BAM Prepared to Skate by in February

I know that right about now there are dozens of Gotham cinephiles mouthbreathing to a 911 operator something along the lines of, "Oh my God... (Wheeze) ... Bela Tarr at BAM ... (Cough) ... Send help..." And more than a few lit types likely have their tweed in a twist about the Cinematek's Graham Greene film noir program. But these just-announced February happenings slump ashamedly in the shadow of another BAM event that -- by natural law -- can have no equal:

Can't wait for the new season of New York's own Gotham Girls Roller Derby to start? Come spend a night with your favorite speed demons as we present a special program of roller-skating themed shorts, clips, and much more! You'll see clips from classic Derby-exploitation films, rare shorts from the silent era, cartoons, and a sneak preview of an upcoming documentary on GGRD! Then join us afterwards for a party at [TBC] with free drinks courtesy of [TBC]. Featuring appearances by GGRD skaters & special guests!

Goddammit -- I should have known I wouldn't be able to stick to that New Year's resolution forbidding trips across the East River. Alas.
