Obsolete Cinema presents Rewind This!

Jan 31, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

It’s a subject close to our hearts: VHS. It was cheap, it was everywhere, and it changed the way we watch movies forever. This month we proudly present a special event featuring the documentary Rewind This!, about the rise and revolution of home video and the true believers who still cling to the format.

An exploding industry without rules! Backyard filmmakers with zero budget and a surplus of dreams! Unchecked global piracy! VHS vs. Beta! Direct to-video madness! It’s all here, along with a rogues gallery of directors, rental employees, XXX vets, box artists, collectors, and more, making for what The Hollywood Reporter calls “…an entertaining, sometimes enlightening history of the video format…”

We’ll have the filmmakers in attendance for a special Q&A, followed by a trapped-on-VHS oddity from their vault, Science Crazed.

Embrace the analog at Freddy’s, where the projector burns hot and the happy hour deals are cool.
