Tonight the Cine Noir Film Society will be showcasing Scopitone Mania at American Playground in Brooklyn off Franklin Ave. You’re probably asking, “Scopitone what?” Which is exactly what we were thinking when the local video store dude handed us this flyer. But don’t worry, it wasn’t a random act of kindness, it was totally relevant because we we’re wearing our fav tee of — and we promise to never mention her again after this because we know you’re sick of hearing about how awesome she is — Francoise Hardy. Turns out Scopitone Mania is a whole evening of 60’s French Pop and Vegas Lounge shorts from French film company, Scopitone, and just so you really get into it we’re gonna summarize the flyer with exclamatory quotes: “adult congregated establishments!” “Bikini clad showgirls!” “Go-Go riffic risqué!” Now those are selling points.
