First of all, The Roxie is adorbs. Nestled between some of 16th Streets most beautiful sights (remind me to tell you about the tranny that offered to sell me her panties), it is a bastion of urban entertainment and really, truly always features a great line-up of flicks.
Buy your tix under the marquis, and a kindly [hip] ticket taker will guide you to one of the Roxie’s two viewing areas. Also, as luck would have it, your ticket stub will get you $1 off your next drink at Dalva, a raucous little speakeasy that spoons The Roxie! (Now that’s what I call rad!) Film specifics…. after the jump!
For closing night, we checked out “Limbo Lounge,” and … whoa. It was effing great, ya’ll. The acting was phenom, the plot was entertaining and thought provoking (without being all, “OMG WE ARE SO MUCH SMARTER THAN YOU WILL EVER BE!”), and the cinematography was top-notch. Most IndieFest flicks get played twice over the course of the festival, but this one was voted as an audience favorite so it earned one of the super-coveted closing night slots! Check out their website (linked above) for upcoming festival appearances.
Don’t be dismayed if you missed the fest! Upcoming films at the Roxie include: “Precious” (in case you missed this massively hyped Best Picture nominee) and “The Cove” (a documentary that sounds excellently impressive.) I will be there, and I will share my buttery popcorn.
