Two events coming up at the Adam Art Gallery

B-Movie Nite!
Thursday 7 February, 7pm
Adam Art Gallery

Join us for the screening of local shorts by David Donaldson:

30 Arthur Street, dir. David Donaldson, 2007. 20 min.

Beep Beep and The Island Of Terror, dir. Dave Donaldson, 2012. 15 min. (World Premiere!!)

+ Local Music Video Sampler

30 Arthur Street was a Wellington musical institution. For more than 18 years the building was used as rehearsal space and studio, in which time 20 plus albums and nine feature film scores were partly or wholly recorded there. Directed by Plan 9 composer David Donaldson, this impressionistic doco chronicles some of the building's musical history, plus its destruction to make way for a bypass. Amongst the musicians featured are Toby Laing from Fat Freddy’s Drop, drummer Anthony Donaldson, and ex-Mutton Bird David Long.

Beer and sausages at 7pm, screening at 8pm
