I really hesitate to tell you this (so as to improve my own chances of getting tickets), but I wouldn’t feel right about hiding it from you. This year’s DC Labor Filmfest is going to feature Office Space, and in honor of the 10th anniversary of the movie that made the Ghetto Boys’ “Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta” the anthem of cube-dwellers everywhere, Gary Cole (Lumbergh) and Stephen Root (Milton) will be appearing at the screening. there will, of course, be a red Swingline raffle as well. There’s a free showing at Georgetown’s ICC Auditorium on Friday, October 16th, and a ticketed showing at AFI Silver on Saturday the 17th.
Seems like a smart move for DC Labor to target white collar workers who may not think the labor movement is relevant to them by using Office Space. (Hat tip to WBJ’s “Working the Room” blog for the heads-up.)
