January 31st, at “An evening with Director Robert Downey”, the legendary director was interviewed by Glenn Kenny, a film critic whose work has been in The New York Times, RogerEbert.com and the Criterion Collection.

We screened Robert Downey’s landmark 1969 film, “Putney Swope”, a comic satire about the advertising industry.
