In just hours, Passing Strange will launch almost 450 fans on a cinematic journey at the Directors Guild Theater just down the block from Carnegie Hall in Midtown Manhattan. After the trip, director Spike Lee and co-creators Stew and Heidi Rodewald will talk with the audience about the show. Although not scheduled to be onstage, most of the members of the cast will be at the theater.

what I can do. There will be a standby line at the theater, as well, so one way or another, it’s probably worth the gamble.

If you can’t get into tonight’s show,  don’t worry. There’s another screening — albeit without the Q&A — at 10 p.m. tomorrow at the AMC Loews Village VII  in the East Village. The movie is also expected to have  a limited theatrical release later this year. And, as Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone? reported yesterday, the movie has been picked up by PBS for broadcast next year.

7 p.m. today. At Directors Guild Theater, 110 West 57th Street (between Sixth and Seventh avenues); sold out, some rush tickets available at the theater. (Also 10 p.m. Suday, May 3. AMC Village VII, 66 Third Ave.; rush tickets available.)
