MORE from Observatory:

As mentioned in this previous post, The Midnight Archive is a new web-based documentary series “centered around the esoteric and always exotic personalities that spring from Observatory,” the Brooklyn-based event/gallery space I founded a few years ago. The series is created and directed by film-maker Ronni Thomas, who has plans to upload approximately one new episode per week to the new Midnight Archive website.

Episode two of The Midnight Archive–entitled Occult New York Part 1, and featuring the ever fascinating and many-time Observatory presenter Mitch Horowitz–has just been uploaded is now available for viewing! You can view it above or on The Midnight Archive website.
