Burn Night

Saturday, August 30, 2014 - 8:00pm

Saturday August 30th | doors at 8pm - man burns approx 11:30pm

Casket Cinema kicks off its 7th season with a end of summer party and a screening of the live simulcast of the Man burning from Black Rock City. This special evening will be hosted by Casket Arts's David Schnack, a veteran of Burning Man, In his words, 

"I've always wanted to throw a party during Burning Man for people back home and not taking the journey to the desert this year opens that possibility. Join Mark Wojahn and I in our studio in Casket Arts for a night of Burnerliciousness. We'll provide an atmosphere of music, photos, video, art and dust. You bring your beautiful selves. It's even better if you show up in Burner attire! AND! At midnight-ish (depending on what's happening in Black Rock City) we'll watch a big screen projection of the webcast of the Man burning! We'll be streaming BMIR - Burning Man Information Radio to see what craziness they're playing. Yes, there will be food and drink. And dancing. And maybe fire..." 

Art Cars, Bikes and costumes welcome! So come to Casket Cinema for our first ever live simulcast of the Man Burning.  We hope you can all make "Burn Night", Saturday, August 30th, at 8pm-late

Film Synopsis: 

Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the American Labor Day holiday. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday evening. The event is described as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.[1][2][3][4] Burning Man is organized by Black Rock City, LLC and has been running since 1986. The event is similar to another event, the burning of Zozobra, or "Old Man Gloom" which has taken place on Labor Day weekend in Santa Fe, NM since 1926. In 2010, 51,515 people attended Burning Man.[5] 2011 attendance was capped at 50,000 participants and the event sold out on July 24.[6] In April 2011, Larry Harvey announced that the organization had begun the process of transitioning management of Burning Man over to a new non-profit organization called the "Burning Man Project".
