Art Film Friday: The Legend of Toilet-Seat Charlie
Please note, this event has expired.
See this delightful documentary about Charlie Deal, the inventor of the Toilet-Seat Guitar and Mill Valley legend. Filmmaker Jeremy Kaller will be on hand for post screening questions.
Charlie Deal stated that he “was sitting on a good idea” in 1965, when he envisioned his unique, semi-famous toilet-seat guitar. Charlie would eventually sell his Deal Guitars around the world, with members of Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead among his customers, while also rocking out with Huey Lewis and John Cipollina of the Quicksilver Messenger Service.
Charlie was the quintessential town character, always spotted riding his old bicycle, with a toilet seat dangling from the handlebars.
This short documentary explores one man’s love of rock ‘n’ roll and his relationship with the community that cherished him.
We will have a Q & A with filmmaker Jeremy Kaller and folks who knew Charlie after the screening.
