MONSTER PARTY WANTS YOU TO GET "REEL"!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, get a peek at the diary of one of most sought-after film projectionists in Hollywood. Pour yourself a stiff drink and crack open a box of MIKE AND IKE, as we present... CONFESSIONS OF A FILM PROJECTIONIST!!!
Brace yourself for apocalyptic tales of projection booth catastrophes, theater politics, unruly audiences, special-ed splatter, zombie rationalizations (yes, again!), A-List security guards, seedy movie palaces, and celebrities who make you want to... well... let's save that for epsiode. Wink!
This episode's confessing projectionist also happens to be a talented comedian, podcaster, film programmer, and has a pretty amazing movie poster collection. She's worked at such celebrated theaters as THE ARCLIGHT, NEW BEVERLY CINEMA, THE CINEFAMILY AT THE SILENT MOVIE THEATER, GRAUMAN'S CHINESE THEATER, and MANY more! MONSTER PARTY welcomes... GARIANA ABEYTA! (OUT OF PRINT, POPCORN MAFIA, THE SET-UP, THE ROTTEN TOMATOES SHOW)
Is that flickering light coming from the back of the theater a glowing symbol of dreams brought to life? Or did a nitrate film just catch fire? Listen, and find out!
NOTE: THE CINERAMA FILM GARIANA TALKS ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE IS, "HOW THE WEST WAS WON." YOUR WELCOME.
