Fri. Sept. 23 @ 7:30pm
Meet the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight, and when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
Tickets: $11.00 ($8.00 Cinema Members)

AN EVENING WITH PATTY LARKIN
Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. She has been praises as “evocative” (Rolling Stone), “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).
Tickets: $30.00 ($27.50 Cinema Members)

THE UNTOLD STORY: BOWIE/RYKODISC/SALEM
(Multimedia Lecture & Musical Tribute)
When David Bowie passed this year, the world lost an incredible artist, but little mention was made of Bowie’s important, but largely forgotten, ties to Salem. Music fans can hear this fascinating story, by way of a multimedia presentation by Bowie producer, Jeff Rougvie, and Boston-based band, Daily Pravda, playing David Bowie’s music.
Tickets: $15.00 ($13.50 Cinema Members)
Mon. Sept. 26 @ 6:30pm
The creatures who live in the Land of Point all have pointy features, except Oblio, whose circular head is unusual. Singled out because of his appearance, Oblio is exiled to the Pointless Forest. In the process, he learns that it doesn’t matter what you look like–it’s who you are on the inside that counts. Narrated by former Beatle Ringo Starr and featuring music by late folk-rocker Harry Nilsson, this animated children’s fable is about one of life’s important lessons. Special early family-friendly show time.
Tickets: $11.00 Adults ($8.00 Kids & Cinema Members)
Tues. Sept. 27 @ 7:30pm
EAT THAT QUESTION: FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS
A subtle, skillful montage constructed solely from historic footage, “Eat That Question” is an energetic celebration of outspoken maestro Frank Zappa. Following the man from clean-shaven, besuited youth, to fearless chief freak, to his relentlessly productive final days before his death at 52, the film seats us right up front from the start; close enough to Zappa to read the flickering emotions in his eyes.
Tickets: $11.00 Adults ($8.00 Cinema Members)
Wed. Sept. 28 @ 7:30pm
AKOUNAK TEGGDALIT TAHA TAZOUGHAI
[aka “The Nigerian ‘Purple Rain’]
(Film & Musical Tribute)
This remake of Prince’s 1984 cult classic “Purple Rain” is the story of a young guitarist in the North of Niger, trying to make it against all odds, and is the first ever Tuareg language fiction film. Its title is a Tuareg phrase that literally translates to “rain the color of blue with a little red in it” (the Tuareg are a semi-nomadic Berber group in North Africa, and their language, also known as Tamashek, has no word for the color purple). Followed by a tribute set by Pop Life, which is comprised of local musicians 3rian King, Dan King, Renée Dupuis, Dennis Monagle, Tony Goddess, and Megan McKenzie.
Tickets: $15.00 ($13.50 Cinema Members)
Thurs. Sept. 29 @ 7:30pm
THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK
(Concert & Film)
The cultural phenomenon that The Beatles’ extensive touring from 1962-66 helped create (known as “Beatlemania”) made for the first time much of the world feel truly unified–bound by aspiration and attitude, rather than divided by race, class, religion or nationality. This is the story of those exceptional touring years. With the superb Beatles ’64 tribute, Studio Two performing a pre-show concert.
Tickets $15.00 ($13.50 Cinema Members)
Fri. Sept. 30 @ 10:00pm
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
(Film & Shadow Cast Performance by The Teseracte Players)
Join Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon and rock star Meat Loaf in the most popular cult classic of all time. The large ensemble fan group The Teseracte Players “shadows” the film, acting along to it and adding their own hilarious running commentary.
Tickets $12.50 ($11.25 Cinema Members)
Tickets for all Fall Into The Rhythm events are available at the box office or online at www.CapeAnnCinema.com.
