Last week's screening and pre-screening party was one of the best events of the summer ending where the film ended at this Lower East Side venue, 30 years later. See a few of the photos below of the guests, the crew from the actual movie and of course, the performers. (You know it was an amazing event when you have a "withdrawal" for days to come because you simply still want to be there.)
Have a look at the legends....
The man himself, Director Charile Ahern and Lady Pink
Fun Gallery founder, Patti Astor (one of the very first to show works from Keith Haring and Basquait among many others)
Lady Pink and Patti Astor
Futura and Scratch
Let the break dancing and show begin....
Fab 5 Freddie
AK47 and Carol
These guys promoted what true hip-hop was/is; peace, love and unity! Stressing it what is NOT, --like what's going on these days with the hate, violence and killings and just plain craziness. It was a seriously nice reality check for the younger people in the crowd from the masters who created the real scene - back in the day!
The cast on stage, everyone from the movie, center; Fab 5, Lee, entire gang!
