‘March MADness’ on tap at Sisters Movie House

While the country experiences its traditional college basketball March Madness this month, Sisters Movie House is putting its own spin on things with a “March MADness” theme. In this case, the “MAD” stands for “Music – and Adventure.”

Each Tuesday night during the month, the theater will debut a special, one-night-only event film, focusing on outdoor adventure or music. The series kicks off with the “Women’s Adventure Film Tour 2023” featuring footage of extraordinary women across the globe — just ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8. It screens for one night only on Tuesday, March 7, at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are priced at $15 and available at www.sisters or at the theater box office.

“Yes, it’s pretty good timing,” said Drew Kaza, managing partner of quoin media & entertainment LLC, which owns and operates Sisters Movie House. “We couldn’t be more excited to highlight what women are doing all over the planet — in a spirit that will truly resonate with the adventurous residents and visitors to Sisters Country.”

That is just the beginning though. The series continues on Tuesday, March 14, with an extremely rare screening of Carole King’s breakthrough 1973 concert at New York’s Central Park. It’s a movie that languished unseen for 50 years, but is now being given a proper theatrical release. “Carole King: Home Again Live at Central Park” is also priced at $15 with tickets on sale now.

“We expect something close to a sell-out for this one,” said Kaza. “Everyone of a certain age remembers Carole King — and her best-selling album ‘Tapestry’ — with very fond memories. And she is absolutely at her peak in this remastered documentary.”

The series rounds out with another adventure flick on Tuesday, March 21, plus yet one more intriguing music documentary on the last Tuesday of the month, March 28. On March 21, Sisters Movie House will hit another landmark with a first-ever fly-fishing film. The “Fly Fishing Film Tour” lands for one night only at 6:15 p.m.

Concluding the “MADness” is a just-released documentary about ’70s band Blood, Sweat & Tears and their groundbreaking concerts beyond the Iron Curtain. “What the Hell Happened to Blood, Sweat & Tears?” is a fascinating time capsule of music and political intrigue. It will screen for one night only on March 28 at 6:15 p.m.

“It’s a pretty crazy story, involving the Nixon administration, foreign dictators, and the power of music to spread freedom,” said Kaza. “It’s the perfect capper to March MADness for sure.”
