“RoboCine” at the Crocker: Thursday Nov 3

The Crocker Art Museum is hosting a robot-themed film screening Thursday, inspired by California artist Clayton Bailey’s robot sculptures. Bailey’s sculptures, which are on display at the Crocker through January 15th, are creative and usually humorous, and the program for “RoboCine” seems to follow in this vein.

Among the excerpts that will be shown are the Italian silent film Mechanical Man, a 1950s episode of Captain Z-ro, and Gumby’s Robot Rumpus. This screening is part of a series called Film Frame at the Crocker, and it’s presented in collaboration with Movies on a Big Screen.

The screening starts at 7:00. Tickets are $12 for non-members, $6 for members. No word on whether Doughbot donuts will be served.

Buy tickets on the Crocker Museum Website or call 916-808-1182 to place an order.
