Oddball Films and guest curator Christine Kwon present SNACK TIME!, with a live performance by Korean American musician Donghoon Han and indie stalwart Caleb Pate from Seventeen Evergreen. SNACK TIME! is the free-flowing combination of film, music, dance and, of course, ultimate snacks. Inspired by 50s-70s camp and absurdist media, SNACK TIME! showcases vintage commercials of our favorite childhood junk foods, alien encounters in rare B-movies, and psychedelic LSD-infused segments of the Be@tles Magical My$tery Tour (1967)— all the colors of the rainbow! Other highlights include 1970s Breakfast Commercials, Vintage Cigarette Commercials, and the animated anti-smoking cartoon The Huffless Puffless Dragon (1964). We'll have beer, and a snack time intermission, finishing off with a dance party for everyone!
Date: Friday, February 22, at 8:00pm
Venue: Oddball Films, 275 Capp Street San Francisco
Admission: $10.00 Limited Seating RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 558-8117
1970s Breakfast Commercials (Color, 1970s)
One fantasy follows another in this slate of commercials that enable even the liberated woman to make her Joe happy with the perfect cup of joe. Not convinced? Take it from Academy Award winning actress Patricia Neal, who certainly seems to be “the boss in the house.”
Magical My$tery Tour (Color, 1967)
Ringo St@rr plays the passenger of a Panorama coach who begins to experience strange things at the whim of four magicians (played by other members of the band), featuring the best of nonsensical Be@tles hits, including I Am the Walrus and more.
Costume Party (Color)
Two friends prepare for a party, but continually change their outfits after peaking at what the other's wearing, culiminating in a frisky girl fight.
Long before the advent of the e-cigarette, the tobacco filled sticks for cool kids and moms alike graced the TV screen in numerous incarnations.
The Huffless, Puffless Dragon (Color, 1964)
It's hard to be a fire-breathing terror when your lungs are tired from smoking in this animated warning against the dangers of cigarette use.
