Experience the The Proxy Fall Film Festival, a five-week series of free Friday night screenings, at the Proxy Walk-in Movie Theater in Hayes Valley.
This Friday, October 26, 2018, watch the free screening of “Dark Light,” at 6:00 pm. Bring a blanket and your friends, because it’s going to be a good night.
“Dark Light: Sundance Short Film”
The art of the midnight/cult film has been around as long as movies and has flourished at the Sundance Film Festival. Join us after dark to see weird visions and underworlds from Sundance’s recent years of delving into the mysterious. Less about shock and more about strange characters, unseen worlds and tripping out. You may learn bad habits, or maybe it’ll just be funny, you weirdo.
