MINORITY REPORT Friday December 18 8pm @ Subrosa

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In presents


Friday December 18th 8pm
At Subrosa, 703 Pacific Avenue

Recently, there have been some high profile incidents of violence in Santa Cruz. Concerned citizens have rallied around the cause of "Take Back Santa Cruz", calling for increased surveillance of public places and tougher policing to "rid the town of undesirables." This Steve Spielberg thriller, based on the short story by Philip K. Dick, reminds us of the dangers of inviting an all-seeing government to monitor every action of our lives and of the risks of arresting people for a crime they have yet to commit.

This screening will include a post-film discussion of local issues and possible approaches.

In the year 2054, in Washington, D.C., murder has been eliminated thanks to Pre-crime, a program that uses the visions of three psychics to arrest and imprison would-be murderers before they have a chance to kill. When a Pre-crime enforcer finds himself accused of the future murder of a man he's never met, his faith in Pre-crime is instantly shaken.

Plus thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, great company and a guaranteed good time!

Bring anything you need to be comfortable, friends, snacks to share. Donations to support the project are more than welcome.

Benefit Screening Of A Local Feature Film! Sun Dec 13th

Dear Guerilla Drive-In Supporters,
 I am excited to announce a screening of a local film. This is not a Guerilla Drive-In event at one of our guerilla locations, but it is a film that was written, directed and produced by a local Santa Cruz filmmaker. It stars Santa Cruzians; it was filmed in Santa Cruz, and it was edited by my wonderful brother-in-love (aka brother-in-law). It is a film I am excited about, and I wanted to share it with you all!

Join Us For A Benefit Screening Of A Local Feature Film!

The Jesus Factor, written and directed by local award winning filmmaker Cheri Lovedog, (Prey for Rock and Roll, Hollywood Trash and Tinsel), will be showing one evening only at the Rio Theater, located at 1205 Soquel Ave. Santa Cruz, CA, Sunday, December 13 at 6:30pm.

The Jesus Factor takes an unconventional, and often times humorous, look at family, sex, gender, religion, and love etiquette…or lack thereof.  Johnny, disowned by his born again Christian family due to his choices in life, love, wardrobe and accessories, left Fresno and built himself a good life in Santa Cruz.  With a job he loves, good friends, good music, good herb and the support of a devoted girlfriend, he has become the man he was destined to be. When his sister calls and leaves a brief phone message telling him their mother died, Johnny, against the wishes of his girlfriend, decides they will attend the funeral. Uninvited, they brave Fresno and the Bible in one last attempt to inspire his sister to Love Thy Brother.

Advance tickets are $6.00 and available for purchase at Lovedog Tattoo Studio, 1115 Soquel Ave. Santa Cruz, or on-line at Brown Paper Tickets.
Night of event tickets: $8.00 at door. Student's with ID $5.00 in advance or at door.
No one turned away for lack of funds!  Bring your Friends!
