Summer Cinema on Center Street 

When: Sat., Aug. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free; $5 chair rental
Forget what you remember about last summer’s outdoor movie screenings in the Bank of America parking lot on Center Street (2219 Center St., Berkeley). The savvy curators at UC Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archives are organizing this year’s series (which is still co-sponsored by the Downtown Berkeley Association and also aptly located at the site of the BAM/PFA’s future home), and have shifted the aesthetic from family-friendly street fest to eclectic art-house mixer. The “Cerebral Cinema” series includes offbeat 35mm films, insightful lectures, and later start times replacing last year’s assemblage of food trucks, costume contests, and blockbuster movies. Its premiere, on Saturday, Aug. 4, features live music by the Smooth Toad jug band, a lecture on “Connectomics,” sound-emitting sculptures, and a twilight screening of the 1963 flick The Atomic Brain. Series continues on Aug. 11 and 18. 7:30 p.m., free. 510-642-5249 or
