The 11 PM event featured a pre-screening talkback with "Camp" writer and director Graff and Tony Award winner Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Rocky), who contributed lyrics for several songs featured in the film.
Also part of the talkback were film actors De Jesus (La Cage aux Folles, In the Heights), Allen (Hair), Cutts, pianist Simmons, Joanna Chilcoat, Stephen Dimenna, Brittany Pollack and additional special guests.
"The movie, about a summer camp based on Stagedoor Manor for the performing arts, has become iconic among theatre aficionados.
