Join us for a very special one-off screening of the new Joan Jett documentary - BAD REPUTATION! This theatrical version of the film will come packaged with an exclusive, brand new solo performance by Joan made specifically for this screenings with the footage following the feature.

Joan Jett is so much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” It’s true, she became mega-famous from the number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. But that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshit style. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.

Playing in a manner that can be conservatively described as larger than life, Kurt Russell plays a macho truck driver who agrees to go to the San Francisco airport and pick up his friend's (Dennis Dun) fiancee (Suzee Pai, freshly arrived from China. Suddenly, a gang of Chinatown toughs kidnap the girl right before Russell's eyes. After a wild chase sequence, Russell discovers that the girl has been abducted by a genuine, bonafide sorceror (James Hong), the ghost of a 3000 year old warlord. And that's just for starters.

Join us for a special OUTDOOR screening of Blackklansmans on Friday, September 7th at 7:40! Bring an FM Radio. If you don't have one, we have them available to rent!

It’s the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community. He bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth contacts the group and soon finds himself invited into its inner circle. He even cultivates a relationship with the Klan’s Grand Wizard, David Duke (Topher Grace), who praises Ron’s commitment to the advancement of White America. With the undercover investigation growing ever more complex, Stallworth’s colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of hate group, gaining insider’s knowledge of a deadly plot. Together, Stallworth and Zimmerman team up to take down the organization whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman offers an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Canyon Concert Ballet’s 2nd Annual Ballet & Beer is a celebration of what CCB does best: Ballet, and of what Fort Collins does best: Beer.

In addition to work set by Mrs. Laumann, local choreographers Judy Bejarano (IMPACT Dance), and Matthew and Madeline Harvey (CSU) will contribute pieces. The evening will be rounded out by a special presentation of excerpts from Carl Orff’s hedonistic Carmina Burana sung by Larimer Chorale singers and danced by the CCB company.

Dante's Inferno w/ Live Accompaniment

Dante's Inferno w/ Live Accompaniment

NR

Join The Lyric as we welcome acclaimed musician Maurizio Gaurini of the band Goblin as he performs the score of Dante's Inferno LIVE! Get earlybird tickets for $22 until October 1st, when they go up to $27.

DANTE’S INFERNO (1911) was the first-ever feature-length film produced in Italy. A surreal and still-shocking adaptation of the most infamous section of Dante’s The Divine Comedy, the film follows Virgil leading Dante through the nine circles of Hell as a framing device for a series of spectacular scenes, striking and unusual visual effects, astounding sets, and a huge cast of extras (often naked or barely clothed). The imagery is suitably Bosch-like in its grotesquerie. Fans of HAXAN: WITCHCRAFT THROUGH THE AGES (1922) will find lots to appreciate. DANTE’S INFERNO makes it clear that Italy was leading the cinematic world in bizarre and horrific imagery long before the days of the giallo.

Keyboardist Maurizio Gaurini joined Goblin in 1975 and has been in various line-ups of the band ever since, contributing to numerous classic soundtracks including SUSPIRIA, BUIO OMEGA, and CONTAMINATION. Maurizio was vital to the rebirth of Goblin in the 2000s, including non-soundtrack Goblin releases such as 2006’s Back To The Goblin and 2015’s excellent Four of a Kind. He has performed with an extensive list of musicians and contributed to many other soundtrack recordings, including Fabio Frizzi’s scores for ZOMBIE and THE BEYOND. Maurizio released his first solo album Creatures From A Drawer in 2013 and his score to Anthony D. P. Mann’s THE YELLOW SIGN was recently released on Cadabra Records. When not on tour with Goblin, he performs with his live project the Maurizio Guarini Circle. His solo score to DANTE’S INFERNO was first performed in the framework of the 2nd ISCAD at the University of Toronto in April 2016.

DARK MONEY, a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, DARK MONEY uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold.

"This feature passes the Bechdel Test with flying colors" -The Hollywood Reporter

"Politics and sensuality make for intriguing bedfellows in "Foreign Body," Raja Amari's accomplished survival tale about an undocumented young Tunisian woman finding her identity in France." - Los Angeles Times

In the turbulent aftermath of Tunisia’s Jasmine revolution, young Samia (Sarra Hannachi) is hungry for independence and flees her homeland. She braves hostile seas in the crossing to France, but once there she finds that her struggles have only just begun. With no friends, no family, and — most crucially — no immigration papers, Samia has to figure out how to make a life and a living in a foreign land.

She first finds refuge at an apartment with Imed (Salim Kechiouche, Blue is the Warmest Color), and his roommates. Imed is a friend of her incarcerated, Jihadist brother. Sensing that her arrangements are less than ideal, Samia finds a job with a wealthy French widow, Mrs. Bertaud (the inimitable Hiam Abbass, (Insyriated, Lemon Tree), for whom she cleans and cooks in exchange for shelter and a French identity. Originally romantically interested in Imed, Samia’s presence in Mrs. Bertaud 's upper middle-class household triggers a shift in dynamics, and soon Samia is enmeshed in a web of sexual tension between herself, Imed and Mrs. Bertaud.

FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.

Tickets are generally $10 General Admission and $8 for Students and Seniors, but those prices may vary depending on the movie.

In this innovative and moving project, Director Rob Tregenza and screenwriter Kirk Kjeldsen have adapted the poetry of the Norwegian writer Tarjei Vesaas (1897-1970) to the screen. Andreas Lust (Revanche) plays Carsten Neuer, a grieving husband whose wife had been translating Vesaas' poems into Chinese before her death. Neuer travels to Telemark, Vesaas' home turf, partly in the hopes of finding a fitting resting place, and partly in an attempt to come to terms with his grief. Through its subtle treatment of the twists and turns of individual loss, Gavagai stands as both a remarkable homage to an important figure in Scandinavian literature and a humor-tinged journey into the underworld of grief.

The music film features a different visual treatment for every song, and follows John and Yoko during the recording sessions for the Imagine album in both the UK and New York, as they co-produced the record with Phil Spector. The 2018 re-released Imagine movie has been restored frame-by-frame, from the original reels with the audio remix by triple GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer, Paul Hicks. It is accompanied by 15 minutes of never-before-seen extras including studio footage of John and his band (including George Harrison, Nicky Hopkins from the Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes and Klaus Voormann) performing "How Do You Sleep?" and "Oh My Love" in a specially created Dolby Atmos surround sound "raw studio" mix that would put you in the center of the recording studio while the band play live.

PG13Rated PG-13 for intense science fiction terror

Steven Spielberg's phenomenally successful sci-fi adventure thriller is graced by state-of-the-art special effects from the team of Stan Winston, Phil Tippett and Michael Lantieri from George Lucas's Industrial Light & Magic. The film follows two dinosaur experts -- Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sattler Laura Dern) -- as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaur Rex. Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren (Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello), they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee (Wayne Knight) sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control. Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic man-eating beasts.

Bridges, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weaves evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling the end of nature, into a story that helps us understand our place among the species of Earth’s household. The film upends our previous conceived notions, and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, the unintended consequences, and how our fundamental nature influences our future as Humankind.

Join us September 23rd for this special screening for Art House Theatre Day! Each ticket comes with a FREE small popcorn!

From John Landis (director of Animal House, Kentucky Fried Movie, An American Werewolf In London and many more) comes an uproarious pastiche of monster movies packed to the gills with irreverent, silly humor. Schlock is the outrageous missing link between the creature features of yesteryear and its creator's celebrated career.

Carnage! Terror! Banana skins! A mighty prehistoric ape emerges from hiding to embark on a full-scale rampage across a quiet SoCal suburb. The police are baffled. The army is powerless. The body count is rising...but when Schlock encounters a kindly blind woman (Eliza Garrett, Animal House) who sees beyond his grotesque visage, the homicidal simian is presented with a chance at redemption...

Special Q&A Screening with Director Eli Adler and Jack Adler!

They survived the horrors of the Holocaust and came to America to put the past behind. For decades they kept their awful memories secret, even from their children. But their silence ended when a band of neo-Nazi thugs threatened to march in their quiet village of Skokie, Illinois "because that is where the Jews are."

Surviving Skokie is an intensely personal documentary by former Skokie resident Eli Adler about the provocative events of the 1970s, their aftermath, his family's horrific experience of the Shoah, and a journey with his father to confront long-suppressed memories.

G

Join us September 23rd for this special screening for Art House Theatre Day! Each ticket comes with a FREE small popcorn!

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family and the anxieties of modern life.

The Lyric is dishing up a hefty helping of classic horror films this October! Come watch them all with us with you can because they each play for just one week!

The story begins as an innocuous romantic triangle involving wealthy, spoiled Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren), handsome Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), and schoolteacher Annie Hayworth (Suzanne Pleshette). The human story begins in a San Francisco pet shop and culminates at the home of Mitch's mother (Jessica Tandy) at Bodega Bay, where the characters' sense of security is slowly eroded by the curious behavior of the birds in the area. At first, it's no more than a sea gull swooping down and pecking at Melanie's head. Things take a truly ugly turn when hundreds of birds converge on a children's party. There is never an explanation as to why the birds have run amok, but once the onslaught begins, there's virtually no letup.

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's novel of the same name; 'The Bookshop' is set in 1959, Florence Green (Emily Mortimer), a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop - the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokov's scandalizing "Lolita" and Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451", she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries. Her activities bring her a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy) who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson...

The Lyric is dishing up a hefty helping of classic horror films this October! Come watch them all with us with you can because they each play for just one week!

Novelist William Peter Blatty based his best-seller on the last known Catholic-sanctioned exorcism in the United States. Blatty transformed the little boy in the 1949 incident into a little girl named Regan, played by 14-year-old Linda Blair. Suddenly prone to fits and bizarre behavior, Regan proves quite a handful for her actress-mother, Chris MacNeil (played by Ellen Burstyn, although Blatty reportedly based the character on his next-door neighbor Shirley MacLaine). When Regan gets completely out of hand, Chris calls in young priest Father Karras (Jason Miller), who becomes convinced that the girl is possessed by the Devil and that they must call in an exorcist: namely, Father Merrin (Max von Sydow). His foe proves to be no run-of-the-mill demon, and both the priest and the girl suffer numerous horrors during their struggles. The Exorcist received a theatrical rerelease in 2000, in a special edition that added 11 minutes of footage trimmed from the film's original release and digitally enhanced Chris Newman's Oscar-winning sound work

The Long Shadow is a disturbing story about the lingering human cost of ignorance, intolerance and inaction in the U.S., casting a long shadow over our national identity and imperfect democracy.

But after she's caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens "struggling with same-sex attraction." At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious "de-gaying" methods, and earnest Christian rock songs-but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she's able to find her place among fellow outcasts.

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" -- or, rather, a homicidal boy in Stanley Kubrick's eerie 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel. With wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow, frustrated writer Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the winter caretaker at the opulently ominous, mountain-locked Overlook Hotel so that he can write in peace. Before the Overlook is vacated for the Torrances, the manager (Barry Nelson) informs Jack that a previous caretaker went crazy and slaughtered his family; Jack thinks it's no problem, but Danny's "shining" hints otherwise. Settling into their routine, Danny cruises through the empty corridors on his Big Wheel and plays in the topiary maze with Wendy, while Jack sets up shop in a cavernous lounge with strict orders not to be disturbed. Danny's alter ego, "Tony," however, starts warning of "redrum" as Danny is plagued by more blood-soaked visions of the past, and a blocked Jack starts visiting the hotel bar for a few visions of his own. Frightened by her husband's behavior and Danny's visit to the forbidding Room 237, Wendy soon discovers what Jack has really been doing in his study all day, and what the hotel has done to Jack.

Just as Hitchcock's Psycho was based on the life of deeply disturbed farmer Ed Gein, so is this little story of depravity and dementia. When a sister and her brother take a group of friends to visit the farmhouse of their deceased grandfather, they discover that just next door lives a whole family of repugnant psycho killers. Most noteworthy is "Leatherface" who is the bloke who wields the power saw and has a penchant for human flesh. Though the film did not enjoy immediate success at the box office, it has since gathered a hefty cult following. Directed by Tobe Hooper, Texas Chainsaw Massacre is considered by many to be groundbreaking work in the genre of horror.

A homeless drifter discovers a reason for the ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor: a conspiracy by non-human aliens who have infiltrated American society in the guise of wealthy yuppies. With the help of special sunglasses that reveal the aliens' true faces and their subliminal messages ("marry and reproduce," "submit to authority"), our hero tries to stop the invasion. This satire of Reaganomics and the "greed is good" era also has one of the funniest (and longest) fight scenes in American cinema.
