UpComing EVENT APRIL 22 @ the Crest


Opens the Crest Friday, April 22nd

Opening Night to Benefit Verge Center for the Arts

The Crest Theatre is proud to announce the exclusive engagement of Bill Cunningham New York starting on Friday, April 22 through Thursday, April 28. This is the latest film in the Verge Center for the Arts quarterly screening at the Crest.

Opening night, which benefits the Verge Center for the Arts, begins with a Trunk Show in the Crest Theatre lobby featuring local boutiques and designers including Bows and Arrows, Modaspia,Crimson & Clover, Thunderhorse, and Babyfloss, while DJ Hailey provides ambience in the main house followed by the premiere screening of BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK and a post screening panel discussion with fashion bloggers RQ Bella (Sac Street Style), Lorena Beightler (Sac Cycle Chic) and Kari Shipman (Juniper James).

“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

THE TRUNK SHOW WHICH WE WE WILL BE THERE SELLING SOME JEWELRY AND OTHER STUFF  begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Crest Theatre lobby. The film begins at 8:00 p.m. in the Crest’s main theatre followed immediately by the panel discussion. Tickets are $15 general, $12 for seniors and students.
