Culture Catch and Napapijri are pleased to continue our Film Salon series with a private VIP screening of After Hours with smart culture critic Kurt Loder on Wednesday, September 24th at 7 pm at the 149 Mercer Street (between Prince & Houston), NYC, 212-431-4490.
The 8th film of our monthly series, directed by Martin Scorsese (1985), celebrates the grittier side of New York's mid-80s culture. Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) is a word processor who experiences a hellish and seemingly endless night on the seedy streets of NYC's SoHo village; broke, frenzied and at his rope's end he is thrust into the increasingly upsetting and often outlandish lives of a variety of ensemble characters. A sequence of misfortunes, coupled with misunderstandings and tragedies threaten Paul's safety and sanity while he attempts to get back to his apartment, uptown.
Following the screening there will be a robust audience Q & A/discussion with Mr. Loder that will be taped for a future podcast. And we will co-host a private cocktail reception with our friends at AlwaysHungryNY.com prior to the screening.
