Come see yesterday's tomorrows -- today! Tonight, we'll sift through the last 40 years of big scary machines and all the mysterious things they did. Machines that were, at the time, cutting edge but are now antiquated and often down right quaint.
We'll be screening short films by pioneers like Stan Vandeerbek, Eric Siegel among others and some documentaries from that time dealing with everything from synthesizers to computer hacking, a 1969 industrial film's idea of life in 1999 (and see how much they got right and wrong) and various pop cultural detritus showing how we ate it all up (Bubblicious Pac Man TV commercials, news stories on video game trends, etc.) After the show, stick around for a show-and-tell demo of some curious analog contraptions.
