This weekend, three of my favorite things are coming together. Downtown L.A., 3-D, and the Downtown Independent Theater. If you haven’t been to this venue yet, you are missing out. Also, you have a great opportunity to visit the theater this weekend for an independent 3-D film festival.
The Stereo Club of Southern California is hosting the 7th Annual Los Angeles 3-D Movie Festival this Saturday, May 15th, 2010, at the Downtown Independent Theater. The festival will present a special 3-D theatrical premiere screening of Dark Country, the feature film directorial debut of actor Thomas Jane. The festival will also showcase a selection of over twenty international 3-D shorts in competition, stereoscopic art installations, and demonstrations of do-it-yourself 3-D production.
The festival begins at 1pm, with the first block of 3-D shorts in competition followed by a free demonstration of 3-DIY: Do-It-Yourself 3-D at 3pm. The second block of shorts is at 4pm. The evening’s events begin at 8pm, with the presentation of the Jury Awards and the Premiere Screening of Dark Country, culminating with a reception and after-party on the theater rooftop. This may be your one and only chance to see Dark Country in a theater and the way it was meant to be seen in glorious 3-D.
All events will be held at the Downtown Independent Theater, 251 S. Main street, Los Angeles, CA, 90012. For more info and the complete schedule, visit the festival website. Advance tickets are available online.
