Dive-in Movies: Flix from the Great B-yond

August 17–August 24, 2000

Dive-in Movies: Flix from the Great B-yond is a return of the Living Drive-in. Held outdoors at the urban beach, Dive-in Movies is a technicolored summer of star-gazing, subversive silver-screen myths, and 3-D creatures that can only come out at night. Dive-in Movies is curated by Ocularis with lighting design provided by Galapagos Art and Performance Space.

TWO NIGHTS! DOUBLE FEATURES!
August 17TH: THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON IN 3-D!!
August 24TH: COBRA WOMAN

Each B-feature is preceded by a program of short films by experimental and underground directors: works that spin out from the B-side: vulgar and sublime reworkings of cultural detritus and cinema clichés. Sprinkled with rare celluloid novelties. Risqué Scopitones, lurid trailers, and digest features. Dive into P.S.1 for cinema, snow cones, a cool drink, and poolside surprises in a unique open-air environment. Dunescape, an urban beach by architecture group SHoP, is comprised of pools, misters, and a boardwalk, inviting visitors to lounge, socialize, sunbathe, wade in pools, or walk through a spray of water to cool off. Bring your beach blanket for reclined movie viewing!
