West End Cinemas: "Basquiat"

Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, 3 p.m.

Join us at West End Library for a screening of Basquiat!

Living in extreme poverty in Brooklyn, a talented graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, dreams of becoming a great artist, rising through the rich New York City art scene of the 1970s and ‘80s. His work earns him the plaudits of critics and fellow artists, and establishes him as a leader of neo-Expressionist painting. As his star rises, he develops a relationship with celebrated artist Andy Warhol, but Basquiat’s life of tumult, most notably his addiction to heroin, threatens to strip him of all that he’s accomplished.

Basquiat is rated R, and should end around 4:50 pm.
