    Celluloid Salon series breathes new life into the audio-visual experience, pairing obscure silent film shorts with soundtracks curated (and DJ'd live) by today's boldest musical talent.

    Admission and cocktails will be complimentary, courtesy of Drambuie, the fabled Scottish whiskey-based spiced liquor.

    Boy Friend, an Austin-based all-femaile three-piece with a passion for dark melodies and thick atmospheric backdrops, will aptly supplement the obscure and abstract elements of the program with a delicate and balancing infusion of their distinctive dreamy style combined with heavier raw improvisational moments.

    Vicious Cycles (1967): A gang of bikers is out for some trouble. Part of a trilogy of films made by Chuck Menville and Len Janson using pixelation, a process that stop-motion-animates live actors.
    Mechanical Principles (1930): With their purpose and use invisible to the viewer, human-made mechanical bits—gears, shafts, weights, and wheels—dance rhythmically in constant motion.
    Abstract Experiments in Kodachrome (1950): Slavko Vorkapich's Abstract Experiments in Kodachrome reduces the principles of montage to its essential qualities, with shapes and figures moving about, their colors exploiting the then-new Kodachrome color process.
    200 (1976): The US Information Agency (our propaganda machine) produced this short which encouraged its citizen to have a very psychedelic bicentennial.
    In Youth Beside the Lonely Sea (1925): The rich dream life of a young man is followed through its dark dissipation into lonely and disturbed old age in this dramatization of Thomas Bailey Aldrich's titular poem. Filmed in triptych, an early form of widescreen that required three separate projectors operating in perfect unison for exhibition.
    Introspection (1946): Dancers bodies move gracefully, detached from any recognizable dance.
    The Bridge (1929): A grim surprise gives a condemned man the opportunity to escape execution.
