Looking for something to do on Valentine’s day that won’t make you gag?  Check out the grand opening exhibit of The Phantom Gallery and Bookstore “Bettie Page uncovered.”  The exhibit runs through March 18th so if you feel the need to do something schmoozy for Valentine’s Day then you will have plenty of time to visit. But make sure you do because this sounds amazing for anyone who loves pin-up photography.

Just in case I have to tell you Bettie Page was the iconic 50’s pin-up queen.  Works will include those from Olivia De Berardinis, Sorayama, Charles West and Bunny Yeager.  Also on display will be BANNED IN BOSTON works by Clive Barker, Robert Crumb and Annie Sprinkle.

This looks like a really cool gallery. Starting in March they will have the Friday night Phantom Film Society once a month. The first film is Romper Stomper, an Australian film from 1991 starring Russell Crowe.  With comparisons to Clockwork Orange, this film sounds right up my alley.
