Documentary Screening: American Autumn – Occupy Wall Street may not be camping out at Zuccotti Park anymore, but they have been making their presence felt in Queens over the past few weeks. Protesters were most recently seen near the CitiCorp building in Long Island City, and there have been “town squares” in Jackson Heights and Astoria as well. In an attempt to let more people learn more about the OWS movement, Occupy Astoria and Long Island City is screening the documentary American Autumn at the Church of the Redeemer in Astoria on Tuesday night at 7 pm. The movie has been billed as “an inside looking out view of the occupy movement,” and promises to be an interesting watch. (more…)

The new artist collective, Mission to (dit)Mars is holding their inaugural meeting on Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30-9:30pm at Alewife in LIC. This should be a fun time, and a great opportunity for Queens artists to meet each other, share ideas, and make connections. By the way, Alewife serves up delicious food, so definitely try some of the menu items (their fries are amazing and their beer list is particularly epic). (more…)
