Paterson: Poems and Pour: February 10th, 2017
Tulsans are invited to join Circle Cinema, Nimrod International Journal, and MUSED. at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 10th, as they present an evening of film and poetry with a special Tulsa connection at Paterson: Poems and Pour.
Paterson, starring Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani, depicts a week in the life of Paterson, a bus driver and poet living in the city of Paterson, NJ. The city of Paterson was the inspiration for a book-length poem of the same name by poet William Carlos Williams, and the film follows Paterson through his weekly routine of driving a bus and writing poems based on his observations of his passengers and his city. Paterson features several poems written expressly for the film by acclaimed poet and Tulsa native Ron Padgett, who also recorded a special introduction to the film that will be shown only at Circle Cinema in Tulsa.
Circle Cinema, Nimrod, and MUSED. are excited to celebrate this Tulsa connection on the film’s opening night at Paterson: Poems and Pour. The event begins at 6:30 p.m., with the film itself starting at 7:30, and will feature a reception with beer and beer cocktails, a brief poetry reading of William Carlos Williams’s and Ron Padgett’s work, and a prompt-based writing exercise to get viewers thinking about their own poetry. Those who participate in the writing exercise will have the opportunity to win Circle Cinema passes and to have their poems featured on MUSED and Nimrod’s social media pages.
Tickets for Paterson may be purchased from Circle Cinema’s website. The reception is free with a purchased ticket for the movie. For more information, contact Nimrod Journal at (918) 631-3080 or
