Today at The Lyric

Weiner (M)
Former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner's catastrophic race for Mayor of New York City in 2013 is detailed in this behind-the-scenes documentary. Weiner became embroiled in his second widely publicized sexting scandal during the race, derailing his once-promising political career. WEINER is directed by Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg and received its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

There will be an Open Caption screening of WEINER--provided it exists--at 10:00AM on Monday, July 4th.

We will have only the 7:00PM screening (without captions) on Monday, July 4th.
