Fourth Friday Flix:
SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS
May 22, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
Forget that it's based on the legendary Ancient Roman story of the rape of the Sabine women. Forget that it really seems to be glorifying abduction and recommending kidnapping when traditional courtship methods fall short. Forget even, if you can, the Pontipee brothers startlingly unnatural red hair. Because darn it, this musical works--and if you're not a-grinnin' during the barnraising sequence, then something's deeply wrong. Get yore beautiful hide into this thee-ayter and experience one of the greatest film musicals of all time--in glorious CinemaScope, on 35mm film!

The World’s Greatest Tribute to The World’s Greatest Rock N Roll Band!
For over a decade, Rudy Colombini & The Unauthorized Rolling Stones has been recognized as the premier Rolling Stones tribute band in the world. In 2014, founder and frontman Rudy Colombini expanded the band by adding all-star members from some of the world's biggest acts, plus keyboards, sax, and a dynamite team of backup singers. The result was a quantum leap that has left other Stones tributes in the dust.
Featuring All-Star Band Members from Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Whitesnake, Huey Lewis & The News, Ted Nugent, Levon Helm, Rick Derringer, Jersey Boys, Hair, Coasters, Sting, Sons of Champlin, Ronnie Montrose, Tommy Castro, Al Jarreau,Celine Dion, Joe Cocker, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Sammy Hagar and Kenny Loggins.
Insiders and die hard fans alike call Rudy & The Unauthorized, "better than the real thing." David Patrick, Spectator Magazine photographer for The Rolling Stone's First Twenty Years said it best: "They sounded more like the Rolling Stones than the Rolling Stones do. In fact, The Unauthorized Rolling Stones sang many of Stones' songs better than the Stones!" Experience the phenomenon that is Rudy Colombini & The Unauthorized Rolling Stones. Tickets are $20 in advance (available at Eureka Theater Box Office (Annex ’39 Antiques), Wildberries Marketplace, and The Works), $25 at the door. Available online at Brown Paper Tickets.

Fourth Friday Flix: THIS IS SPINAL TAP
June 26, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
Before BEST IN SHOW, before A MIGHTY WIND and WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, there was the greatest "mockumentary" of them all--the gold standard against which all others are measured, and are found wanting. For sheer quotability, it rivals MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, OFFICE SPACE, GHOSTBUSTERS, CASABLANCA and HAMLET. Professional musicians simultaneously love it, and fear it--Aerosmith's Steven Tyler once said "It hits too close too home." Follow documentarian Marty Di Bergi (Rob Reiner) as he chronicles the long-awaited(?) American tour of middle-aged British rockers Spın̈al Tap, headed by David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), and Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), who perform such powerful rock anthems as "Sex Farm" and "Big Bottom," among many others. Still not convinced? Check out the rating on IMDB--8.0...out of 11.
