James Garner's Tribute to Johnny Cast

James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash celebrates the life and music of the Man in Black with strong conviction and stunning accuracy. Garner and his band faithfully recreate Cash’s biggest hits, such as Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line and Ring of Fire, and incorporate historical accounts and personal anecdotes about America’s most beloved singing storyteller in this not-to-be-missed musical event. The show is a fun, classy and toe-tapping trip down memory lane honoring Johnny Cash’s life and music, and the boom-chicka-boom sound of his signature backing band, the Tennessee Three.

Alis Christmas Gala

A Christmas Gala After the success of the previous shows, Le Cirque World’s Top Performers (Cirque du Soleil and Circo Contemporaneo) join forces once again on a thrilling show, which reaches Milan on the final stops of its international tournée. The show, a non-stop performance lasting two hours, features a meld of aerial acrobatics and feats of agility inspired by a fantasy reinterpretation of Alice in Wonderland, from which the show takes its name. Enchanting 1800-inspired atmospheres and the talent of 24 among tightrope walkers, acrobats, jugglers, musicians and athletes lead the adience into an imaginary itinerary in the world of Alice in Wonderland. The cast also features well-known performers including Yves Decoste, Viktor Klee, Onofrio Colucci and Asia Tromler.

Kalimba-The Music of Earth Wind and Fire Christmas Show

Lead vocalist, Thomas “Chazz” Smith, created Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire in 2011 with the vision of honoring the beloved Earth Wind & Fire hits he and millions of others listened to while growing up. The 10-piece organization includes a full horn and rhythm section to reproduce the infectious grooves created by EWF’s Verdine White and Ralph Johnson. In February the loss of EWF’s founder and musical genius, Maurice White, left the world mourning, but Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire faithfully honors his work by featuring lush treatments of the soaring vocal harmonies that are the hallmark of Earth Wind & Fire’s music and EWF’s late founder, musical genius, Maurice White. Performances authentically replicate the signature high notes of Maurice White’s sidekick, Philip Bailey.

2020 Silent Movie and Pipe Organ Series

JANUARY 24, 2020

Foolish Wives (1922)
There are plenty of silent dramas about social scandal, but few come with Erich von Stroheim’s coy sense of humor. The famous description of the writer/actor/director as “the man you love to hate” is only problematic in that it’s not all that easy to hate the dastardly fellow, even as he uses his charm to seduce a rich, married woman and siphon her money. In Foolish Wives, he plays Count Wladislaw Sergius Karamzin—or at least a con-man using that name—who lives in a swank castle in Monaco with two con-women who are his lovers and/or cousins. As would happen throughout von Stroheim’s career, the film was drastically edited down prior to release—by at least four hours to get it just short of two—but the abridged work still shows his love for mischief and bold flare. (One character is even reading a book entitled Foolish Wives, written by Erich von Stroheim.)

MARCH 27, 2020

The Lodger: A Story of London Fog (1927) Alfred Hitchcock’s films before The Lodger had plenty of his characteristic inventive camerawork and playfulness, but this is the one where he overtly hits the themes that he’d explore throughout his career: suspicion of people close to you, public mania, fear of the police. Telling the story of a sexy-but-dangerous lodger, whom our heroine suspects may be Jack the Ripper, Hitchcock builds upon clues and doubts, while making Ivor Novello’s character increasingly intriguing.

3 BUSTER KEATON SHORTS

  

MAY 15, 2020

short films
The Playhouse (1921)
The sight of nine Buster Keaton’s dancing in sync with each other in this two-reeler may seem like an impressive technical feat for 1921—and it did involve exposing the same roll of film nine times, with the cameraman manually cranking at the same speed each time. But in fact, Georges Méliès pulled off similarly impressive shots more than a decade earlier. What makes The Playhouse special is how thoroughly realized the theater of Busters is—featuring actors, the orchestra pit and the audience—and how it riffs on notions of identity and ego. (“This Keaton fellow seems to be the whole show.”) After Buster wakes from his dream, only to find himself back on set in a clever reveal, the gags continue to draw on the notion of doubles and multiple roles. If that weren’t enough, you get to see Keaton pretend to be a monkey.
Hard Luck (1922)
Sometimes failing at life includes failing at ending your life. That’s the problem Buster Keaton’s character faces in Hard Luck. He hangs himself from weak trees, jumps in front of cars that turn out not to be cars and just plain can’t find a way to put himself out of his misery. Note that the wonderfully absurd finale isn’t included in the Kino blu-ray of Keaton’s shorts, but is on the UK Masters of Cinema release and, oddly, Kino’s own Keaton Plus DVD.
The Boat (1921)
There’s a gag in The Boat in which the hero launches his boat, and it immediately sinks. It seems simple enough, but Buster Keaton actually went through several attempts and engineering adjustments before getting the shot right. If it had sank any other way, it wouldn’t have been funny, he said. That level of commitment to a few seconds of a movie embodies the ethos of the best silent comedy: It may seem on the surface to be pure silliness, but a great deal of thought, strategy and effort went into maximizing the audience’s laughter. The Boat is characteristically loaded with both great humor and great physical comedy—including Keaton trying to stay oriented as his boat is battered around in circles.

JULY 11, 2020

The Navigator (1924)
The Navigator mines an ocean liner for every gag imaginable. Keaton plays a clueless rich young man who finds himself stranded on a giant, adrift ship with the clueless rich young woman who rejected him serving as his only company. These two spoiled upper-class twerps don’t know how to open canned food, let alone operate a ship, and have to improvise in hilarious ways to get things under control. The scene where the two characters each suspect someone else is on the boat, but can’t find anyone else, plays out in classic Keaton fashion: with perfectly timed wide shots that make it more believable that the two keep missing each other. The best moment may be a spooky night when the characters let the creepiness of the boat get the best of them.

Darin Jones and The Last Men Standing

 

Let’s face it. Mainstream country music is a big machine that doesn’t stray far from its formula of committee-driven, focus group developed artists all singing about the same things, in the same way.

Born and raised in the greater Seattle, Washington area, frontman Darin Jones doesn’t pretend to have a stereotypical “Nashville” sound. While he spent time there and also in the Texas country scene, he’s proud of his roots and wants to embrace all that is Northwest country.

Darin’s guitar playing is unlike most you’ll see or hear today. The proud Pacific Northwest Native carries echoes of 70’s southern rock soul, 80’s soaring lead melody, and 90’s spank-twang country chicken’ pickin’. His ‘in-your-face’ tone not only grabs your attention, but demands it. His bellowing full voice with fast natural vibrato adds a rich dynamic to his band. In a saturated industry of artists, Darin stands apart…literally.

After years of varying dynamics in groups and other adventures, only a few men remained thus “Darin Jones & The Last Men Standing” was born.
