Epicenter of the experimental scene in Tucson, our much-missed microcinema soulmate David Sherman flies in to share a sneak peek at his new media inquiry coder decoder exploder. Sherman’s rep precedes him via a hilarious tour of his former SF Cellar Sinema, shot by none other than George Kuchar! ALSO: Brian Darr “unpacks” a carousel of 35mm Citizen Kane slides in Fun to Run, exposing a matrix of amazing connections between Orson Welles, William Randolph Hearst, and that Sur-real castle on the California coast. PLUS the theatrical premiere of ex-neighbor Rodney (Room 237) Ascher’s The Wooden Boy, on Horror Film tropes that, as a generation, we’ll never be able to shake. AND another debut from another former San Franciscan: Sam Green’s A Drink with Louis pays tribute to Louis Armstrong’s ¼” audiotape hobby, a now-public record of the jazz great’s dirty jokes and love of laxatives. MORE: Mechanical Turks, Zuse computers, Optigan keyboards, filmstrip projectors, and VR displays.
