Sita Comes to Denver to Sing the Blues

If you, like Roger Ebert, have heard about the intensely indie oddball feature-length animation Sita Sings the Blues, then you don’t need me to tell you what “the greatest breakup story ever told” is all about or why it’s such a phenomenon.

And if you’ve been sighing over the unfortunate copyright circumstances that make this film the most intriguing piece of Flash cinema you’ll never get to see, rejoice! Nina Paley has a plan to give her astonishing cartoon gem the distribution it deserves, the upshot of which is, you get to see at the Starz Film Center.

This isn’t its first time playing at the little theater under the Tivoli smokestack on Auraria. But it’ll definitely be my first time seeing it. I’ll be there tonight at the 7:00 PM showing. Say hi if you’re there!

If you can’t make it tonight, you’ve got most of the nights of this week until the final showing on Thursday, July 2. Pick a date and buy your tickets online!

And, while you’re at it, if you’re so inclined, become a supporting member of the Denver Film Society. Members get discounted tickets to any film ($6.00), occasional opportunities to attend free screenings ($0.00), and the warm fuzzies of knowing that you’re playing a part in keeping independent cinema alive in Denver (priceless).

Besides, Starz got beer! Mmm, beer. Can yer ol’ AMC and Century Theaters say that? Didn’t think so.

    You didn’t mention the popcorn with real butter.

    True! It’s my husband who’s the real popcorn connoisseur, not me.

    However, I *should* mention that a membership with the Denver Film Society gets you $0.25 off each concession stand item you buy, which includes your bag of Reeses Pieces, your hot dog, your nachos, AND your popcorn-with-real-butter. (But not your beer.)

    (About which: the St. Bridget’s Porter is quite yummy.)

    And furthermore! All new memberships and upgrades to existing memberships will, for a limited time only, be matched with funds generously donated by the Gay & Lesbian Fund For Colorado.

    (And furthermore! Sita Sings The Blues was everything wonderful you have ever heard about it, and more. It is a thing of great beauty and absurdity. GO SEE IT!)
