The Jane Pickens Theater and Event Center announces a new series of films “Classics, Concerts and Cults” that will be known as the Friday After Dark series. Each movie will begin at 9:15pm, and as always our concessions and cash bar will be open. Below are the films in the current lineup with more to come.
Hendrix 70 Live at Woodstock - 1/11
In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's birth, experience Hendrix's unforgettable August 1969 Woodstock concert on the big screen and in surround sound for the first time ever. The concert is preceded by a fascinating “road to Woodstock” documentary, which reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist.
Charlie Is My Darling - 1/25
The first documentary of the iconic band The Rolling Stones, has now been released in an extended and restored version, and is coming to the Jane Pickens. Follow the band as they travel to and perform two concerts in Ireland in 1965, just as “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction,” was becoming a hit. Intermixed with footage are interviews with the band as they talk about fans, fame and their future.
“The film captures some fine moments of performance, some revealing moments of offhanded intimacy, and others of purposeful reflection—and, over-all, it presents an astonishingly clear sense of the grandeur and decadence of Stones-ism.” - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
The Big Lebowski - 2/22
This cult classic comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, and gallons of White Russians - which will be served at our cash bar during this special showing.
“There are few films that genuinely get better with each successive viewing. The Big Lebowski is one of them.” - Michael Nordine, Slant Magazine
The Goonies - 3/1
Come relive this 80’s action-fantasy which follows a group of friends attempting to save their homes from demolition, and in doing so, discover an old Spanish map that leads them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willie, a legendary 17th-century pirate. Full of adventure, suspense, laughter, and nostalgia, The Goonies has garnered a dedicated and passionate following, and is ready to be introduced to a whole new generation of moviegoers.
“... with its universal search for adventure, the film also taps into a broader audience as it “panders” to almost everyone who was young and dreamed.” - Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
