Don't have a mid-week meltdown! Here's something to do tonight to forget how rough your humpday was.
Meet a space cowboy!! Or better yet, the actor/director/musician Cory McAbee! Cory is coming to Champaign TODAY for a meet-and-greet, made free to the public by
the support of an Urbana Public Arts Grant. This is a part of the Champaign-Urbana Film Society's Visiting Filmmaker Series.
Cory is best known for The Billy Nayer Chronicles (stemmed from his band The Billy Nayer Show), Sundance Film Festival's first multi-media event in 1995. Then, in 2001, for The American Astronaut, a story about a space cowboy! Okay, it is more serious and Westerny-cool than that. But he is a cowboy of sorts, and there is space involved. A perfect combination if you ask me. Check IMDB to see the full synopsis and its 7.1/10 rating. I'll be honest, I've enjoyed a lot of movies with a much lower rating...
Meet him tonight at Crane Alley in Urbana at 8pm. Desserts and non-alcoholic beverages will be served :)
