Los Angeles Is Totally Radical

Exhibit A: Machine Project

Have you seen King of Kong, that documentary about extreme videogame nuts who battle over the title of World Donkey Kong Champion? If not, you’re in luck — our neighbors at the Echo Park Film Center are screening it this Thursday night.

Have you ever come out from a screening about crazy videogamers and thought that you yourself could probably pwn both those guys, if only you had a shot? This is the luckiest night of your life.

While the screening is going on next door, we’ll be giving you to the chance to start your own overblown gaming rivalry using a giant 6-foot-tall functional joystick! Come play Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and other classic-era video games projected on a wall-sized screen in the gallery.
