Turn out the lights. The party’s over.
After a scintillating cinematic summer that saw the Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series, La Source, and Koyaanisqatsi, the Henry Miller Library will be mothballing its donated Epson projector come Saturday night.
That’s because we’ll be showing the last film of the summer season. Go to sleep sweet projector-prince!
It just so happens, however, that the film is awesome. It’s called Big Easy Express, and it’s an award-winning documentary capturing the touring exploits of Mumford and Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Library alums Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Tickets are only $10 and you can get them in advance here: http://bigsureasyexpress.eventbrite.com/#

And why not? Soon Indian Summer will melt into an evocative autumnal too-chilly-to-show-movies-outdoors-here chill. The days will get shorter, the dark more expansive and menacing, and in the once-dusty Library poster room our regal projector, deep in placid hibernation, will dream of what projectors dream of: sprawling fields of quadraphonic crickets and panoramic Blu-Ray sunsets; a beautiful projector dream-girl (her name is Luminous Lux) with soft and radiant light pouring from her lens; and, quite naturally, the promise of Spring.
Ahh the circle of life!
