Soylent Green: the passing of a Hollywood legend and a Chelsea landmark

On Friday, March 23, we returned to the IFC Center for a midnight screening of Soylent Green, the 1972 dystopia thriller directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson in his final film.

We recorded our pre-show discussion at the now-shuttered El Quijotea 90 year old Spanish restaurant in the ground floor of the Chelsea Hotel. Over dinner we talk with a couple at a neighboring table about all things (or at least some things) Jewish in NYC, and with staff of the restaurant about the closing of this mainstay 23rd Street restaurant.
