We've come to count on The Standard for a lot of different essential items for South Beach survival: mini-cheeseburgers, spa treatments, poolside cocktails, etc., but who knew they were also projecting free kick-ass films on the last Monday of every month? Well, no one did because this is the first one in the series.
The Arthouse Film Series kicks off with The Universe of Keith Haring, a new documentary about the artist, featuring interviews and archival footage of 80's heroes Fab 5 Freddy, Grace Jones, and Madonna, as well as Yoko Ono, Jeffrey Deitch, Kim Hastreiter, David LaChappelle, Kenny Scharf, Carlo McCormick, Andy Warhol, Ann Magnuson, Tony Shafrazi, and many others conducted by Haring's authorized biographer. The film also features music by Haring's old buddy and NY house legend Junior Vasquez. Attendance also gets you free popcorn.
In short, this is the best thing to happen to Monday's in a long time.
