6/5 Temescal Street Cinema

Posted by novoscene on June 5, 2008

Break out your beach chair, grab some noshables and make your way over to the Bank of the West Building on Telegraph for some free outdoor cinema courtesy of the Temescal Street Collective, a new organization promoting community and merchant involvement around the 50th and T-graph area.

Tonight’s inaugural show includes the Oscar nominated “La Corona,” a character-driven documentary that follows four inmates competing for the crown in the annual beauty pageant of the Bogota Women’s Prison. I’m willing to bet they’ll be no worldwide press tour and national acclaim for these beauties behind bars, but it should be interesting viewing. Also on the bill is One’s Duty, a dark comedy set in Chile, and a performance by Afro Reggae cover band Faux Mojo. And if you’re rolling up on two wheels, you might want to get there early for a little pre-cinema bike ride courtesy of Tip Top Bike Shop.-kwan (Hat tip to Momma for the heads up)

Temescal Street Cinema: La Corona
7pm Bike ride, 8pm Faux Mojo, 9:20pm Film screenings
