Philadelphia Film Society - Screening of The Wrester at Asylum Arena
PFS filmadelphiaCLASSICS series on location, continued last week with a screening of the 2009 Oscar nominated film, The Wrestler.
The Film was shown at Asylum Arena (South Philly) because the wrestling scenes in the movie were actually shot there! I knew director, Darren Aronofsky had Philly connections with his film Black Swan, as the PA Ballet is all over that film, but this was news to me that Mickey Rourke had been here filming in 2008.
Prior to the screening, the audience was surprised by a visit from wrestlers, Claudio Castagnoli and his partner Tursas
Claudio only had a small part in the movie, but was on set for all
This was my second time seeing The Wrestler,
I'd forgotten how much aging plays a part in the movie - Rourke's
Next to him is David, a rep with Allied film promoters and a genuine fan of this film.
I also spoke with PFS Member, John Heuer
Heuer had some good insights into the comparison of the these two

Last, but certainly not least, The Film Society welcomes a new staff member - Office Manager, Daryl Bergman.
I asked Daryl what interested her in the job as Office Manager for
