Okay, it’s not Asian cinema-related, but a fellow named Abe Goldfarb—who goes by the burlesque handle of Bastard Keith—is inaugurating a new series called The Bastard Keith Movie Club, wherein he will host a live commentary during a favorite “bad” movie, accompanied by burlesque dancers and lots of drinking. This is the kind of stuff we’re also into, and since Abe will be helping us with the New York Asian Film Festival 2011 (expect to see him on our stage at Lincoln Center introducing some movies), we wanted to help him out.
The first movie-skewering at the Bastard Keith Movie Club will take place on Wednesday, May 4th at 8:00 pm at Galapagos Art Space in Dumbo. The victim for the inaugural effort will be the notorious 1980 Cannon-produced musical travesty, THE APPLE. Directed by Israeli movie mogul Menahem Golan and starring Catherine Mary Stewart and a host of B-level stars who’ve since removed the film from their resumes, THE APPLE is the epitome of ill-conceived big-screen musicals: a futuristic disco science-fiction fantasy set in the far future of….1994! It’s also hilariously entertaining, and an appropriate choice for the first Movie Club entry.
Join us with Bastard Keith at the show and watch for a ticket giveaway via our Subway Cinema Newsletter very soon. Tickets for the show are available now, only $10 each! Less than a regular movie, and you get some naked ladies to go with it.
