Kickstarter is over, but you can still support the #PROXYwalkintheater

We brought together a community of over 200 hundred people and raised over $80,000 during the Kickstarter campaign that ended last week. Thank you to everyone who donated! Your support shows us there is a desire for a free walk-in movie theater at PROXY—unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for us to meet our ambitious goal of $150,000. In the inimitable words of Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights (don’t fact check this, please): Go big or go home.

We went big and we came up short, but we’re not done yet. Over the past year, we’ve been busy behind the scenes creating a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization called HERE FOR NOW (HFN). HFN is an organization that will take the lessons we’ve learned through managing PROXY and use them to activate other underutilized urban areas.

One of HFN’s first orders of business will be to continue fundraising for the walk-in theater at PROXY. You can make a fully tax-deductible donation on its website.

Thanks again for being a part of the walk-in movie theater project at PROXY. We look forward to watching movies outside together.
