Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls at Filmmakers’ Cinematheque

New York: Filmmakers’ Cinematheque, 1966. Offset. 8 1/2 x 11 in. Very good; light toning and slight bump resulting in small crease and chip to bottom right corner. Item #5684

Flyer advertising screening of Warhol’s cult classic Chelsea Girls. Shot at the Chelsea Hotel, featuring Warhol superstars and New York luminaries with a soundtrack by the Velvet Underground, Chelsea Girls is emblematic of the New York underground and the avant garde art scene at the time. At nearly three hours long, the film is presented in split-screen with one side in black and white and one in color, representing the mundane activities captured in color versus the darker, sexual story told in black and white.

This flyer, with bold and simple type, is for screenings of the film on October 19 and 25, 1966, just a month after the film’s premiere.
