Event description

Description

RSVP mandatory for cars. Complimentary popcorn and iced tea.

Doors open at 7pm. Performance starts at 8pm and creening starts at 8:30pm.

FLAX’s Drive-In Theater returns to Tin Flats for a new season of double features on the last Monday of the month from April to October.

We’ve invited six artists and a selected one of their films. Each artist then selects an additional film of his/her choice – a feature, a documentary, another artist’s video – echoing his/her work. Each month offers a new game of refraction and reflection through multiple lenses—from the artists’ screens to the cars’ windshields.

The screenings will include an informal discussion with the artists who are locally based or in residency.

Each screening has eight spots available for cars, which must be reserved in advance. No reservation is required for open seating area outside of cars.

Screenings will begin after dark and includes complimentary popcorn and iced tea.

Trailer for Safe

Julianne Moore gives a breakthrough performance as Carol White, a Los Angeles housewife in the late 1980s who comes down with a debilitating illness. After the doctors she sees can give her no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A profoundly unsettling work from the great American director Todd Haynes, Safe functions on multiple levels: as a prescient commentary on self-help culture, as a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, as a drama about class and social estrangement, and as a horror film about what you cannot see. This revelatory drama was named the best film of the 1990s in a Village Voice poll of more than fifty critics. (Criterion)
