Help Finish SF's New Vortex Room

$9,770 of $10,900 goal

Raised by 157 people in 42 months



THE VORTEX ROOM - San Francisco's *only* Archive, Film Cult and Embassy to the Stars - was brought to a sudden hault in its cosmic mission due to a lost eviction battle in 2014. Patrons of the cinematic oasis have experienced the best in cult cinema, handpicked from its very own film archive as well as star-studded live entertainment from its intimate stage. Those underground explorers, film hounds and true blooded followers believed it to be lost to us forever.

THIS IS NOT THE CASE!! Like an Egyptian Bennu fusing cosmic essence with a Grecian Phoenix, the Vortex has divined a new location right here still in our fair city of San Francisco!! Right now construction is underway for a better, stronger, faster center for the darkest in cinematic arts, but we are urgently in need of your assistance to make it a fully operational Vortex! Our goals include building a home for its one-of-a-kind 5000 plus film archive, creating a new VORTEX ROOM cinema viewing room and continuing to be ground zero for scrupulous film enthusiasts in this city and the world over! With daily news of San Francisco’s struggling underground art community, this is a potential story of glorious rebirth. The Vortex shall rise from the ashes again! We have a space secured, but design and construction are taking much longer than expected. Please consider any size donation to be part of this special community that celebrates film and what the VORTEX means to all of us….and PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! Every bit helps at this crucial junction of the future of SF’s ONLY Vortex Room.

Wow.
It's been a wild and weary journey but I am happy to say that I'm not going to let that be the last word on the Vortex Room!
It is so damn close but I still need to dial in the last details as I am raising the screen in the next few days for the very first time in the new Vortex!
