movie trailer for Bill Cunningham, NY, and tell me you're not geeking out...
