First Thursdays

Celebrate the beginning of Pride Month and the opening of MATRIX 194 with a night of music, art, and films. Listen to artist Kyle Dunn in conversation with curator of contemporary art Jared Quinton at 6pm. Vibe to tunes outside in the central courtyard, then move to the theater at 7pm to view a pair of short films by Pedro Almodóvar. In Strange Way of Life, Almodóvar crafts a hyper-male Western melodrama that explores the intensity of middle-aged romance with Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal. The Human Voice showcases Tilda Swinton’s mesmerizing portrayal of a woman grappling with the aftermath of a relationship.
