Enjoy bottomless mimosas and brunch with the likes of radio 1190 as a fashion show unfolds before your eyes in Henderson’s Lounge. After you’ve consumed enough champagne and orange juice to put you into a semi-drunken stupor, enjoy a private screening of the acclaimed documentary “Bill Cunningham New York.”
“We threw the same party last year and we’ve gotten feedback that it was the most fun Reel Social Club event to date (besides Summer Scream at Lakeside, of course),” says Bloom. “Rolling out of bed and into the Denver Film Center//Colfax for 4 hours of unlimited mimosas and entertainment is the perfect way to spend any Saturday.”
From the website:
“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 grace. — (C) Zeitgeist films
