Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story

Thu, Mar 7
7:00 pm Q&A

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Followed by a Q&A with legendary superfans Dennis and Lois.

Director: Steve Sullivan Run Time: 100 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2018

Chris Sievey’s life was a subversive piece of performance art. His greatest creation, a paper mâché headed Frank Sidebottom, became a manic and insane star obscuring his own creator who descended into alcoholism and bankruptcy. The Frank Sidebottom story tells the twisted tale of a split personality, exploring the extraordinary secret life of a songwriter, artist, comedian and wayward genius.

Dennis and Lois met in 1975 at CBGB’s, bonding over a shared passion for music for more than 40 years. In that time, they have become superfan legends in the NYC music scene and brought Frank Sidebottom to the states for his only US performances.
