08.08.2013 6:00 pm

Thursday, August 8
Outdoor Pre-Party: 6 PM

Film Screening: 8 PM

Change to pre-party: All ticket holders are invited to the pre-party on the lawns of the Botanical Building from 6-8 p.m. for complimentary cocktails, live music, and picnic-style lounging.

Take a Strange and Beautiful Trip Inside a '70s Love Cult

The Source Family was a radical experiment in '70s utopian living. Their iconic style, health food restaurant, rock band, and beautiful women made them the darlings of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip—but their unconventional behavior ultimately led to their dramatic demise. THE SOURCE FAMILY (2013, 98 minutes) provides an intimate view of the ultimate California commune through their own archival photos, home movies, and contemporary interviews.

Before the film, join your Aquarian tribe on the lawns of the San Diego Botanical Building for a mind-blowing outdoor pre-party, with libations from Alchemy and live music.

After the screening, stay for a Q & A with director Jodi Wille and Alicia Previn, an original member of the Source Family.


General Admission: $10 Non-Member / $8 MOPA Member

Includes access to outdoor pre-party, 2 complimentary drinks, film screening and Q&A. 

NOTE: There is no dinner package option anymore.

*Suggested attire: 70’s chic/bohemian/white

**Check in will take place on the lawns of the Botanical Building (next to Lily Pond)
