Friday, April 21
Shelton Theater, San Francisco
8 PM, All Ages

PROXY, San Francisco

Directed by Matt Johnson, 2016 “A sly act of movie love for and by Kubrick fans”—Vulture
In 1967, during the height of the Cold War, two young CIA agents (Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) go undercover at NASA to investigate a possible Russian mole. In disguise as documentary filmmakers, they tap phones and break into offices while purporting to learn more about the Apollo project. But when they end up uncovering a shocking NSA secret—and a major government cover-up—they decide to embark on a new mission that may put their own lives at risk.
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the PROXY Spring Series features new independent film and one-of-a-kind collaborations with pioneering arts institutions. The six, free, Friday evening film screenings begin at 7:45 pm with “doors” opening at 7:00 pm. Come early to claim a good spot, and be sure to review our tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.

*Remember drinking more than one (1) drink each day (if you are 21, of course) increases your odds of developing breast cancer. Alcohol can increase the levels of some hormones, such as estrogen and unusually high levels of estrogen increase the risk of breast cancer. We know it’s not fair but think of the consequences if you drink too much. Be responsible and drink in moderation if you do.
