Temescal Street Cinema

On September 3rd, Big Red will be the featured, organic beer garden for the Temescal Street Cinema.

The Temescal Street Cinema is a free outdoor summer movie series featuring the work of Bay Area film and video artists in the Temescal District of North Oakland. Each week opens with live music and features several creative local food vendors. Since it began in 2008, the goal has been to highlight the work of Bay Area artists, while bringing people together in a dynamic community event that fosters connections in the community.
