The PROXY Projector is Rolling
Just two months into 2018 and it’s already been an exciting year at PROXY. In February, we got the projector rolling for two pop-up events (in one week!), both for a good cause.
Up first was the Marine Layer x Protect Our Winters Charitee party benefiting POW’s fight against climate change on behalf of the outdoor sports community worldwide. A portion of the Charitee (t-shirts for charity) sales went to POW.
The event featured screenings of Life of Glide, The Last Hill, and the feature of the night, MERU, a documentary following three mountain climbers’ quest to conquer the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru in the Himalayas. Del Popolo and Fig & Thistle served up pizza and drinks. It was a beautiful, cold night to eat, drink, and marvel at these outdoor conquests on the big screen.
Later that week, Fort Point Beer Company joined us for special San Francisco Beer Week screening of Blade Runner 2049 accompanied by Fort Point’s limited edition blended saison, Resonance.
All proceeds from the beer sales went to our nonprofit partner, HERE FOR NOW, which works to bring people together around ideas and issues, activating public space, transcending barriers, and opening minds. HERE FOR NOW helps us keep the cultural programming at PROXY free for all to enjoy.
Want to watch movies outside with us? Our 2018 Spring Series will kick off at the end of March! Stay tuned for more details.
