Theater offers arts and adventure

Sisters Movie House & Café welcomes the return of its “Autumn Arts & Adventure” series this week.

“We think it’s a great complement to the Folk Festival next month,” said Drew Kaza, managing partner of quoin media & entertainment, which operates Sisters Movie House. “As we did last spring, we are combining elements of two super-popular genres here — featuring great movies on the arts but also outdoor adventure.”

The series of one-night- only special-event programming kicks off on Thursday, September 21, with “Vermeer: The Greatest Exhibition.” It then switches over to the “adventure” side on Thursday, September 28, with “Nothing’s for Free: The History of Freeride Mountain Biking.” Both programs will show at 7 p.m. for one night only. Tickets are priced at $16 for all ages and on sale now at or the theater box office.

For mountain bike fans, “Nothing’s for Free” promises to be a breathtaking look into the sport, even as it tracks the evolution of the sport from casual danger to a global moneymaker. Meanwhile, “Vermeer” showcases the work of the 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer and the most comprehensive exhibition ever of his work, on display last year at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum.

“Our producing partners at Seventh Arts in the U.K. did an amazing job with this film,” said Kaza. “And it turns out it has been their most popular movie ever, in terms of admissions, both in Europe and here in the US. We hope for similar success with the artistic-minded folks in Sisters also.”

The “Autumn Arts & Adventure” series will continue in October with an encore performance of “Carole King: Home Again – Live in Central Park,” coming to the cinema on Thursday, October 5.

“This was one of our most popular events last spring, so we are delighted to bring it back by popular demand,” said Kaza.

The series will continue through the month of October and up until Thanksgiving week in November, with special showings every Thursday night at 7 p.m. Further events in the series will be confirmed and announced in the coming weeks, according to Kaza.
