    LEVEL 2: VOTE OR DARE

    You are invited to our Headquarters Grand Opening! $15 and up gets you the exclusive chance to vote on which film we screen at the event. You decide: Madonna’s "Truth or Dare" or "Contemporary Color".

    "Contemporary Color" is an impressionistic experience by award-winning Court 13 documentary filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross. This newly released documentary features musical giant David Byrne performing live with ten elite color guard teams. "Truth or Dare" shows Madonna at the zenith of her Vogue-era celebrity. An ahead of its time documentary masterpiece.

    Consider it a dance-off. The film with the most votes at the end of our Kickstarter will be developed into a full party theme for our grand opening and will be our debut film screening in collaboration with Shotgun Cinema New Orleans.
