This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

The Projectionist is a documentary, book and multi-media exhibition that explores one man’s lifelong fascination with the golden ago of film and, in particular, the grand movie palace. The exhibition features a fully operational 1920s style movie theater that was created in the basement of Middletown native, Gordon Brinckle. A documentary, created by Kendall Messick, provides a penetrating gaze into the life of this self-taught artist. The narrative follows the course of Brinckle’s life, revealing the profound desire, frustration and motivation that propelled him to create such a distinctive outsider art environment. Original works on paper by Brinkle such as blueprints and floor plans and fine art photographs by Messick of Brinkle operating the theater will also be on view.
