Best Place to Watch Movies the Rest of the World Has Forgotten - 2013
The Projection Room at Hibbleton Gallery
223 W. Santa Fe Ave.
Fullerton, CA 92832
Hidden near the back door of the Magoski Arts Colony is filmmaker Steve Elkins' projector. Once a week, he shows films: the esoterica of Stan Brakhage, Werner Herzog's luminous documentaries, the political provocations of Jean-Luc Godard. So why travel to Fullerton to sit on old furniture, drink a beer and watch the films with a bunch of hip types when you can rent/watch many of the films from Netflix? Because with Elkins at the helm, you're watching these fine films the way they're supposed to be viewed . . . with people. Smart people. And smart people plus fine films equals good conversation. What do you have against good conversation?
