11/7 "Grey Gardens" @ Clinton St. Theater- Little Edie's 95th Birthday!

 "It's very difficult to keep the line between the past and the present. You know what I mean? It's awfully difficult"

In 1975 the documentary Grey Gardens the story of an elderly woman and her 56 year old daughter, former members of New York society and relatives to "American Royalty"captivated the country with it's unflinching gaze at their adapting to misfortune in a rotting mansion in the East Hamptons.

This story would have faded in to the archives had it not been for the electric presence of the daug
hter Edith Bouvier Beale. Better known as
"Little Edie", Miss Beale engrossed audiences with her dynamic story telling,comic flair,heartbreaking honesty about the world at large and her own
suspended dreams. Her unusual style propelled her to the forefront of popular culture where still, 37 years after the fact she is revered as high priestess of the eccentrics,a feminist vanguard and fashion icon.

November 7th, 2012 will mark the 95th anniversary of Little Edie's birth and The Clinton St. Theater is celebrating this STAUNCH lady with
2 screenings of Grey Gardens(1975) complete with cake and hors d'oeuvres.
Costumes are encouraged and will most certainly be rewarded,however we kindly ask that you leave all cats and racoons at home.
