6 PM, All Ages


Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings at the PROXY Walk-In Theater begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm.

Check out our tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.


Presented by Sundance

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.
