Loosers In Manhattan

According to the Times:

92ND STREET Y 1395 Lexington Avenue. Sunday at 6:30 p.m., a screening of “Loose Change,” a documentary about the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, followed by a discussion with its filmmakers, Dylan Avery, Jason Bermas and Korey Rowe: $25. Monday at 7:30 p.m.


Twenty-five bucks to see Loose Change? Oh, well, it may turn out to be a bargain; I heard yesterday that after winning his "Best Documentary", Al Gore is now charging $175,000 to give his standard speech on Global Warming.

But its all about the victims. I am sure they are only charging $25 each in order to pay for the theatre...right?

pathetic, borderline criminal.

TAM:(

"a documentary about the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11"? Are the LTW morons so dishonest they to obscure the true nature of the film to get people to come see it?

BTW, the deadline to submit films for Cannes is about two weeks away. So we should soon be getting the final version of Loose Change, or an admission that it won't be at Cannes, right?

Hmm. Anyone live up there? I know the 92nd St. Y is slightly to the left of Dennis Kucinich, but I find it difficult to believe that they would sanction this if they knew the content.

Are they showing this at a movie theatre?

A sports arena?

I mean surely a screening of LC would bring out THOUSANDS of people.

Hey, isn't the NY Times part of the conspiracy? How come they allowed this notice to use the term "documentary" without a qualifier?

Just more lies. It ain't gonna happen:

1. The 92nd Street Y's website says: "This event is no longer available". Can't confirm this today, as the Y is a Jewish organization and thus is closed today.

2. Mr. Avery says on his blog that he's leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow.

The concert hall mentioned in The Times story costs $5,000 to rent and seats 900. Those morons would have been lucky to pull in 50.
