4th Friday Films with The Loft Cinema: Basquiat
July 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $5
Jean-Michel Basquiat (Jeffrey Wright) was just an antisocial street kid writing graffiti on alley walls before he became part of Andy Warhol’s (David Bowie) eccentric art scene. Soon, the talented tagger became a widely praised figure in the New York City art world. As in many cases, however, fame came at a high price, and Basquiat’s rapid progression from cardboard boxes to penthouses was also accompanied by the loss of friendship, love, and, eventually, his life. (Dir. by Julian Schnabel, 1996, Rated R)
