Usually the second Saturday of every month the Lyric presents Bad Movie Night! What is it you might ask? Well, it's kind of like Mystery Science Theater 3000 except meant to be watched in a theatre full of people instead of alone in your parent's basement.
Bad Movie Nite! is a fully realized show consisting of a B-Movie with added text commentary and edits with a bad "commercial" break too. The movie is preceded by a brief clip show consisting of snippets from other b-movies, old commercials, weird music videos, how-to video nonsense, and other bizarre clips. Many of the clips are edited and call back to earlier clips in the evening. Each month's feature is a complete mystery. A hint is posted on our Facebook invite and that's about it. Not know what terrible movie you're about to see adds to the excitement of the night! The audience is also encouraged to add their own commentary throughout the show.

Join the Lyric and Trees, Water & People as we present the new eye-opening environmental documentary Tomorrow. Tickets are $15 with $5 from each ticket sold going to Trees, Water & People.
“Tomorrow” has been a phenomenon in France. 1.5 million people rush to the cinemas to the important documentary. It has been shown in communities, schools, at the United Nations, the European Parliament, in board rooms and local governments. It also won “Best Documentary” at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars). A recent European study “Generation What?” found that the major concern of people between 18 and 34 years old is now ecology, rather than employment, a shift attributed largely to the film.
The film tells the story of its co-producers/co-directors, Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurent. Cyril Dion is a French activist, author and journalist, who has led an NGO for seven years. In 2012, he discovered a study that was the most alarming yet: “Approaching a state shift in the Earth biosphere” published in “Nature”. It said that humankind could disappear between 2040 and 2100 if we don’t drastically change our way of life. He shared his concerns with his friend, actress and filmmaker Melanie Laurent, who for several years has been involved in his NGO Colibris and Greenpeace. Cyril has two children, Melanie had just had a baby, and they don’t see how they remain idle faced with this information. With a small film crew, the pair then set off on a road trip around the world in search of solutions.
