  • Holy $#@! Banksy's movie will screen in St. Louis
Well, his movie is at least.

(Sorry, April Fools was yesterday.)

The enormously influential and incomparably brilliant British street artist has produced a feature-length film entitled Exit Through the Gift Shop and St. Louis is on the kind-of-short list of U.S. cities that will host a screening.

The film -- billed as "The world's first street art disaster movie" -- debuts April 16 in New York, Los Angeles and the San Francisco bay area and hits St. Louis almost a month later on May 14 at the Plaza Frontenac.

Now if only the man himself would visit and drop a couple stencils on our red-bricked city...
