A Big Announcement!!! Rare Authorized Screening! The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights!!! Sunday, January 8th 2012! Schlafly Bottleworks Doors open at 7, screening at 8 PM

I am very proud to announce this film as the kick off to our 2012 Lineup of Culture Shock- A Film Series!

What a great way to start the year... on a cold, cold night!

For those of you who are White Stripes fans, you will appreciate the raw vibe of this outstanding rock-umentary as it follows the travels of the band during their 2007 tour of Canada to promote what was ultimately their last recorded album, Icky Thump.

Woven through some electrifying concert footage are rare, behind the scenes dialogues that give a glimpse of the dynamics of two people often seen, but not heard outside of performing.

In addition to scheduled tour dates, Jack & Meg shared their time and talent with the locals as they explored the Provinces of the Great White North. Playing random, free sideshows for audiences far removed from their typical listener base, they captured some great exchanges with all ages. In basic red, black and Jack White fashion this film has it all: classic cars, retro roadies and culture.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see two world class artists at work on a non stop rock & roots adventure tour. Especially since you won't be seeing them tour anytime soon.

You can however, get the skinny and all the goods by going to Third Man Records, either in person in Nashville, TN or by cybertravel at www dot third man records dot com.

Screening Sunday December 4th @ 8PM

(Hal Ashby, 1971 , 91 min.)
Ruth Gordon, Bud Cort, Vivian Pickles

A vintage work of art here! The fact that this movie stars Vivian Pickles and has a Jag hearse conversion is enough to go see it.

Otherwise it's a bonafide December romance! A hilariously dark comedy revolving around the lives of a misbegotten teen and the woman he loves...who could also be his grandmom!

The self-destructive and needy wealthy teenager Harold is obsessed by death and spends his leisure time attending funerals, watching the demolishing of buildings, visiting junkyards, simulating suicides trying to get attention from his indifferent, snobbish and egocentric mother, and having sessions with his psychologist. When Harold meets the anarchist seventy-nine-year-old Maude at a funeral, they become friends and the old lady discloses other perspectives of the cycle of life for him. Meanwhile, his mother enlists him in a dating service and tries to force Harold to join the army. On the day of Maude's eightieth birthday, Harold proposes to her but he finds the truth about life at the end of hers.

See ya there!
