DIRTY OLD TOWN Film is now available on Itunes and to celebrate and commemorate the end of “Billy’s Antiques and Props” the real store that the fictional film is about with a big party. Billy’s a LES neighborhood staple for the past 30 years closed in January and will be torn down this weekend and will be the location for the event.
A Gonzo Narrative by young trio Jenner Furst, Daniel B. Levin and Julia Willoughby Nason. Produced by Paul Sevigny. From Blowback Productions and Executive Producer Marc Levin. Spun from the New York Underground and Cult Documentary “Captured” this Indie Feature is a Post 911 Postcard for a place, physical, spiritual and emotional, that has moved on. Down on the Bowery, with 72 hours to pay the rent, the iconic Billy’s Antiques and Props draws in a cast of Bohemian Dinosaurs, young and old, scrambling to survive in a Dark Comedy / Neo-Realist Tone Poem that captures the last breath, a fleeting vapor, of old New York. After Theatrical Releases in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Berlin, and special VIP premieres in London and Paris, the film was picked up by Matson Films for a broader US theatrical and DVD release (DVD 03.15.12). As well as a digitally release by Filmbuff, launching on Itunes Tuesday, March 6th 2012. See the only film to ever capture the essence of this infamous gathering place and come celebrate the final night before it is gone forever.
