Please join us as we celebrate 2 sister microcinemas bringing the love to the people many miles away. We are honored to host Caitlin Horsmon (from Plug Cinema in Kansas City Missouri) and Charlotte Taylor (from Mechanical Eye in Asheville, North Carolina) as they wind their way through Los Angeles.
