Screen Slate has been presenting curated screenings around NYC for 10 years, including events at Anthology Film Archives, Spectacle and Roxy Cinema. To celebrate they're throwing a weekend-long anniversary party Roxy Cinema from August 13-15, featuring favorite films that they've shown in the past. All will be screened on either 35mm or 16mm.
The weekend includes an August 14 (8 PM) screening of Dave Markey's classic documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke which chronicles Sonic Youth's 1991 European tour with Nirvana that happened just months before the release of Nevermind. The film also features performances by Dinosaur Jr, Babes in Toyland, Gumball, and The Ramones, as well as cameos from by Mudhoney, Bob Mould, and Courtney Love. After the film, Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley and Lee Ranaldo will discuss the film with WFMU's Brian Turner.
