So when was a theater more than just a theater? Downtown Indie is not like the ‘others’ out there; it shows the newest indie movies and documentaries, has a rooftop bar, artwalk, film festivals, bands, events, DJ’s, and did I mention we have a bar?!? On the occasion that I’m bartending, I make a MEAN but BEAUTIFUL Soju or Sake SURPRISE. You might ask “what the hell is that?” It’s a pleasant mixture of soju or sake with a splash of champagne and a hint of fruity goodness. I make them with love, but the love is free. I’ll be bartending on Jan. 28, that night we are screening the 2010 Sundance film TEENAGE PAPARAZZO. Yes, the DTI (downtown independent) will be screening the same film as sundance…WHAT? yes, you don’t have to pay for a plane ticket or obscene prices for a hotel in Utah = ugh. Its only at the Downtown Indie, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Sundance in LA, come get yo’ film geek ON!
Being a projectionist at the DTI is wonderful. I get to watch thee latest indie films, then get paid for it. (I bartend sometimes too) All the people I work with are amazing, wonderful, and talented. The way we work together and get drunk together…well, lets just say our xmas party was a memorable bonding experience (for those who remember). Much love to the DTI.
