This new teaser celebrates the history of Girl Films & Chocolate Cinema, and gives a little peak as to what’s to come.
Found out there are ramps in Conchohocken last Friday.
The park is located at 707 Conshohocken Rd Conshohocken, PA 19428.
All of the ramps are facing the grass. I managed to ride over the humps (seen on left) on my road bike. Does not look like the equipment gets much use. Maybe they would donate to a local for their driveway. Call 610 – 834-0845.

Deathbowl to Downtown: The Evolution of Skateboarding New York City
Dir. Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski (2009)
Deathbowl to Downtown documents the shift in skateboarding primacy from the parks and the pools of sunny California in the 70’s to the gritty streets of New York in the 90’s. This transition also foretells the recent hybrid uptake of skateboard culture in Harlem and other communities of color.

In honor of the MoMA retrospective Spike Jonze: The First 80 Years, PopRally has invited producer and photographer Patrick O’Dell (of Epicly Later’d) to create a special compilation of seminal skateboard videos from the 1980s to today. Jonze, whose own contributions to the genre will be featured, notes that, “Skate videos have been a big influence and a big part of what I’ve done for a long time. They are how I got into film, actually.” This unique screening is followed by a conversation with legendary skateboarders and filmmakers, including Lance Mountain, Jake Phelps, Ty Evans, Spike Jonze, and other surprise guests.
Afterward please join us upstairs for a special performance by NO AGE.
The program begins promptly at 7:30.
You must be twenty-one or older to attend this event.
PopRally is made possible with generous support from Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine G. Farley.
Special thanks to Nike SB, Altamont and ACE HOTEL NEW YORK for their sponsorship of this event.

Guests of this event receive an exclusive limited-edition poster by Chris Johanson.
“Against a backdrop of shipyards, highway overpasses, and the explosive graffiti imagery covering the surfaces of the park, local actors and skateboarders unite to enact the tragedy of the blind king in exile.”
