Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 6 – 8 pm Cost: free for the entertainment! $5 for a sampling of food! Delight in the culinary talents of our Artists-in-Residence while celebrity judges Paddy Johnson, Steven Stern, Harriet Taub, David Shapiro, and Tracy Candido determine the ultimate Flux Iron Chef.
Flux Factory presents Galactic Drive-In, as part of Empire Drive-In, a month-long series of programming within a full-scale theater made out of wrecked cars as audience seating and a 40-foot screen constructed from salvaged wood.
During Galactic Drive-In, blast into low Earth orbit for a celebration of campy sci-fi, anyone-can-do-it filmmaking, and weapons of mass destruction. Flux Factory’s experienced space flight attendants will guide you through take-off procedures in preparation for the night’s features: Ed Wood’s classic “Plan 9 from Outer Space”, hailed by many as the “worst film in the history of cinema”, and “Hollywood Burn”, Soda_Jerk’s sci-fi copyleft epic more than 10-years in the making. Additionally, Flux Factory will premiere new work using props, costumes, and sets made entirely from reclaimed materials. Prior spaceflight experience not required.
Tickets are $15, $10 for NYSCI members, and can be purchased here.
