We’re halfway thru our outdoor series and its great to see how, each week, the crowds continue to grow, in addition to how diverse the crowds are from literally every category of demographic.  Age, sex, ethnicity, religion, etc…these events are a testament to how art, not to mention a good time, can bring people together, from all walks of life.

Thank you to everyone who attended (including those who participated in the 90’s costume contest), thanks to DJ Miss H.E.R for setting the tone, and shouts to our media partners.

We look forward to seeing everyone next Tues. July 10 for Jean Claude Van-Damme’s breakout movie Bloodsport.
