Another huge loss for downtown. It'll always be The Screening Room to me.
Originally known as The Screening Room (1996), this indie movie house survived a post Sept 11th world with a little help from Robert DeNiro. In 2003, it became Tribeca Cinemas. Last showing was in June of 2015. Photo by Mandy. #tc4ever #riptribecacinemas #savenyc #sbjsa #supportsmallbusiness #supportthearts
In a classic case of "the American public is stupid," the far-superior follow-up to "Shake It Up" stalled at No. 41 on the Billboard charts. But with lines like "You're so trachea-ress" and "the moonlight ain't so great," it remains one of their best songs ever. (The video's a classic, too.)

Anyone catch a Jon Moss-less Culture Club on "The Today Show" this morning? (Fear not: Moss is still in the band, just out with a back problem.) I knew their tour had been postponed because of Boy George's throat polyp, but I didn't realize the album ("Tribes") had also been. The band's playing the Beacon Theatre later this month and I'm still debating going: They were SO FLAWLESS at Radio City Music Hall back in '99 (for the horribly underrated "Don't Mind If I Do" tour) I'm not sure I wanna test fate again!
UPDATE: Yikes. Just dug this up. Boy's voice sounds pretty shredded.
