(PRESENTED BY CAPE ANN MUSEUM)

FREE TICKETS AND STUFF!

Do you want FREE TICKETS to see the legendary ALLOY ORCHESTRA perform their score to the silent classic “The Phantom Of The Opera” this Saturday night? With the purchase of a 10-pack of discount movie tickets, you can get one of the following:

* A ticket to Saturday’s Alloy Orchestra performance of “The Phantom Of The Opera”
* 2 extra movie tickets (bringing the cost of the 12 tickets down to $5.83 instead of the single-ticket $10.00)
* a $10.00 gift card to our friends at LATITUDE 43 across the street (also valid at another half dozen of its sister restaurants)

Additionally, we’ll give you a free DVD copy of the documentary KILOWATT OURS, an entertaining and informative look at saving money on your energy bill while living greener.


Our upgrades are almost complete, and after the new projector is installed, we will have to make a cost-of-living increase in our ticket prices. So ticket prices will never be this low again. And remember, the 10-/12-pack is not only a value that serves as a micro-investment in CACC, but is a hedge against inflation, kinda like the “Forever Stamps” at the Post Office.

IN NO GREAT HURRY:
13 LESSONS IN LIFE
WITH SAUL LEITER

SUN. APR. 27 @ 6:30PM

Click to buy tickets to this event.

Saul Leiter could have been lauded as the great the pioneer of color photography, but was never driven by the lure of success. Instead, he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of beautiful work that is now piled high in his New York apartment. An intimate and personal film, “In No Great Hurry” follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing an apartment full of memories, becoming world famous in his 80s and fending off a pesky filmmaker.

Read up on Leiter’s 1958 visit to Gloucester’s Lanesville neighborhood.

For The Love Of Dolby

Thomas Dolby, whose name you might have heard, or seen scrawled like graffiti on a blog about Moogs or something like that, is to pop music what Voyager 2 is to space exploration. And no, “She Blinded Me With Science” is not his only hit song, although you have probably seen the video all those years ago on MTV. Perhaps you bought “The Golden Age of Wireless” and came to appreciate this long-legged kind of glamorous Brit-pop for what lies beneath those strange album covers and glints of engineering on the bespectacled face of this heroic and legendary proto-geek. I didn’t. Instead, I huddled while imprisoned in the grey halls of a New England prep school, lonely, angry, and bewildered by joules of hormones, beneath my Walkman headphones listening to “Cloudburst at Shingle Street” and thinking of seducing the girls in my car pool if only they would talk to me. And I heard things I could only hope to say to myself in the submarine of scrubbing desks or sweeping floors during the summer break:

when I was small
I was in love
in love with everything
and now there’s only you

And now there’s only you, Thomas: the last bottle of New Wave Lafite ’82, a bouquet of Art Deco and stratospheric synths emboldened by persistence of vision and impeccable taste, whose sadness and observation, manic moments, and blind science create haunting atmospheres out of baryonic matter.

Click to get tickets while you still can.

Having taken off two decades to facilitate a queue of non-pop accomplishment before returning with “A Map of the Floating City,” Thomas Dolby behind his insane steampunk facade offers something between friendly and spooky, reaching out with ordinary metaphor, in this case “Flying North” with a lo-fi digital camera, to catch the wonder betwixt the emptiness of “The Invisible Lighthouse.” He seems fine. More than that. Relaxed. Unrushed. The same man who referred to himself in the third person just a wee bit on “Weightless” to let us in on the frustration of his love life is now playing live the electronic sounds and lost melodies for which he continues to be loved.

I’ve waited thirty years.

You see, Thomas Dolby: The Idea is ever-present to his fans, who hover over him in chat rooms asking Who Is Caroline 452? Or, is that really the riff from “The Six Million Dollar Man” embedded in “One of Our Submarines”? (Yes, it is!) And Thomas Dolby is a good idea, thick in Britannia like on his album covers, whether he’s lost in the sauce expatriated in Los Angeles or sampling the doppler of church bell on “Cruel.” Between the electronic drum sounds of “Europa and the Pirate Twins,” he mentions his preteen crush to “The Twelfth of Never,” which I take as Nina Simone’s unforgettable 1963 version. And once you are old, and hear Nina sing it, and think about Thomas referencing this all those years ago, you get trapped in his mythology.

Then into “The Flat Earth” you go, with the maturity at hand to know why “Screen Kiss” makes you hurt, why it leaves you rushed and needy to have somebody love you before it’s too late. And if you’re like me, you grow up and move out West and behold the haze above old Hollywood, where deer look down from the hills, and it’s three o’ clock in the morning. And perhaps, if you’re lucky, you’ll synch a near perfect seduction to his cover of “I Scare Myself,” slow-dancing to the handsome Joe Jacksonesque piano blurs and so unbelievably lost in whatever that is.

Mr. Dolby, may I say what a pleasure it’s been to live inside your music for thirty years. I’ll see you November 1 for “The Invisible Lighthouse.” And most properly, sir, Adieu.•••

Thomas Dolby will present his film “The Invisible Lighthouse” with live music, narration, and foley at the Cape Ann Community Cinema on Friday, November 1st at 7:30pm to kick off the 6th annual Cape Ann Film Festival.
