Larry Johnson Film Series: Chat Room


Larry Johnson Film Series: Chat Room

Elective Affinities - a film series devised by Larry Johnson and William E. Jones, features works that might have shown at the Cinema Theater on Western Avenue before getting busted by the cops.  Artistic ambition, opportunism, and (of course) sexual desire intermingle, with “art films” and “nudies” colliding rather than harmonizing.


Chat Room
A seduction does not go quite as planned; rants and raves fill empty hours; words fail.

The first screening of the series presents two featurettes and a very rare short video: Christopher Munch’s film The Hours and Times, Michel Auder’s video A Coupla White Faggots Sitting Around Talking, and Larry Johnson’s Untitled (Paul Rand’s Women, 1948).


ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets are required, and are available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Limit one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.
