VHS SOCIAL: CINDERELLA

Wednesday, June 22 at 8 PM

In our first VHS Video Social, we’ll take a musical trip down memory with the spectacular CINDERELLA starring Brandy and Whitney Houston. Produced nearly twenty years ago, this multiracial TV adaptation bursts open the Rogers and Hammerstein musical with progressive color-blind casting and hypersaturated numbers. Join us as we relive the modern classic. Impossible? It’s possible!

Programmed by Navid Sinaki and Brenda Contreras, the VHS VIDEO SOCIAL series takes pleasure in the analogue buzz of VHS tapes while exploring cult pop culture.

Doors open at 7:30pm. $5 suggested donation
