The Trestle Inn
11th & Callowhill, Philadelphia, PA
On Wednesday, November 14, 2012, the Secret Cinema returns to The Trestle Inn, the popular “Whiskey and Go Go” nightspot in Philadelphia’s emerging “loft district.” On that night we’ll revisit a favorite Secret Cinema program concept that we last presented nine years ago,* Exotica Music Films. This collection of ultra-rare footage from a variety of sources — including very early TV shows and film jukeboxes from the 1940s — offers a chance to hear, and see, a wondrous assortment of international music (both authentic and gloriously fake), from a carefree, boozy time, before David Byrne rendered “World Music” a politically-correct bore.
All of the films will be projected from 16mm film prints on a giant movie screen (not video).
There will be one complete show, starting at 8:00 pm. Admission is $7.00,
