Coming Soon: PROXY Walk-in Theater Kickstarter!

Those steel beams have been enigmatically looming over PROXY for long enough. We’re busy wrangling and herding and networking in preparation for what will sure to be a wild 30-day ride. On Tuesday, June 9th, we’re launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to finish the the walk-in movie theater at PROXY.

The money raised will go toward purchasing the necessary elements for an eventual PROXY Fall Film Festival. Those elements include a digital projector, a screen that will be able to withstand those strong Hayes Valley gusts of wind, a sound system, and the rights to screen the as-yet-unnamed-but-totally-awesome-films in public.

As a backer, you’ll not only feel good about being a crucial part of providing free, outdoor movies to the community, but you’ll also have the chance to gain access to backer-only special ¬†events with select filmmakers and exclusive experiences with our beloved PROXY vendors (surf lesson + juice, anyone?).

We’re also pleased to announce the creation of a bona fide 501(c)3 nonprofit organization named HERE FOR NOW. HERE FOR NOW is a new kind of arts organization that creates centers of vibrancy through temporary activations focused on art and design. One of its first orders of business will be programming the PROXY Fall Film Festival. This means that you pledges will be 100% tax-deductible.

Even though we’re not launching until June, you can help us out by making sure you’re signed up to receive all of the news and updates about the campaign. Your guide to staying current is below.
