Event description


Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings at the PROXY Walk-In Theater begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm.

Come early to claim a good spot, enjoy some icy-cold Fort Point Beer (all proceeds support outdoor cinema at PROXY!) and wood-fired pizza by Del Popolo.

Check out our tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.


Directed by Boots Riley, 2018 [R]

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "powercalling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company's cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.
