Join Leo Gold and the staff of The New Capital Show for an evening of entertainment and discussion at The Artery, a unique art venue in the Museum District. On Thursday, November 1st, the NCS will sponsor a free showing of the 1990 documentary Berkeley in the Sixties. This highly entertaining film features archival footage of the free speech and anti-war movements in Berkeley during the 1960's, interviews with leaders of the student movements, and the great music from the period.
The gates to The Artery will open at 6:30 pm, and the movie will start promptly at 7:00. Following the two-hour film, Leo will moderate an informal discussion about the lessons of the documentary that may be relevant to people involved with social movements today. The evening should conclude by 10:00.
The Artery is located on the wooded lot at the corner of Jackson and Prospect (with the entrance on Prospect), about 1 block east and 2 blocks north of the Children's Museum (click here for google driving directions). The Artery features an outdoor viewing screen with many fascinating light sculptures and other attractions on the grounds. There will be light snacks and soft drinks provided for free (feel free to bring a snack dish to share if you wish), and wine and beer will be available for a modest donation.
Seating is on cinder block benches, so bring a pillow or stadium seat (but please no lawnchairs) if you have a tender butt! Parking is on the streets around The Artery, so carpool if possible to reduce our carbon footprint and traffic problems. Seating is limited to about 80 people, so arrive early to be sure of getting a seat.
See you on November 1!
