Conscientious Projector

A favorite pastime of mine is watching a good film. Dramas, comedies…dramadies, you name it. And over the last few years documentaries have been my new craze. Actually, I can’t get enough of them. But while prices soar and wages maintain, I no longer can afford the luxury of sitting in a darkened theatre. Netflix is great and affordable, but sometimes I miss that smell of buttered popcorn (even though I don’t eat it) and the soured soda stuck to floor underneath my feet. It’s the experience.

Then I discovered Conscientious Projector, a group hosted by Sustainable World that meets once a month in Pasadena’s Armory Center for the Arts. Documentaries pertaining to critical issues are screened, followed by guest speakers and filmmakers who lead rich discussions to the evening. I only wish it were every week! Nonetheless, every second Thursday of the month, I am guaranteed that cinema-going experience that I love so much – only it’s free!

Join the community next month, July 10th at 7 p.m. in historic Old Pasadena at 145 N. Raymond Ave. Take the Gold Line to Memorial Park Station. Admission is free.

Free movies, and conscientious? I’m in! I also heard they serve fair trade snacks for a suggested donation…yum.

I’ve just moved to Pasadena… Thank you for the sobering documentary about plastics yesterday (7/9/09)! I only wished there were a petition to sign or volunteer recruitment… it was perfect: a bunch of lefty people in a room watching political films. Public officials have people who count the letters by pro/con by issue… it’s a numbers game. And people (spectators) will never be the same once they take that step forward. If your organization is tabling or canvassing a public event in a letter-writing campaign, I’d like to volunteer. Thanks!

Very cool! Is there a contact for submitting our film to be screened? We recently completed a 6-part documentary about child prostitution in Thailand and our office was headquartered in Pasadena until last month when we moved to Northern California. You can watch the trailer at http://thesoldproject.com/film/. It seems like your screenings would be a great place to screen our film and create awareness!

Thanks!
