Exit Through the Gift Shop - August 9, 2017
Arthouse @ NYLO
In an effort to activate our space and engage the local community, we are rolling out a program in-situ about all-things-art. ARTHOUSE @ NYLO will continue its silent film screening series with Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010) about the infamous, shadowy British graffiti street artist Banksy, who has literally left his mark on cities throughout the world. He comes in contact with Thierry Guetta, a Los Angeles-based Frenchman who videotapes various underground art escapades, and later is transformed into an art phenomenon dubbed "Mr. Brainwash." Rhys Ifans narrates an overlapping documentary where the line between what is real and what might be fake blurs, as modern art and celebrity are put under the microscope.
Individual headsets will be provided by SoundOff™ for a fully immersive experience. Ticket includes one of two unique specialty cocktails inspired by the film and a box of popcorn.
The back-to-back screenings take place Wednesday, August 9th at 6:30PM and 9:30PM in the NYLO Library-turned-Screening-Room. To secure a spot, please reserve online. Thank you!
[Rated R for some language] Run time: 1hr 27min
