Venice is the most visited city outside of Disneyland in America.  Indeed the venue Beyond Baroque is celebrating their 50th year, and they have been the our local Venice mainstay; Beyond Baroque which has been a space for cultivating innovative artists for over 50 yrs in Los Angeles –  literature, writers, poets, thinkers, a vital center for community and art.
Beatnick, and then punk in Los Angeles, grew from this epi-center and we are proud to be  showing films about punk here in Los Angeles for the third year.
