SLO cinema opinions

March 1, 2010

This is a slideshow I made from snippets of interviews I did in the past. The clips feature Cal Poly Club of Independent Film-makers president Griffin Davis, SLO Art Center assistant director Muara Johnston and Palm Theater owner Jim Dee.

The subject is “Cinema in San Luis Obispo”. As this is a broad theme, there’s no real connection between what the three interviewees talk about, but I think it’s a fairly interesting insight on what these individuals, who really care about cinema in San Luis Obispo, are thinking.

The Sunset Drive-in

January 26, 2010

On Monday evening, I went down to the Sunset drive-in theater. As I arrived closer to the theater, I was surprised to hear a big silence, even as the pictures were flickering on the screen. It was different from what I imagined: Some giant speakers with booming sounds in the night.

It was the first time I went to a drive-in theater, so frankly, I didn’t know what to expect.
