Warhol Re-Discoveries

Screen Test # 2 and Restaurant

San Francisco Art Institute

The restoration of Andy Warhol’s films is finally recommencing, and tonight’s program includes two never before shown on the West Coast: Screen Test #2 (1965, 66 minutes) was one of Warhol’s earliest sound films and preceded such gems as Poor Little Rich Girl and Vinyl; it stars Ronald Tavel and Mario Montez. Restaurant (1965, 33 minutes), not to be confused with the later Nude Restaurant, features Edie Sedgwick and Ondine.
