Balboa Theater, Owsley Brown & S.F. Cultural History Museum present Microcosmic Cinema: A Benefit For Canyon Cinema Foundation featuring 16mm projector performances by Kerry Laitala who will be presenting four works from her City Luminous series. These performances pay homage and celebrate the lighting design pioneers that gathered just over a century ago to illuminate the fabulous Jewel City at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition – a 635-acre monument to impermanence constructed, and soon after, demolished in San Francisco’s Marina district.

An event in two acts, the first includes a selection of works featuring kaleidoscopic color, surreal stories and extraordinary places by Jodie Mack, Barbara Hammer and Barbara Klutinis, Stacey Steers and Sophie Michael. The second, single and dual 16mm projector performances by Laitala with live score by Voicehandler. Huge thanks to Marc Capelle for bringing this evening together!

Tickets to Microcosmic Cinema: A Benefit for Canyon Cinema are $15.00, and can be purchased online at https://bit.ly/2ZZgn3M
