The Works presents
August 28, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
If you Google "greatest concert movies of all time," this Talking Heads performance film consistently ranks in the top three, and is more often than not at the very top of that list. Directed by the great Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Swimming to Cambodia), Talking Heads are backed up by funk greats Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry, and Ednah Holt, bringing an infectious vitality to the performance. From the opening number Psycho Killer--just David Byrne on a bare stage with an acoustic guitar and a cassette player--to the frenetic, joyful Crosseyed and Painless that concludes the show, STOP MAKING SENSE builds in complexity and energy, until remaining in your seat simply becomes impossible. Not a Talking Heads fan? You will be.

1984 | 88 min. | Admission $5.00

Sanford's Salon presents

September 25, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

Bernadette (Terence Stamp), Felicia (Guy Pearce) and Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) are three fabulous drag performers tired of the dangers posed by urban life in Sydney. When an offer comes up for a four-week cabaret engagement in rural Alice Springs, the three friends buy an old school bus, which they name “Priscilla.” Packing up their wigs, feathers and sequined what-not’s, they head out for the adventure of their lives with the music of their idols (including Shirley Bassey, Charlene, Gloria Gaynor, and of course, ABBA) pouring from the stereo. Along the way, they confront homophobia, charm narrow-minded yahoos and dazzle everyone with their lavish costumes and over-the-top performances. A flamboyant comedy guaranteed to change the way you think, the way you feel, and most importantly… the way you dress. And possibly how you think about ping-pong balls.

1994 | 104 min. | Rated: R | Admission $5.00
