Cure 8 Cinema is an attempt to have a series of unique and entertaining film screenings in Oakland this summer. Primarily outdoors because it is just better that way.
The idea is to have a different curator each installment. Curating would consist of choosing and presenting a film, booking a musical act and directing the meal if not cooking it. All in a theme of their choosing.
This is rough format as envisioned. The best laid schemes of mice and men…
Food is cooked up 7p to 8p with beer and good conversation. The curator may provide an activity based on the theme or film. Or maybe they DJ. Or they have drinks with their friends.
Sun goes down. Projector comes on. The musical act will perform while I mixed together other films that are selected by the curator on the theme.
Following the music the curator will talk. They'll introduce themselves, their theme, their film, their reasons and any instructions for the viewing. Creativity is encouraged. I just ask that people make a genuine effort to convey why they've chosen their films. Irony won't be banned but it shouldn't be the driving force of the evening. These speeches should be at least five minutes but really no longer than 20 mins.
Then film viewing. Discussion. Good dreams and memories.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
