Skip your ordinary Tuesday night of sushi takeout and spin class to head to the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg tonight for a fun weeknight out. A free screening of the new movie BOY (which will open in NYC this Friday) will begin at 8 PM, followed by a Michael Jackson dance party in the front bar at 10 PM.
BOY was written and directed by Oscar nominee Taika Waititi (Flight of the Conchords, Eagle vs Shark) who also stars in the film. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010, where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. It since has done well in New Zealand, where it was released to much acclaim. It will get an American release on March 2, but you'll be able to see it a bit sooner than that (and for free) tonight!
