A night with Charlie Ahearn and his Hip Hop Shorts

Next week! Check out the next film in the Wythe Hotel series, an evening of Charlie Ahearn and his hop hop musical shorts (I can’t help but think of boxer shorts that have a sensor and play Bust a Move or something).
projekt:nyc in collaboration with the Art Directors Club (ADC) and Colab Projects presentSelections + Selectors, a series of film screenings held monthly at the Wythe Hotel in their private screening room. Each month, host J.L. Sirisuk will moderate an evening of powerful film content that will include screenings followed by conversations with subject matter loosely related to the content of each film. Nights will conclude with vinyl only DJ sets by some of the city’s best DJs.
Doors/Cocktails at 6:30pm
Screenings begin promptly at 7:30pm
