Summer Fun Time Society (SFTS), a group who has been “slappin’ the shit out of boredom since oh eight,” is putting on fantastic event tomorrow night called ROBOsoup 3.1-Technology & The Future at the Downtown Independent. This is the third installment of their “Art Soup” series which brings creatives together into a forum “in which they can gain exposure in an art arena that isn’t bound by the bureaucracy of the L.A. art scene.”
What will you get with your $5 admission to this happening? Well, there will be screenings of Bronx Executioner, a 1989 cyborg flick, and Metropolis, the classic 1927 silent film starring its iconic robot, Maria, in the gorgeous remodeled theater, 8-bit music, a DJ party on roof, planetariums, 3-D photography, a photo booth and more!
The ROBOsoup festivities will start during the day with FREE screenings of Metropolis at 2pm and 4pm. After 5pm, you pay five bucks for a full night of art and entertainment culminating in a midnight showing of Metropolis with a live soundtrack by local musician Thavius Beck.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Downtown Independent, there’s no time like tomorrow night. It’s an impressive venue scheduling exciting upcoming programming. You might just happen to be in the area anyway for the monthly Downtown Art Walk, so stop on by!
ROBOsoup 3.1 is Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 5pm at Downtown Independent, which is located at 251 S. Main St., Los Angeles 90012. The theater can be reached at 213.617.1033.
