Tomorrow, Backseat and Philadelphia Friends of the Projected Arts present "Panic at Needle Park," starring Al Pacino and Kitty Winn, at 2424 Studios (York & Gaul) in Fishtown. The film, which Sakmann calls a "classic date movie," was scheduled around Valentine's Day, but was twice snowed out. Suggested donation is $3.
