1,200 Filmgoers Will Dress in Blue to Honor Bill Cunningham at a Special Movie Screening

Featuring the Richard Press-directed documentary ‘Bill Cunningham New York.’

To commemorate the late street style photographer Bill Cunningham, there will be a special screening of his documentary where members of the audience are invited to dress in blue, the symbolic color of Cunningham’s go-to uniform. Entitled Bill Cunningham New York, the 2011 film will be brought to the silver screen again by NewportFILM. The host of the special event has requested that all 1,200 guests follow the blue dress code to pay tribute to the legendary artist. As NewportFILM’s executive director Terri Conners explains:

When you think of Bill, you immediately think of him in that blue jacket. Every review of the film I’ve read always mentions the blue jacket. When we were trying to think of a theme, we were getting all creative and fun. And then all of a sudden I was like, ‘How about blue – just blue?’ We figured it would be a simple, but beautiful visual to see all of this blue up against the ocean on this big, huge green lawn. We wanted to make this an homage to his signature blue jacket. So we’ll see.

Scheduled at 8:15 p.m. on August 4, you can join the screening for free at Newport’s OceanCliff Lawn. Head over here for more information. You can also watch the trailer of Bill Cunningham New York below:
