Arts and adventure at movie house
Last updated 10/10/2023 at 11:22am
The popular special event series known as "Autumn Arts & Adventure" continues through October at Sisters Movie House & Café. The most popular live performing act on the planet, Taylor Swift, also makes an appearance - in her first-ever, official concert movie, from Friday, October 13.
"The Taylor Swift movie is not part of our special series," explained Drew Kaza, managing partner of quoin media & entertainment, which operates Sisters Movie House. "But obviously it's a pretty special event in its own right."
While the arts and adventure continue on Thursday, October 12, with a look at the iconoclastic author Thomas Wolfe in "Radical Wolfe," the "Swifties" can rejoice in the premiere showing of her concert movie starting Friday, October 13 at 6 p.m. That date was chosen by Swift herself (it is her lucky number) and the pricing for the event is also reflective of the singer's wishes/superstitions. Tickets are on sale now, priced at $19.89 for adults and $13.13 for students of all ages. 1989 happened to be Swift's birth year and also the name of one of her most popular albums.
"The Taylor Swift movie starts on Friday, but we will be playing it here on consecutive weekends through the rest of October," said Kaza. "While tickets are going fast, we should have plenty for everybody, given we will have at least five showtimes every weekend. And of course, the price for admission is just a fraction of what her concerts would cost you."
Unlike the Swift movie, the programs in the Arts & Adventure series are one-time only and will screen each Thursday night in October at 7 p.m. with tickets priced at $16 for all ages.
Next up in the series after the Wolfe documentary is a spectacular ski film, "The Land of Giants," where the outstanding cinematography makes the mountains the star. It shows in Sisters on Thursday, October 19. The October programs conclude with an encore showing of "Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes" on Thursday October 26, also at 7 p.m.
"We're pretty proud of the diversity of this series," said Kaza. "Last month we featured an art exhibition from Holland and a history of mountain biking. Now we have jazz, a mind-blowing ski film, and a deep dive into the literary arts with Tom Wolfe. There's definitely something for everyone in this series."
The "Autumn Arts & Adventure" series will continue in November, and Kaza promises more details to come in the weeks ahead, including a return to seven days a week opening hours before the end of the month.
"The Hollywood strikes are over and we couldn't be more excited," added Kaza. "We have a very full lineup ahead of us."
