DRAMBUIE: Cinema 16 in Brooklyn Free Booze Nov 21

Posted by ricebird |

Booze and movies in a Brooklyn art space. Word.

In an era when movies are often reduced to the solitary screens of laptops and iPods, the acclaimed Cinema 16 series offers a true revival of the medium. Pairing obscure vintage film programs with live scores composed and performed by specially chosen musicians, Cinema 16 recreates the shared experience and awe of the 1920's silent film era.

The Saturday, November 21st edition of Cinema 16 will be housed in DUMBO's beautiful new Galapagos Art Space. Admission and cocktails will be complimentary, courtesy of Drambuie, the fabled Scottish spiced whiskey. The program includes two PSA's and one educational video from the 60s and 70s:

Styling and Experimenting, 1964 - illustrates the process of designing the "new" Mustang
One Got Fat: Bicycle Safety, 1963 - A group of children in ape masks demonstrate the dangers of biking in this strange and dark PSA.

Solar System, 2nd Edition, 1977 - The academic film masterpiece of Tom Smith (Star Wars special effects maestro).These Are Powers, a Brooklyn-based band, will perform an original soundtrack written specifically for this program. With DJ Jack Shine.
