key art by Mike "BlindBuzta" Manning
Last year was a blast and its many successes were quite memorable. This year, we wanted to make sure we were taking a step forward. And so, I was tasked with finding a suitable venue where we could put even more emphasis on high quality cinematic exhibition of the films. I sought out an intimate "movie theater experience" where the films could be projected in 1080 HD. And we found it here...
251 S. Main Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012 [google maps]
This theater was completely renovated from the ground up with state of the art, clean and modern amenities. It is so new that Google Street View still only shows how it looked "before" the renovation. I've included more recent photos at the bottom.
The Downtown Independent is an awesome NEW art house theater with two rows of home theater style recliners and stadium seating for the rest. It has a nice big screen and top of the line projection and sound with the following technical specifications:
- 236 Stadium style seats including 16 reclining sofa seats.
- Barco iD H500 digital projector
- 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound with JBL loudspeakers, QSC amplification and
Dolby CP650 cinema processor
DATE & TIME
Saturday, July 25th @ 8pm to Midnight
SLATE OF FILMS
Without repeating any of the films that screened last year, we have already selected a handful of noteworthy shorts from past DVXfests and have thrown in what are sure to be some unforgettable surprises too. And of course, the evening will be webcast live as we countdown all the QuestFest finalists, culminating in the top three winners.
Street parking is FREE after 6pm. The lot next door is $8 (Welcome to LA, folks!) and CASH ONLY. I would advise coming early enough to grab street parking, or carpooling to share the cost of the lot.
FREE public WiFi. So bring your laptop and and keep up with the discussion from members watching you over streaming video. ATM Machine in the lobby, so you can freely forget that the parking lot was CASH ONLY until you're pulling in... and panicking.
There is a Pitfire Pizza half a block down on the corner of Main and 2nd. I'll be busy prepping for the screening, but others could grab dinner here beforehand. Unless you plan to fill up on free popcorn.

Don't book your tickets until we give you dates... Until everything is official <knock on wood> anything can happen.
We aren't anticipating problems, but you never know, and we still have a couple more details to hammer before the contract is final. That's why we didn't give dates and times yet But, should have them hammered down and out to you folks to make travel arrangements by the end of the week.
