Cinebash 2018: Saul Bass

What is Cinebash? Translated literally, Cinebash is a film party. This unforgettable evening will blend art installations, food, music, dance, and other elements for an immersive and multisensory experience celebrating the cinema arts.

This year’s Cinebash is themed around the work of graphic designer Saul Bass, best known for his motion picture title sequences, including Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Psycho, promotional movie posters for such films as Exodus, The Shining and West Side Story, as well as some of the world’s most recognizable logos.

  • Location: Atlanta Contemporary
  • Tickets: $35 in advance and $40 at the door

Cinebash party guests will step into the world of Saul Bass via a collection of art installations that make dynamic use of light, color, and movement, conceived and produced under the creative direction of Danny Davis of Protect Awesome, known for his ambitious and wildly imaginative work with such clients as Goat Farm Arts Center, Burning Man and Atlanta Contemporary. From 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, Taste of Atlanta will bring an assortment of delicious bites from restaurants Alon's Bakery & Market, 1KEPT, City Barbeque, DAS BBQ, and FLIP Burger Boutique.
