"They're like a cinephile Daft Punk, only without the money and chicks and Pharrell won't answer their calls." --F'd In Park Slope
Obsolete Cinema is many things: a blog, a screening series, a way of life. We have shown free movies in Brooklyn, New York, since 2011, and now we're taking over the Internet.
Inspired by a warehouse full of VHS tapes that founder Josh Machlin lived in, the screening series holds a monthly residency at Freddy’s Bar. Every fourth Sunday of every month, Josh and co-host Tony Nigro give bar patrons a nostalgic experience of free movies, trivia, prizes and more. The goal: a fever dream of home video's golden era. The movies you think you remember on a format you can't forget.
