If, like us, you’ve been known to geek out over the design of fonts and household items, you’re likely familiar with Gary Hustwit, director of the documentaries Helvetica and Objectified. On Monday, October 31, Hustwit brings his latest work, Urbanized, to E Street Cinema.

Excited to see the film, but feeling torn because the DC screening is on Halloween? Greater Greater Washington has got you covered! We invite you to join us at both the screening and a post-film costumed happy hour at Rocket Bar.

A recent review by Chuck Wolfe on Sustainable Cities Collective notes that Hustwit, “while not an architect or urban planner, aptly synthesizes the hottest urban issues—from carbon neutrality to safety to human-scale transportation.”

We’d love to see you at the theatre, which should included a Q&A with Hustwit, and the post-screening costume party, but you don’t have to attend the screening to join us at Rocket Bar.

And now for the fine print: we can’t guarantee the screening won’t sell out, and we can’t promise someone else won’t show up to Rocket Bar after the screening in a duplicate of your awesome urbanist, transit, or otherwise Greater Greater Halloween costume. So hurry over and buy your tickets to the screening now!
