VIVA VHS! Saturday, August 8th at Northwest Film Forum

Join us for our special tribute to the VHS format and all the films that are simply too powerful for DVD! We've partnered with Northwest Film Forum for this event to raise awareness of the fact that VHS is home to thousands, even tens of thousands, of films that are not and may never be available on a digital format. We'll be screening clips from some of the most brain-bustingly bizarre and momentously heartfelt triumphs of the video age. We also want to recognize the role that independent video stores play in preserving these artifacts of our cultural heritage. VHS is crucial not just as nostalgia, but also because it's a viable way to grow as a person who appreciates movies. This show will stand as a tribute to all those still willing to rewind a tape because they know someone else is just waiting to watch it. The evening's festivities will include a virtual VHS cover art gallery, contests with fabulous prizes, a squadron of Sasquatch and plenty of surprises. Refreshments will be available in the cinema with drink specials all evening long. Please join us in paying homage to the vanishing magic of videocassettes and raise a glass to the home viewing days of yore. LONG LIVE VHS!
