Thora Birch: In Person at 'Ghost World' Tribute

How I wish I could be in San Diego this weekend! In conjunction with Reading Cinemas and Fantagraphics Books, the San Diego Film Critics Society will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Terry Zwigoff’s 2001 film Ghost World with a 35 mm screening at 9 p.m., Saturday, July 23, at Reading Gaslamp Cinemas in downtown San Diego. The screening will take place during Comic-Con, the world’s largest comic book and pop culture convention. Tickets for the event are only $5, and Comic-Con badges are not required.

Upon its release, the San Diego Film Critics Society awarded Ghost World with Best Picture honors at the end of the year, and gave Zwigoff its annual Best Director award. The film also earned Zwigoff and Clowes a Best Adapted Screenplay award, and lead actress Thora Birch was named Best Actress.

Thora Birch and several members of the San Diego Film Critics Society will be on hand for the screening and will host a discussion after the movie. Reading Gaslamp Cinemas is located at 701 5th Avenue, San Diego, CA, 92101. Tickets will be available when the box office opens on Saturday, July 23.

This should be an amazing evening for movie fans!
