Five Corners_MOMI The Museum of the Moving Image will be doing a screening of Five Corners on Friday, October 9, with John Turturro, Kevin Corrigan, and John Patrick Shanley in person. The film is set in the Bronx, but it was filmed right here in Astoria, on 18th Street, between Astoria Blvd and Astoria Park South. Five Corners is an American independent film whose many fans include the actor Kevin Corrigan. Corrigan hosts this special rare screening of director Tony Bill’s 35mm print, with actor John Turturro and the award-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley.

I want to win these tickets because I have been working so hard since moving to NYC that I haven’t gotten a chance to attend any of these awesome events at the Museum yet! I finally have a night off and there’s nothing else I’d rather do! I’m a film junkie :)

Sincerely,
Over-worked

That’s NYC for you. When I was working in Manhattan FT or even
in Queens later, I had little time or energy for tons of post-work
film events, although sometimes I’d manage it, or concerts,
even worse, since you know you’ll be up all night anyway. I just
screened Five Corners last night, hadn’t seen it in years, it’s
a good film, disturbing, not really great, but solid. I used to live
in Astoria but strangely never spent time at the park in those days.
Too busy eating bagels on Ditmars. Blvd. and sleeping!
Or trapped on the N train. Etc. etc. Looks like I missed this
contest, ah well.
