Movie screenings, DJs, live art at Lakeland Village
If you go What: Silent Cinema: Keep Tahoe Blue Benefit
When: 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 20
Where: Lakeland Village
Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door
A unique blend of movie screenings, DJs and live art will be part of an evening of silent entertainment at Lakeland Village Wednesday, July 20.
FNCTN will feature two movie screenings, a concert on the beach and a fundraiser to benefit Keep Tahoe Blue starting at 7 p.m. that night.
“Silent disco headphones will be the key element,” according to a press release from FNCTN. “Guests will receive a pair of Bluetooth headphones for the evening that have three separate channels. Each channel will be broadcasting movies and music at the same time and you can choose your entertainment.”
“The Meaning of Wild,” a documentary highlighting the Tongass National Forest of southeast Alaska, and “One Day in Yosemite,” a 14-minute story told through the lenses of 30 videographers in Yosemite, will be shown at the event. DJ Roger That! and DJ Rizzo will perform, and Will Eichelberger is set to create live art.
“At FNCTN we are always looking to fill the void in entertainment,” said Mike Peron of FNCTN, in the release. “We ask ourselves — what’s missing in Lake Tahoe, what would we personally want to attend, what do our friends want to attend, and how do we make it different than what’s been done before? This has never been done before!”
The event is open to all ages. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, with proceeds going to Keep Tahoe Blue. Discounted tickets can be purchased at http://www.mkt.com/fnctn. Guests are encouraged to dress warmly and bring blankets for the beach. Seating will be provided for the movie. Parking will be limited and organizers encourage people ride bikes, park in the Bijou Shopping Center, Timber Cove parking lot or on Herbert Avenue.
