It’s time for the Cinefamily’s annual Labor Day BBQ & The Five Minutes Game tonight at 6 pm at the Silent Movie Theatre. Here’s how it works: They play five minutes of 15 movies that you’ve probably never seen before (and many not available on DVD) and the audience votes on what movie they want screened to watch in its entirety. To kick off the evening, the Cinefamily will show a short doc its own creation, which follows the crew as they scour thrift stores & mom 'n pop video shop for Five Minutes Game VHS fodder. Bring something to cook on our grill, too. Tickets are $10.
