NextDor Movie Night: Sorry to Bother You

The movie night selection for July is Sorry to Bother You, which is part of Bayside Bowl's Rooftop Film Series. It's directed by Boots Riley, who is technically Jewish! His maternal grandmother was a German Jewish refugee who arrived at Ellis Island in April 1938. Riley describes the film as “an absurdist dark comedy with magical realism and science fiction, inspired by the world of telemarketing.”

We'll supply the challah, you'll supply the good vibes and a dairy vegetarian dish to share.

RSVP required. No RSVP, no challah.
