Happy summer y'all! Please join us on Saturday, August 17th for Carmine Street Guitars, the new film by veteran documentarian Ron Mann (Comic Book Confidential, Grass). The film is a behind-the-scenes look at the Greenwich Village staple that seems out of place and out of time in the now-trendy neighborhood. At Carmine Street Guitars, custom guitar maker Rick Kelly and apprentice Cindy Hulej build handcrafted instruments out of reclaimed wood for customers ranging from Lou Reed and Bob Dylan to Patti Smith and Jim Jarmusch. For this screening we're teaming up with our friend's shop, Ardent Instruments, which is conveniently located in the Fell Building (just a few storefronts down from Rainbow Bakery). So come get cozy among all the guitars and see the film Rolling Stone calls a "love letter to New York, to the bohemians and musicians who still live there come hell or high water, to the art of crafting a damn fine customized Stratocaster, to taking pride in your work, to shooting the shit and most importantly, to finding a place for fellow freaks and misfits to call home.”

*Note*: Due to limited seating we highly recommend nabbing your tickets ahead of time here to guarantee a spot! To accommodate as many folks as we can we will have two showtimes. We hope to see you there!
