If you live or love Bushwick, chances are you’ve ended up at House of Yes, the event space that holds magical circus acts and aerial classes. Just off of the Jefferson L stop, housing our fave falafel spot, Queen of Falafel, House of Yes is one of the best places to party hard in the neighborhood.
In the wake of Bowie’s death, just a mere two weeks ago, HoY started hosting Little Cinema‘s immersive pop up of films starring Bowie himself. The night starts off pretty easy: Little Cinema puts on a film that stars Bowie, while a dance party breaks out during said screening; and live music and spoken word are performed throughout the night. Past screenings at the whimsical hall included Labyrinth and The Man Who Fell To Earth. A little skeptical about how it all works? Check out this clip from the Labyrinth screening!
Tonight’s screening is one that only true Bowie fans know: The Prestige. Full disclosure, I’ve never watched The Prestige, but I know that it’s the better one of two magician movies of 2006, *ahem* I’m looking at you, The Illusionist.
In The Prestige, Bowie plays the Serbian-American inventor/engineer, Nikola Tesla. But aside from watching the rock star act with grace, tonight’s event is a little special. Along with the dancing, this event will have a magic show put on by the one and only Adam Cardone. Cool fact: Cardone even consulted on The Prestige!
So come one, come all, to The Immersive Prestige at House of Yes! If you wear a top hat or a cap to the event, you’ll get a free drink! Tickets are $11.35 and you can purchase them here. The Bowie party start at 8:00pm, and will last about two hours, unless everyone keeps dancing to “Let’s Dance!” all night long.
