SAM Remix at the Olympic Sculpture Park, Fri Aug 7th

Three Dollar Bill Cinema is a community cohost for the Seattle Art Museum’s SAM Remix this Friday
Olympic Sculpture Park
Friday, August 7
8pm-Midnight

Celebrate summer at the Olympic Sculpture Park with DJs spinning dance music, performances and tours until midnight.
The Seattle Art Museum will keep the Olympic Sculpture Park open until midnight for a special, summer SAM Remix event on Friday, August 7. Attendees can dance to a lineup of internationally renowned DJs and experience the sculptures on view through unconventional and highly opinionated tours of the park.

The sculpture park’s PACCAR Pavilion will showcase internationally renowned electronic music and video projections curated by Seattle’s Decibel Festival. Featured artists include Rena Jones (Portland), Filastine with DJ Collage (Barcelona), and Lusine (Seattle).

SAM Remix’s distinct blend of art, music and performance will extend throughout the entire sculpture park through flashlight art tours, spoken word performances, break dancing and other spontaneous performances. For example, special “My Favorite Things: The Park After Dark” tours led by writers from The Stranger, members of SAM staff, and Remix co-hosts will offer party-goers the chance to experience the park in new and unexpected ways. Friends of the Nib will host a comics drawing rally in the Alvord Art Lab, where visitors can participate alongside a cast of Seattle’s noteworthy comic and graphic artists – an interaction that promises to inspire anyone’s creative side.

TICKETS
Tickets may be purchased at the Ticketing Desk at any of SAM’s three sites or over the phone with a credit card by calling the Box Office at 206.654.3121.Prices are $5 (SAM Members), $10 (Adults), $8 (Students with ID and seniors). This event is open to guests age 18 and over only, and the first 100 guests at the door get in FREE.

SAM REMIX
Part of SAM’s diverse After Hours programming on Thursday and Friday nights, Remix brings turntable artists to the stage for a wide variety of musical sounds. Geared toward adults age 25–40, SAM’s happy hour atmosphere and unique artistic setting help visitors end the week with lots of down-tempo beats, fresh new mixes and friendly, art-loving faces.

LGBT Films at SIFF and a Gay-la

SIFF starts today and there are a bevy of queer films to choose from including the Gay-La that Three Dollar Bill Cinema is co-presenting.

Gay-La
Patrik 1.5
May 28
7:30pm
Egyptian Theatre

What a difference punctuation can make. Because of a stray decimal, the child that a gay couple thinks will be their newly adopted 18-month-old son is actually a troubled, homophobic 15-year-old. Director Ella Lemhagen treats the dramatic subjects of adoption and bigotry with humor, intelligence, and a dash of romance.
Swedish with English subtitles
Complete Gay-la info here

Here is a list of all the LGBT films playing at SIFF. Note: this list also includes short films.

THE LEATHER BOYS screens tomorrow

Our God Save the Queens Spring Film Series kicks off with a rare screening of THE LEATHER BOYS.

In this striking portrayal of 1960s working class British life, a young married couple find themselves drifting apart until another man steps in and revs things up. Racy and rough-edged, THE LEATHER BOYS shifts gears between fiery confrontations and quiet moments of contemplation, ultimately leading to a climactic crossroads for the two men and the woman between them.

“Combines the sexual frankness and harsh realism of the British New Wave and confronts themes of class and homoeroticism at a time when being openly gay was still illegal.” – Britmovie.com

1966 Golden Globe Nominee — Best English Language Foreign Film
