Secret Cinema

This will be the second screening at The Living Room at 35 East, in the heart of downtown Ardmore. Singer-songwriter Laura Mann recently opened this intimate space to provide a comfortable setting for the enjoyment of live music, poetry, comedy and now, films.

The Music Box (1932, Dir: James Parrott) - The most famous, and arguably funniest and best short comedy of Laurel and Hardy is built around the simplest premise: Stan and Ollie must move a piano up a large set of stairs. Director Parrott was the younger brother of another comedy star at the Hal Roach studio, Charlie Chase.
Glass (1959, Dir: Bert Haanstra) - This wordless look at glassmaking in Holland was perfectly edited and synchronized to a lively jazz score, and resulted in a startling new (and oft-imitated) style of documentary film.
The Golden Fish (1959, Dir: Edmond Séchan) - Jacques Cousteau produced this charming little film, about a boy who wins a goldfish at a carnival, and the drama that develops when he leaves his new pet alone with a cat. Besides an Oscar, THE GOLDEN FISH also won the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
Why Man Creates (1968, Dir: Saul Bass) - This unusual, multi-dimensional film was made by Saul Bass, the graphic designer best known for his highly-original title sequences for feature films by Otto Preminger and Alfred Hitchcock. In a series of segments employing animation, graphics and live-action, the film earnestly (and sometimes whimsically) explores the age-old riddle of the title.
Plus The Critic (1963), Happy Anniversary (1962), and more!

Super UnLedded

Buy Tickets

As a lifelong Zep fan, guitarist Paul Franceschini always wanted to create a project that is a tribute to the greatest and most influential rock band ever. While he always performed some their music through the years, he never dedicated an entire show to just Zeppelin. In discussing a future project with a vocalist friend, inspiration struck: create an all acoustic Led Zeppelin tribute band that performs all of their acoustic tracks along with acoustic versions of their electric tunes and voilà, Super UnLedded was born!

Thursday ~ September 6th, 8:00 pm

Joe Jack Talcom (from the Dead Milkmen)

Buy Tickets

Joseph Genaro (Joe Jack Talcum) founded The Dead Milkmen in 1980, initially establishing the group as a bedroom-based home-recording project with a mythological back-story prior to their evolution into a traditional four-piece band by the summer of 1983 based in the city of Philadelphia. The members of the group regularly employed pseudonyms, and Genaro most frequently called himself "Joe Jack Talcum" (stemming from the character of Jack Talcum that Genaro had imagined as the leader of the band in their mythology) in the context of the group, although he also used the pseudonyms "Butterfly Fairweather" and "Jasper Thread" on certain records.

Friday ~ September 7th, 8:00 pm
