Two important things you need to know about this Friday's GDI showing:  1) Note this week's location downtown, NOT at the RR tracks, and 2) Bring an FM radio.  On Friday we're screening the Guerilla Drive-In Subversive Shorts Festival right downtown. 

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents

13th Annual Subversive Shorts Festival
 
A program of rollicking and poignant Guerilla Drive-In Subversive Shorts. As you know, for years we've shown shorts before our feature film. By popular demand, we offer you an entire program of our subversive shorts. Great old shorts and many new ones. In addition, we offer you a convenient and central location that challenges the downtown police state.

Friday Aug 1st, 8pm
Pacific Ave & Cooper St, Downtown Santa Cruz
in front of the EvilPlex 9
(Always Free!)

NOTE: We will be right on Pacific at a fabulous downtown location this week, NOT at our usual RR tracks location.  Repeat:  We are NOT showing at the RR tracks this Friday.  And for this showing, bring an FM radio.  To skirt the stupid Santa Cruz laws regarding amplified sound, we'll be broadcasting the sound straight to your little radio.

PLUS an intermission, challenging ideas of public space, an enchanting downtown location, and great company.

BRING an FM radio, lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, food & drink to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project.

A RANT ABOUT PERMITS:
We couldn't give a rat's ass about city permits.  The idea that city administrators attempt to control every bit of public space in this town sorely lacking in public space is patently offensive to some of us.  The sidewalks are ridgedly controlled, the parks and open spaces are closed at night, the beach (the beach! for God's sake) is locked down after 10pm, and the city fought it's own citizens long and hard to resist creating a town square.  The folks in the Guerilla Drive-In collective have long thought that we are the public in public space and that we would not ask permission to freely use the streets and sidewalks of our town.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION:
  Go up Pacific until you get to Cooper.  Stop there.  Pull up a piece of curb.  Enjoy the movie.
