KERNEL - The Onyx Theatre Zine

What’s a zine?
Excellent question. We’re trying to figure that out ourselves.

This is an experiment. This is an opportunity to cultivate creativity, beauty, weirdness, wit, and wisdom-- from our staff, and from the wider community-- and showcase it in this technicolor patchwork quilt of collaboration, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

You may find it a little odd that a movie theatre is publishing a zine. But hey, it’s 2021. We say embrace the oddity. We believe that now, more than ever, people crave and deserve community engagement and raw human expression through art and dialogue.

And we want you to come with us on this adventure. Kernel is not an exclusive club. You can submit your own piece to be featured here in this zine. And it could be virtually anything-- the sky’s the limit! (Well, also the 5.5” x 8.5” page size with 0.125” bleed margins. I guess those are the limits).

So send us your drawings, stories, recipes for lucid dreaming, photography, collages, sexy homemade crossword puzzles, poetry, love letters. We want your fantastical, your heartfelt, your everyday and your unique!

This is Kernel.
And we’re so excited to see where this adventure takes us.

Kernel issue #2: Trashablanca is currently in production. Please check back for future themes and submission opportunities.
