We miss seeing you at the movies! While the John & Nancy Hughes Theater is closed for the time being, we thought we would bring you the next best thing–virtual theater.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Told in Bill Cunningham’s own words from a recently unearthed six-hour 1994 interview, the iconic street photographer and fashion historian chronicles, in his customarily cheerful and plainspoken manner, moonlighting as a milliner in France during the Korean War, his unique relationship with First Lady Jackie Kennedy, his four decades at The New York Times and his democratic view of fashion and society. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, The Times of Bill Cunningham features incredible photographs chosen from over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from Cunningham.

“A snapshot of a life that leaves you grateful for having encountered it.”

– Variety

““The minute Bill Cunningham starts talking in this charming documentary is the minute you fall in love with him.”

– RogerEbert.com

“A unique New York story”

– The Hollywood Reporter
