On Thursday, August 5th, 2021, join us in-person under the stars for Daft Punk, Leiji Matsumoto, and director Kazuhisa Takenouchi’s Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem. Admission is exclusively by advance ticket. Tickets are free and available to the public on July 15 at 12PM ET.
The best band in the universe is kidnapped by an evil record producer, brainwashed and turned into a chart-topping pop act on Earth while their number-one fan risks everything to track down and rescue them. Anything is possible in this collaboration by legendary Japanese anime directors Leiji Matsumoto, Kazuhisa Takenouchi, and the recently defunct Daft Punk. Without dialogue, masterful animated visuals tell this epic story set only to the amazing Daft Punk album Discovery. You’ve gotta see this ONE MORE TIME!
Gates open at 7:00 PM. The safely-distanced party starts early. We’re opening the film with a live DJ set around 8:00 PM by our friends at ISO Radio and Hot Pot Community. The film will begin at dusk (around 9:00 PM) Please note physical distancing measures and precautions will be in place, and the screening will have a reduced capacity.
