FLIC’s co-founders, Emily Lawrence and Dan Spiegler, believe a movie-going experience can be about more than box office receipts. FLIC’s mission involves community-building through art, film and personal connection to both.
While most movie theaters bring people together but discourage interaction with a sit-down, shut-up, watch-this & get-out ritual, FLIC plans to encourage interaction by hosting cocktails and cartoons prior to each movie and discussions afterward. They’ll also be featuring local artists and live performers as well as serving local food, wine and beer.
FLIC’s premier event is Wednesday, April 28 at BMoCA (the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art). They’ll be showing the film “A Town Called Panic” and featuring food from A Spice of Life and Boulder Popcorn. Cocktails and cartoons start at 7:15 pm, and the feature film begins at 8 pm. Tickets are $12 ($8 for BMoCA members).
Hope to see you there!
