Tonight! Ghost World at the Schlafly Bottleworks
Ghost World, the 2001 movie based on Daniel Clowes' graphic novels, will be screening tonight at the Schlafly Bottleworks as part of its Strange Brew: Cult Films series. $4 gets you in, and the film starts at 8 p.m. Starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson, the film's use of music is superb and suitably noir. Here's a scene featuring the twinkly sounds of "A Smile and a Ribbon," from the 1950s sister act Patience and Prudence.
