Come one, come all – to Balagan’s Electric Bioscope Show! (at 128 Brookside Ave, Jamaica Plain, MA)

Witness a magnificent collection of “living photographs” in a carnivalesque program of ephemeral shorts, curated by local film collector Albert Steg (creator of Zampano’s Playhouse)! Feast your ears on the live musical accompaniment of “The Russian Band”!

Feeling adventurous? Then join us beforehand for an experimental workshop wherein we attempt reversal processing of film using only readily-available, non-toxic ingredients such spearmint, thyme, coffee, and hydrogen peroxide.

Feeling lucky? Then consider purchasing a raffle ticket to win great rewards like subscriptions and single issues of magazines such as Canyon Cinemazine, Incite, Art Forum, Cineaste, Cinema Scope, and other prizes.

BYOB and relax with us afterward to the sounds of selections from the Balagan curators' record collections.

5:30-7:30PM ~ Hand-processing workshop. Contact us in advance to RSVP as space is limited:

8:00PM ~ Film screening with live music
