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.
