Don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day? Wondering what kind of person you should date? Or how you should ask that person out? Do you need instruction on how to say good night after the date is over? Fear not, young people – brillobox will answer all these questions and more on Feb. 11th when they premiere their new monthly video and audio program, Out Of Sight.
Created by Matthew Buchholz, the owner/designer of Alternate Histories, Out Of Sight seeks to highlight forgotten film treasures and music in a casual atmosphere. The series kicks off with What To Do on a Date, a collection of clips from various 1940s and 1950s educational films on dating etiquette, which is accompanied by a live DJ set of teen love songs and doo-wop. Included in the program are such campy titles as Are You Popular?, How do You Choose a Date? and Dating Dos and Don’ts, all of which stress the importance of being “fun” and “as interested in girls as in boys.” Ahh, the good old days.
Out of Sight: What To Do on a Date begins at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
