1020 on the Big Screen

1020 groupies rejoice! That booth where you had one too many tinis is now famous. The latest prep school misfits movie, The Art of Getting By, stars Emma Roberts (the one from Aquamarine—which maybe made you tear up that one time) and the Wes Anderson look-alike from the trippy version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Isn’t it terrifying when kids in children’s movies get old?


Anywho, The Art of Getting By looks kinda sucky. But fast forward the trailer to 1:47 and check out where the happy couple is spinning?! Our very own 1020. Fact: this could not happen in real life because Emma Roberts’ pretty little head would be impaled by a dart.

And you may recall that Will Ferrell once freeze-frame peed in our favorite haunt. Basically 1020 is universally acknowledged as a dive bar. We’re weirdly proud.

    @10twizzy Is the type of name Tom Haverford would give 1020

  • WHY says:

    @WHY Why do they keep putting Tom’s in the background of garbage film and tv. It’s only encouraging them. At this rate, they’re never getting a credit card or flex machine.

  • confused says:

    @confused Is my perception of age all wrong, or was that movie populated by 15 year-old-people doing 26-year-old-people things?

    1. idk says:

      @idk It seemed more typical high school/teen drama to me. Pretty sure 26 year olds don’t go to school and spend tons of times wondering if they should ask out their classmate.

      That said, it looks like a cute movie.

    @Anonymous travel channel filmed there yesterday. doing a show on dive bars. let’s hope the drinks stay cheap.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Yeah I feel ya. I hate the idea of leaving the area to find another bar. Our name isn’t safe outside the shire.

      1. well says:

        @well our IDs definitely aren’t. turns out bars in chelsea don’t accept fakes with holograms that literally just say “authentic.”

    2. ... says:

      @... you are truly deluded if you think people would travel to come drink in morningside heights.

    1. You also says:

      @You also probably enjoyed frontiers of science.

  • oy! says:

    @oy! emma roberts! almost as great as emma watson. though i’d still rather take the later.

  • wow says:

    @wow I remember seeing emma roberts in “unfabulous,” a typical teen dramedy on nickelodeon that was on like 10 years ago. she really hasn’t changed that much!

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous No bed bugs in the trailer?? Doesnt seem accurate without them

  • Mikey says:

    @Mikey That’s definitely 1020. And no one ever gets impaled by darts, or even poked for that matter.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous wow they made 1020 not look like complete shit. impressive.
