[INTRODUCTION] Meet Black Cat Cinema

A quick intro to Black Cat Cinema

Based here in Lisbon, Black Cat is all about creating beautiful and alternative experiences of classic, cult, and creative films.

And my name’s Dan @Dan_E. I’ve been running open-air/jungle cinema since since 2014, and I'm passionate about re-imagining the film-going experience. BCC is the latest incarnation, which I founded in August 2021.

I was first introduced to NEAR through @vandal @tabear @StevenR @squattingPigeon, and mintbase by @marianeu. Now it feels like time to say hi to the wider community!


We’ve just finished up the first run of 30 open-air shows, hosted at Arroz Estúdios. The reception from the folks here in Lisbon has been awesome. 😊 Thank you to all who have been a part of it!


Going into 2022, the goal is to make alternative cinema experiences a fixture in the Lisbon calendar. There is a huge amount of potential to integrate the film shows with more of what the creative scene has to offer, whether it be art, music, or something else that we dream up!

NEAR integration goals

1) To recruit and work with new creators, collaborators, and artists through the NEAR payments ecosystem and this online platform.

2) Apply for support from the DAOs to create events, raise usage and awareness of NEAR, and incentivise collaborators to join the space.

3)Ticketing and payments. The option to sidestep traditional FIAT payment and ticketing systems in favour of NFTs will be a huge move forward.

Next up is posting a bounty proposal for an art competition, where artists can let their imaginations run riot and re-create classic film posters. There will be a mintbase store following soon after, and the winning entries will be minted into NFTs 😊

Thanks all. It’s good to be here!
