Greenpointers! We have a pair of tickets to the sold out screening of Suspiria at Dobbin St tomorrow evening and we’d love to offer them to one lucky reader!

Suspiria: A Unique Hybrid Screening Event

On Thursday night, Dobbin St., will transform into an immersive homage to Dario Argento’s 1977 horror film, Suspiria.

Join us for a projected screening of the film within our site-specific installation inspired by Dario Argento’s colorful vision and cinematography. Furthermore, the classical music ensemble The Nouveau Classical Project will perform, taking inspiration from the film’s original score, composed by the Italian band Goblin.

This unique hybrid event kicks off Dobbin St’s forthcoming program of cultural events designed to support and cultivate the arts community of North Brooklyn.

To enter the giveaway, please comment on this post and we’ll randomly select the winner!  

Contest closes tonight, Wednesday, at 11:59pm EDT and winners will be notified Thursday morning.
