Movies on a Big Screen is back with a new venue!!

Location: 600 4th St in West Sacramento. Corner of 4th & F (in WEST Sacramento, not Sacramento). This is *just* over the river near the Pyramid Building. Parking lot (which is lit) is just off of F St between 4th & 5th. It's a huge gray building taking up about half the block. And this venue is all thanks to local eco-urban developers LJ Urban! If you don't know them, check 'em out at http://www.ljurban.com - and check their blog while you're there!

Seating is mostly on folding chairs - feel free to bring a pillow or cushion - or even your own chair. Digital projection on to a large screen.

Admission: $5.00

You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story
In 1977, Gary Wilson recorded his bizarrely brilliant album, "You Think You Really Know Me." In performance, he played his jazz/rock/sound-collage masterpieces while clad in just his underwear, or wrapped in duct tape, writhing on stage and destroying female mannequins. Then, suddenly, he simply vanished - leaving friends and fans mystified. This documentary explores the life, disappearance and re-birth of a funny and fierce American original.

“Indie-rock enthusiasts will find much to appreciate. Gary Wilson and the Blind Dates, as his band was known, do for used-record stores what R. Crumb and Harvey Pekar do for used comic-book stores.” - The New York Times

“Welcome to the peculiar world of Gary Wilson. Outrageous… Fascinating…" - New York Post

"This low-key doc about lost-and-found Other Music cult hero Gary Wilson so sweetly underplays its hand that even the most jaundiced skeptics of Jandek worship come out simply rooting for the safe passage of town weirdos everywhere.” - Village Voice

"A fascinating chapter in pop music history. The performance footage is particularly arresting." - Hollywood Reporter
