Hey Music Film Lovers,

This week, we’re screening Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, a feature-length documentary film about the dismal commercial failure, subsequent massive critical acclaim, and enduring legacy of pop music’s greatest cult phenomenon, Big Star. This film is a unique portrait of an incredibly talented group of musicians who crafted three albums now considered pop masterpieces (all of which charted on Rolling Stone’s top 500 albums of all time). Purchase advance tickets now.

Then, in August, back by popular demand, it’s R. Kelly’s Trapped In The Closet! We’re screening the classic hip hopera on at midnight on August 23rd & 24th. Dress up as your favorite character and sing along with every crazy plot twist. It’s the perfect way to end your summer. Purchase advance tickets now.

Monday, July 15th – Sunday, July 21st, 2013
