Scalarama 2015


Knowing no borders and making friends with all who will come sit with it in the dark, Scalarama is back for its fifth year. Clear your diaries as Scalarama exhibitors across the land steer thousands of minds through time, space and celluloid on a cosmic quest to make September the unofficial month of cinema. Let Scalarama be your treasure map and start an adventure, discovering cinemas old and new, borrowed and blue, in fields, on boats and even in a zoo!

But most importantly, don’t forget to VOTE CINEMA! Forget phone lines and ballot boxes, if you care about cinema survival, VOTE CINEMA by moving your bodies into the orbits of others, expand horizons together and make every September memorable. Someone proposed at a scratch’n’sniff screening of Polyester last year… how will you top that in 2015?

Go start a revolution with PROJECT 51! Protect a projectionist with CELLULOID FOREVER! Be recruited into the black blocks of VHSTIVAL! Raise a glass for SECOND RUN DVD’s tenth birthday! And polish those turds as JOHN WATERS is coming!
