Prom Night With Aurora Picture Show

Why not celebrate the first week of school with a prom? Saturday night, Aurora Picture Show did just that. The El Dorado Ballroom was appropriately decorated with streamers, balloons, tacky prom photo sets and of course, spiked punch. People even decorated themselves, going all-out in poly-blend, pastel colors, big hair and makeup that would make Lady Gaga proud.

Aurora Picture Show's mission is to expand the cinematic experience with artist-made, non-commercial film/video and get the community involved by having at least three events every month. For its most recent one, Aurora collaborated with A/V Geeks in a screening curated by Skip Elsheimer. A/V Geeks is an extensive collection of over 22,000 collected and rescued 16mm films that travel around the nation. The evening started with the films As Others See Us (1953), Getting Closer (1975) and It's a Thought (1980), and ended with dancing, spiked-punch guzzling, and of course making out in the corners.
