THEATER | "Endangered Features" 

In a city known for its film preservation, "Endangered Features," a one-man play appearing at MuCCC, seems a perfect fit. The play is a coming-of-age story about a young man whose love for film turns him into an accidental archivist. After falling in love with escapist cinema as a young child, the young man goes on to grow up working in a neighborhood movie theater, preserving cinema at one of the world's top film archives, and traveling to India to teach a new generation of preservationists in the craft. A play about the evolution of film from its analog days to modern cutting-edge digital, "Endangered Features" is both written and performed by Spencer Christiano (directed by Enobong S. Okung), and aims to "commemorate what we have lost" and the power of film to preserve and celebrate our past.

"Endangered Features" will be performed at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue), Thursday, August 4, through Saturday, August 6, at 8 p.m. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, August 6. Tickets are $12 at the door, $10 in advance, and $8 under the age of 30. Check for tickets.
