Originally founded in 1993 as Orgone Cinema by Jeff Armstrong, Michael Johnsen and Greg Pierce as a break-even motion picture exhibition group dedicated to a sincere film culture, it presented unique monthly shows of home movies, industrial, educational, experimental, and documentary films, light and sound performances, and visiting film and videomakers at the Silver Eye Center for Photography on the South Side. Orgone is also (and was) a traveling cinema band that screens and performs films at home and nationally. Greg Pierce is the current custodian of this proudly fringe collection.
