‘Grey Gardens’ tonight at the Play Circle

As part of its semester-long documentary series Real to Reel, WUD Film is hosting a screening of Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer and the Maysles Brothers’ Grey Gardens (1975) tonight at the Play Circle Theater in Memorial Union. The screening begins at 7:30PM and there’s no telling how crowded the theater may get—somewhere between “not at all crowded” and “shit, I’m sitting 6 ft. from the screen at a brutal angle.” Though I haven’t personally seen Grey Gardens, the film’s reputation certainly precedes it. Promises to be a bizarre and/or mesmerizing experience, as well as a tremendous appetizer for the cine-smorgasbord being offered up to UW students this weekend (more on this tomorrow).
