Canyon Cinema 50
The Canyon Cinema Co-op was
officially incorporated in 1967 and for the last fifty years has been one of
the world’s preeminent sources for artist-made moving image work. In
recognition of this important milestone we’ve assembled a program of films that
best represents the wide range of work in the collection with an emphasis on
West Coast/Bay Area artists. The program spans five decades and includes a
mixture of perennial favorites and some hidden gems.
