About Reels On Wheel 5: Screening California

In part two of its Whose/Who’s California series, NewTown continues its exploration of California artists’ perceptions of the home state with Reels on Wheels 5: Screening California. NewTown takes yet another step towards fulfilling one of its major goals; demystifying current, often experimental arts by placing them in a friendly and fun context.

NewTown provides the popcorn. Bring your own pizza (cold or warm), freeze-dried root beer floats, significant other(s) and even the kids for an evening of experimental media in the comfort of your very own car. Just cruise on in, pop your top (convertible that is), open your eyes and that year old package of Gummi Bears, turn on your car’s FM and enjoy an evening at the drive-in. Tasteful romance encouraged but not provided.

The films range from satirical looks at the often stormy relationship between Greater Los Angeles and San Francisco to re-examinations of our landscape, portraits of eminent SoCal artists, the feasibility of relationships in Lalaland and much more.

This program is supported by a generous grant from the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division and The Cultural Affairs Commission through its Cultural Grants Program
