July 11 | Smiling Through the Apocalypse: Esquire in the 60's
Director: Thomas Hayes
(2013, Documentary, 98 minutes)
In the jungle of the American apocalypse of race, war, and demonstration, came Harold Hayes, the swinging editor and cultural provocateur of the iconic Esquire Magazine of the 1960s. With his son Tom as tour guide, Smiling Through the Apocalypse tells the story of how Hayes transformed Esquire Magazine into a stable of fearless, brash, and irreverent journalism of the most turbulent decade since the Civil War. By harnessing irony, satire and a novelistic approach to reporting current affairs, Hayes created a magazine where point-of-view and iconic art and photography were put first and foremost. Soho Taco food truck will be on-site for dining options.
August 1 | From Nothing to Something
Director: Tim Cawley
(2012, Documentary, 79 minutes)
Everyone has ideas. But what where do they come from? And what ensures they keep coming? How do you sort the genius ideas from the useless ones? Why invest all this hope and energy into making things in the first place? From Nothing to Something profiles creative thinkers across a spectrum of disciplines and finds the methods, habits, beliefs and neuroses that lead to breakthrough ideas. This is a thoughtful, intimate, often funny look at the creative process - straight from the brains of some of our culture’s most accomplished and inspiring talents. StuffNItBurger food truck will be on-site for dining options.

Directors: Mike Bernard, Gavin Froome
(2012, Documentary, 56 minutes)
A core group of architects embraced the West Coast from Vancouver to LA with its particular geography and values and left behind a legacy of beautiful and inspired dwellings. Today, architects explore and celebrate the principles established by their predecessors. Discussions with several architects including Dion Neutra - son and partner of Modernist pioneer Richard Neutra, Michelle Kaufmann, Barbara Lamprecht, Pierluigi Serraino, John Cava, James Steele, James Cheng, and Henrik Bull give insight into what made Modernism on the West Coast so unique and how this approach is even more relevant to our lives today. StuffNItBurger food truck will be on-site for dining options.
October 3 | 16 Acres
Director: Richard Hankin
(2012, Documentary, 92 minutes)
The rebuilding of ground zero is one of the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. From the beginning, the effort has been fraught with controversy, delays and politics. The struggle has encompassed eleven years, nineteen government agencies, a dozen projects and over $20 billion. Aside from the staggering engineering challenges of the site itself, a major complicating factor in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center is the sheer number of interested parties. According to The New York Times, "Where some saw lucrative real estate, others saw a graveyard. Where some saw Rockefeller Center or Lincoln Center or Grand Central Terminal, others saw Gettysburg." StuffNItBurger food truck will be on-site for dining options.
November 7 | Diller, Scofidio + Renfro: Remaining Lincoln Center and the High Line
Directors: Muffie Dunn, Tom Piper
(2012, Documentary, 54 minutes)
Diller Scofidio + Renfro has long been at the forefront of design. The interdisciplinary design firm, founded in 1979, first stirred interest with its provocative exhibitions of theoretically based projects that blurred the boundaries between art and architecture. With the almost simultaneous completion of two large-scale projects in New York City — the renovation of the High Line and revitalization and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts — Diller Scofidio + Renfro has galvanized the public's attention. StuffNItBurger food truck will be on-site for dining options.
