Passing Strange gets another week on screen at IFC

poster_passingstrangeGood news: If you haven’t seen Spike Lee‘s movie version of the fantastic rock musical Passing Strange on the big screen yet — or if you want to see it again  — you have another week to do just that. The run at the IFC Center in the Village has been extended another week.

Stew, who wrote the show with partner-in-art Heidi Rodewald, urged fans during early screenings to encourage their friends to see the movie, hinting that the announced two-week run could easily be extended if response was good. It looks like he was right. There were long lines of fans waiting to get into many of the prime shows, and now IFC has given it another week, through Sept. 8.

This movie is awesome. And while you can always catch it via on-demand cable or wait until it airs on PBS next year, there’s nothing like seeing it in a theater, surrounded by other people. The group experience adds to the impact of the movie. Don’t miss it!
