Magic Lantern Film Series on Kerouac Alley: A Night of Cacophony
As North Beach awakens from its pandemic hibernation, Magic Lantern film events return to Kerouac Alley. Lights, tables, chairs, and a screen transform this narrow street, between Vesuvio and City Lights, into a mesmerizing outdoor theater.
On June 16th, filmmaker Steve Mobia and culture-jamming icon John Law—both survivors of the Suicide Club and co-founders of the Cacophony Society—present an evening of short films and great stories about billboard alteration, early Burning Man, and other exploits of Cacophony. The price of admission is a drink at Vesuvio. Books about Cacophony will be available for purchase, courtesy of City Lights and the book’s publisher, Last Gasp.
The show begins at 8:30, as dark falls on Kerouac Alley. For a full schedule of Magic Lantern events, which are held every other Wednesday, follow @sfmagiclantern on Twitter and Instagram, or check out their posts at https://linktr.ee/sfmagiclantern.
