“The Telephone Book” at 92Y Tribeca

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Look, I’m not a big film person. I like movies… some mainstream, some a bit more obscure. But I’m not some film snob. I don’t discriminate; I’ll see anything. So when my roommate told me about this screening, I thought I’d share.

“The Telephone Book,” a 1971 gem, is screening tonight at 92Y Tribeca. The film is about naughty little Alice and her search through Manhattan for an obscene caller. She scans the white pages to find this mysterious man and on the way encounters all that Manhattan had to offer in the early 70s. Right. There will also be a Q & A with the producer of the film, Merv Bloch. Tickets are $12… still very affordable… and a bargain for this piece of NY underground.

A recent transplant from Orange County, California, Quincey is in the big city with an Empire State Building-sized craving for culture... and learning that "free" part of freelance. Having been a high school English teacher for the last few years, she sadly knows the penny pinching lifestyle all too well. She's got a freakishly adorable dachshund named Walter Matthau and she really enjoys taking a bite out of this Big Apple everyone keeps talking about. Quincey may look straight outta the 'burbs, but.. well, yeah, she's straight outta the 'burbs.
