The Removals DIY Cleveland Screening



The Removals Collage | TDR Radio Waves Blog 2016

All-Star Two Dollar Radio Street Team Member, McKenzie Merriman (McKizzle), hosted a DIY house screening of THE REMOVALS in Cleveland last weekend, and we think it’s the coolest thing ever. McKenzie began her Street Team career helping us sell books at the 400 West Rich Farmer’s Market in Columbus after her best friend and Two Dollar Radio staff member, Molly, asked her to sign up. Molly was lucky enough to attend the house screening in Cleveland, and I was lucky enough to hear all about it!

THE REMOVALS celebrated two stellar screenings in Columbus, but nothing as grass-roots and intimate as the house screening in 'Believeland.' In asking what the inspiration was for hosting the event, McKenzie said, “I wanted to share the kind of work Two Dollar Radio does with people in Cleveland. Cleveland is a very communal and DIY centered city, and I knew we could get a good group of thoughtful, open minded art lovers to watch and experience the movie as a group. Also, the house where we hosted it has been known to throw movie nights for quite a while now, so I've seen how that living room can make a great, intimate viewing space.”

After watching the movie, the group discussed the film’s aesthetics and the nature of reality and revolutions...then moved to American Politics and how the film’s narrative functions in reference to our current political state. Molly is quoted saying, “I know that sounds boring but it wasn’t!” We'll take her word for it!

In wrapping things up, McKenzie shared a haiku she wrote about the movie.

I do well alone
and love looking at maps.
Where do I sign up?
