Cinema 16 was formerly a popular avant-garde film society in the late 1940s; now it’s the name of artist Molly Surno’s extremely cool film series, which brings together an eclectic mix of musicians to score vintage and contemporary experimental films. Tonight, check out six films (including Andy Warhol’s Salvador Dalí screen test) with music composed by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner and Brian Chase, Oneida’s Shahin Motia, and MV Carbon. This evening’s program is inspired by the Met’s new exhibit “Guitar Heroes.”
