The Story of a ‘Page Six’ Lifetime

Crazy Love premiere. Beekman Theater, 1271 Second Ave., nr. 62nd St., 6 p.m. The documentary is about New Yorkers Burt and Linda Pugach, who got married sixteen years after Burt went to jail in 1959 for jealously throwing acid in Linda’s face. The lovely couple will be there in person along with director Dan Klores, Jimmy Breslin, Mario Cuomo, and Howard Stern. Did any tabloid editors walk out of the newsroom after finishing that story and never come back? It’d be the sensationalism equivalent of retiring the night you won the Super Bowl — after the Acid-Blinding Rage Lovers Reunite, what more could there be?

In the Shadow of the Moon screening. Dolby Screening Room, 1350 Sixth Ave., nr. 55th St. Expected guests include Walter Cronkite, Richard Belzer, Paul Haggis, Robert Klein, and more. Another documentary, this time about the Apollo astronauts who went to the moon even though the moon had once blinded them with acid.
