FLAX's Drive-In Theater

FLAX’s Drive-In Theater returns to Tin Flats for a new season of double features on the last Monday of the month from April to October. Each invited artist has one film chosen to screen, and selects an additional film of his/her choice – a feature, a documentary, another artist’s video – echoing his/her work. Each month offers a new game of refraction and reflection through multiple lenses—from the artists’ screens to the cars’ windshields. The screenings will include an informal discussion with the artists who are locally based or in residency.

Free with RSVP, limited capacity. Each screening has eight spots available for cars, which must be reserved in advance. No reservation is required for open seating area outside of cars. Doors open at 8pm, screening begins at 8:30pm. Each screening includes complimentary popcorn and iced tea!

On Monday, June 24, the selected artist Mona Varichon will screen her work No, I Was Thinking of Life, a rumination on long distance, loss, improvisatory laws, and bilingualism. Her selected film to complete the double-feature is Hervé Guibert's Modesty or Immodesty, a self-portrayal and intimate last look into the life of the famed French writer and photographer and his struggle with AIDS.
