New Parkway Theater tickets

After this October's sold-out turnout of Adorn in Oakland, it's been invited with the "Best of CineKink" program for THREE more screenings this November!

 

“Best Of CineKink” encore screenings 3x in Oakland, California

 

We had heard that the October screening CineKink’s “Best of CineKink 2019” program was a huge sold-out hit.

 

As a result of the huge turnout, Oakland’s New Parkway theater has invited CineKink back yet again for THREE encore screenings of the “Best of CineKink 2019” program in November 2019: On Friday, November 15, 9:30 pm, Saturday, November 16, 10:00 pm, and Wednesday, November 20, 9:00 pm.

 

These special evenings of film celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality as specially selected by CineKink/New York, the kinky film festival often dubbed “the X-rated Sundance.” The “Best of CineKink 2019” program features award-winning selections in this sex-positive and kink-friendly showcase, ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit – and everything in between!

 

I’ve personally seen almost all of these films, and I can definitely recommend this  program. I’m super sad that I cannot be there in person to take questions, but I feel sure it will be a fun evening for all.

 

“Adorn” and “What’s Your Policy On Orgasms?”

 

This year, we are proud that our short experimental erotic game film Adorn was selected to tour with CineKink all over the USA and Canada — so far including Oakland/SF, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles, Vegas, DC and Miami.

 

Adorn is an experimental erotic game directed by Jennifer Lyon Bell for Blue Artichoke Films, featuring brilliant music  by acclaimed folk-pop songwriter Zoe Boekbinder.

In Adorn, Sadie and Parker face each other naked; by the end they are mostly clothed and utterly exhausted. What’s in between is unique and completely improvised by the performers themselves. Restrained by the rules of their game, they create a love scene in reverse.

 

Our highly unusual film has screened at independent festivals, erotic festivals, and two dance festivals. (It’s not a dance movie — it’s 100% improvised in the moment — but it has a special dancelike quality that’s hard to explain until you se it!)

 

Plus, also selected for the tour is the documentary filmmaker Zoe D’Amaro’s charming short film “What’s Your Policy On Orgasms?”. “This  award-winning documentary features Jennifer’s work and shows “an intimate behind-the-scenes look of how she works with performers Sadie Lune and Parker Marx, and what it means to all of them.”

 

The New Parkway Theater, Oakland CA

 

The New Parkway Theater is a community-centered cinema and pub located in Oakland’s Uptown district. The theater offers “two screening rooms filled with loveseats, reclaimed vintage chairs, and other unique seating perfect for dates, group outings, and solo trips to the movies.
