Los Angeles Filmforum presents The Dream Machine: A Living Room Screening with Phil Solomon!
With Phil Solomon in person!
Filmforum is delighted to host two evenings with Colorado-based master filmmaker Phil Solomon, as part of a multi-venue celebration of his work. In this first night, Solomon relocates his dream machine to the marvelous Velaslavasay Panorama for the sort of informal living room screening that we all dream of. It’s a night for rare super8mm films, even two that were never released, and a few joyful larks. Plus the Panorama’s garden welcomes everyone for the post-show conviviality.
Special Thanks to Steve Anker, Berenice Reynaud, Paul Young, Sara Velas, REDCAT, Cal Arts, and Young Projects
Tickets: $10 general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door
