CFF: Video Party Live at Cinemug

vp-logo-black Friday, April 3, 8:00 PM VIDEO PIRATES: ARTIFACTS Hosted by S. Philly’s premiere coffee/video rental shop CINEMUG! FREE ADMISSION!

Since its inception in 2012, local found footage comedy outlet Video Pirates have released two feature-length DVDs and hosted dozens of live comedy shows including a multimedia history of Pia Zadora, all within the confines of PhilaMOCA.  Now, for the first time ever (aside from a short screened at L.A.’s Cinefamily in 2013), Video Pirates will present a live show in a different room!  And a very special room at that, South Philadelphia’s brand new coffee/video rental shop Cinemug!


VIDEO PIRATES: ARTIFACTS is a special Best Of/Rarities program featuring both fan favorites and VHS-era oddities that were only screened in public once.  From post-rehab Corey Haim videos to rare Twin Peaks TV spots, this program will offer a little something for all coffee loving movie fans.  Admission is free, but seating is limited so we recommend you show up at 7:30ish for the all-Philly-themed pre-show video reel.
