Everybody’s favorite four-seat, mobile, musical movie house — Davey B. Gravey’s Tiny Cinema — has been zipping around Colorado this summer, delighting handfuls of movie-goers one little 8mm film at a time. And now, just as the sun begins to set on summer, the Cinema will bring its magic to Vail on Thursday, August 25.
For the uninitiated, the Tiny Cinema — named Westword's Best Cinema on Wheels in 2015 - is a beloved mobile movie house created and hosted by the carnivalesque Davey B. Gravey (aka David Weaver) that seats just a quartet of viewers. Inside the venue, they're shown short and silent Super 8mm films — including Gravey's new science-fiction tiny epic, Moonglow — while he plays a live soundtrack on his tiny guitar.
Thanks to Vail’s Art in Public Places program, the Tiny Cinema will roll onto the International Bridge of Vail Village at 4 p.m. on August 25, and show films until 10 p.m., including Alice in Wonderland, The Deadly Mantis and Woody Woodpecker and the Termites From Mars. Admission is free.
Experiencing the Tiny Cinema is a perfect way to start saying your long goodbye to summer. “I couldn’t be more excited to share some tiny movies with the fine people of Vail, Colorado,” says Davey B. Gravey. “Literally, I’ve reached my excitement limit, and it’s freaking me out!”
Tiny Cinema rolls onto the International Bridge in Vail Village this Thursday, September 25, from 4 to 10 p.m. Admission is free and seating is limited in short time chunks.
