ABOUT THE FILM-
“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 soirées 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. Advance tickets go on sale Friday April 1 at the Crest Theatre Box Office, Phono Select and tickets.com.
