Seattle YouTube festival, with drinks

YouTube may be having a midlife crisis, but it’s still fun.

Especially when you play some of its wacky videos on a big movie theater screen, snicker at the pop culture analysis and keep the refreshments flowing.

That’s what the Northwest Film Forum is doing Saturday night, when it converts its Capitol Hill cinema into a giant computer for “WeTube, an evening of Internet video writ large.”

From the announcement:

We bring you faux-academic musings on the phenomenon, a selection of outrageous YouTube clips, and live interactive games in which the audience will pick key words for live video searches. Get ready for laughs, drinks, head scratching, and VERY big pixels!

The forum ought to make this a regular event. It could be the Bubble 2.0 version of Mike Daisey’s Amazon.com monologue.
