‘Davey B. Gravey’s Tiny Cinema’ shows films in Vail, July 5

VAIL — The eclectic Davey B. Gravey's Tiny Cinema is coming to Vail on Tuesday courtesy of Vail's Art in Public Places. Enjoy the free vintage short silent films projected in the format of Super 8 film in this tiny, four-seat mobile movie house. This one-of-a-kind film experience will be at the entrance to the Lionshead Mall from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and on the International Bridge in Vail Village from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The intimate theater setting creates a unique experience for the audience. While viewing the silent classic short films, something unexpected occurs: Gravey chimes in with his live acoustic accompaniment playing his electric ukulele scores to the films. Each film lasts approximately 2 minutes, leaving the viewer with a nostalgic sense of film in our age of digital media.

Gravey, also known as David Weaver, is the artistic genius 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. Boulder-based Weaver studied film while at Emerson College in Boston.
