MoCA Chinese Cinema Club: <i>Take Out</i> Night This Friday
Take Out (dirs. Sean Baker and Shih-Ching Tsou)
The Chinese Cinema Club, a collaboration between dGenerate Films and Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), is a movie club screening Chinese and Chinese American films on the first Friday of every other month.
The Club is a first step towards addressing the disappearance of cinemas from Chinatown, and its subsequent lack of public screening options. The aim will be to draw diverse movie-lovers and provide a regular space to gather, watch, discover and interact around cinema.
The series continues this Friday December 3 with Take Out, an acclaimed independent feature shot in New York’s Chinatown. For this evening only, MOCA will be offering advance purchases of a Chinese takeout dinner, to go with the screening. If you would like to participate, please indicate so when you RSVP.
Fri, Dec 3 from 7pm – 9pm
