iPOP at the Premiere of "Camp"

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

A warm humid evening greeted the New York premiere of Todd Graff's "Camp" on Monday at the Ziegfeld Theater in Midtown Manhattan. Crowds packed into the large theater for the screening of the film as gatherers fanned themselves inside. Apparently, the air-conditioner hadn't cooled the theater down in time, making it seem all the more like a summer camp. The kids from the film also joined in on the fun, turning up the volume as each new cast member appeared on screen, and joining the rest of the audience in raucous cheers after each song. The kids later performed at the after-party and were joined by IFC execs and Killer Films' Christine Vachon as well as celebs including Ashanti, Stanley Tucci and Edie Falco. Also attending was Danny DeVito (who produced the film) with wife Rhea Perlman. And tearing up the dance floor well into the festivities, Fred Schneider from the B-52's, groovin' along to "Love Shack."
