Davey B. Gravey’s Tiny Cinema returns to Vail on Thursday, Aug. 25
VAIL — The eclectic Davey B. Gravey’s Tiny Cinema returns to Vail today, courtesy of Vail’s Art in Public Places. Free, short, Super 8-format films will be projected in this tiny, four-seat mobile movie house. This miniature film experience will be on the International Bridge in Vail Village from 4 to 10 p.m.
The intimate theater setting creates a distinctive experience for the audience. During the silent classic films, something unexpected occurs: Gravey plays acoustic scores with his electric ukulele to the films. Each film leaves the viewer with a nostalgic sense of film in our age of digital media. The lineup of classic short films today includes “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Deadly Mantis” and “Woody Woodpecker and the Termites from Mars.”
Gravey, also known as David Weaver, is the artistic mind behind this retro theater on wheels. An animated character himself in his vaudevillian style, Weaver engages the audience with his ability to lure people to his sideshow curiosity. Denver-based Weaver studied film while at Emerson College in Boston.
