Greenpoint’s own alterna-cinema Light Industry (155 Freeman Street) is having their tenth anniversary this year—and are having a party and silent auction on March 24th from 7-9pm to celebrate and raise funds. Light Industry‘s programming ranges from the rare historical film to the under-appreciated 70s art film to a LGBTQ-produced public access TV show from the 90s (tonight (3/13), Dyke TV will be screening). The space is modest—75 folding chairs, a white wall and film nerd-worthy archive. Co-founders Thomas Beard and Ed Halter curate the programming, cultivate the audiences, and maintain the performance space. It’s a cultural landmark for Greenpoint (in good company with Film Noir Cinema on Meserole Street whose programming and setup is a different vibe from Light Industry), and one that draws visitors from not only all over NYC but also other parts of the world. Below, find details for their 10th Anniversary benefit.
