150 Years on Film


BAM–that cultural powerhouse that brings us amazing concerts like Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, great independent films all year (and especially during the upcoming BAMcinemaFest) and acclaimed theater like the current revival of The Caretaker–is celebrating its 150th year as the nation’s oldest performing arts center. Monday night, as part of its yearlong anniversary celebrations, it will be screening BAM150 for free at 8:30pm. The documentary by Michael Sládek (Con Artist) takes a look back at BAM’s watershed performances through archival footage and interviews with Laurie Anderson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chuck Davis, Mark Morris, Steve Reich, Isabella Rossellini, Robert Wilson, Wim Wenders, and other legendary artists who have graced its stages and helped give Brooklyn its cultural cred.
