Hey, Thank you all for the suggestions regarding this exhibition. I will post more info on the films, screen times, guests, etc., when I lock the films down and close in on the date(s).

You can see from the list below, it's a mix of genres and possibilities. Some are difficult to get a hold of due to being out of print or having no distribution. The official exhibition is Raymond Pettibon: The Punk Years 1978-1986 and it will be November 13, 2010-January 2, 2011.
