A Year of Movies Outside

With the launch of the Walk-in Theater in June 2015, PROXY has fully realized our long-standing goal: establishing a a new kind of cultural institution that fosters equitable access to enrichment by dissolving barriers between art, experience and community. We want to thank all of you who joined us!

Nearly 2,000 film lovers, neighbors and visitors turned out for our Fall Film Festival highlighting the best of new independent film. Our just completed Spring Seriesfound incredible success thanks to new partnerships with The Exploratorium, KQED, McSweeney’s, Sundance, and the San Francisco International Film Festival—all celebrated institutions that welcomed the opportunity to experiment with an outdoor format.

To mark our first year of presenting film and live performances at PROXY, we will join again with SFJAZZ in hosting a Neighborhood Block Party. The festivities take place on Tuesday, June 7, from 5:00-10:00pm, so save the date and stay tuned for more details.

PROXY and the Spring Series are projects of envelope A+D, supported by HERE FOR NOW, our non-profit affiliate. Heartfelt thanks to all of our creative partners as well as our sponsors who have made the Spring Series possible: Adobe, Biergarten, Miette, and Ritual.
