The Five Minutes Game + Labor Day Potluck!


It’s the Super Bowl for VHS fans!  Dynasty Typewriter, Voyager Institute and the Vidiots Foundation present an interactive update on a classic video store tradition.  Plus, it’s also a holiday potluck.  Stuff like chips and drinks are not encouraged; please bring a dish or other fun, picnic-worthy item!


*Every* movie is fascinating for its first five minutes: that brief moment before its characters and mood either hook you or lose you.


For the Five Minutes Game, we’ve lined up fifteen unpredictable movies you’ve never seen before, most of them unavailable on disc or streaming.  We’ll watch the first five minutes of each -- and you, the audience, votes on what we then watch in full.


Each edition of the Game is packed with unforgettable surprises from moviedom’s dusty back channels; if you think you’ve uncovered all the strange videos left to discover, think again.  Bring your closest moviegoing pals, and let’s get started...
