Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock 'N Roll

Wednesday, May 29, 7:30 pm

“Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n Roll” tells the story of the long troubled town of Asbury Park, and how the power of music can unite a divided community. A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight. A town literally divided by a set of railroad tracks, the riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene, but from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound.

“Asbury Park” returns Asbury sons Steven Van Zandt, Southside Johnny Lyon and Bruce Springsteen to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start, featuring never before seen interviews and performances. Shuttered for four and a half decades, the Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the Club which united both sides of the tracks in Asbury and acted as a crucible for young talent. Now, as Asbury Park enjoys its long awaited renaissance, it is music which has brought it back from the dead.

This major theatrical event will also include a bonus feature of never before seen footage, as Van Zandt, Southside Johnny, and Springsteen play a now legendary concert to a sold out Paramount Theater and trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury, a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.

The Big Lebowski Turns 21!

DudeStock 2019

Saturday, Jun 22, 7:00 pm

Our 9th annual DudeStock this year celebrates the 21st Anniversary of the greatest film ever made! At DudeStock we raise our Caucasians to all things related to the 1998 cult favorite. Fans of the film (aka "Achievers") come from far and wide to drink White Russians while partaking in the film, listening to Creedence and partying with an array of Dudes, Walters, Maudes and (hopefully) Jesus' to one of cinemas greatest achievements. Prizes will be awarded for best costume in several catergories, including a chance to win a comfy couch seat in the theatre for the show! Arrive early (doors at 7pm, film at 8pm) for Big Screen Bowling.

The plot of this Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians. Jeff `The Dude' Leboswki is mistaken for Jeffrey Lebowski, who is The Big Lebowski. Which explains why he's roughed up and has his precious rug peed on. In search of recompense, The Dude tracks down his namesake, who offers him a job. His wife has been kidnapped and he needs a reliable bagman. Aided and hindered by his pals Walter Sobchak, a Vietnam vet, and Donny, master of stupidity. The soundtrack includes Bob Dylan, Yma Sumac, Moondog, Captain Beefheart, The Sons of the Pioneers and Creedence!

Directed by: Joel and Ethan Coen

Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, David Huddleston, Peter Stormare, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Flea, Sam Elliott, Tara Reid, John Turturro, David Thewlis, Ben Gazzara, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Aimee Mann.

This film is a 21+ event. Sarsaparilla will be available if you choose not to imbibe.

Participation bags, full of cool what-have-yous, will be available at the door or as an add-on to your order for $10.

PNWild presents the premiere of

Seeing It Through

Saturday, Jun 29, 7:30 pm

This is a film based around a lived mantra for PNWild as a whole. We charge into the mountains with a mindset to not be afraid of what is to come, to push past the boundaries of comfortability, and to not stop until what we set out for is accomplished. That is Seeing It Through.

This project materialized early in 2018, there were a few different ideas thrown around, but eventually we landed on a defined idea: to set out into the high country, and harvest four beautiful mule deer. There was no working title for the film leading into the hunt as we wanted the title and feel of the film to be organically grown. As we progressed through the hunt “Seeing It Through” became a slogan that we were constantly saying to one another and ourselves.

“Why are we here?” “To see it through.”

Small Island

Sunday, Jun 30, 1:00 pm

adapted by Helen Edmundson, based on the novel by Andrea Levy
Captured live on stage at the National Theatre

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.

The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story. The timing is even more poignant as Andrea Levy sadly passed away this year, on 14 February 2019.

The Lincoln Theatre presents

Sonny Landreth

on Friday, August 23, 2019 - 8:00pm

After a dozen acclaimed albums, virtuoso slide guitarist and bandleader Sonny Landreth found himself at an artistic crossroads. He wanted to finally create the full-length acoustic collection his fans had long requested. But he was also itching to capture the sound of his stalwart electric trio augmented by a couple of his favorite collaborators. And the time was certainly right for an elastic, career-spanning double-live album.

So Landreth and his longtime friends decided to do it all. ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ is a 16-song opus that covers more musical ground than any single album ever could, as the singer and songwriter’s work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full-band acoustic and electric bottleneck lightning.

Landreth has collaborated with the very top names in guitar over the years: Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Eric Johnson, Derek Trucks – the list goes on. The noted slideman cut his musical teeth in The Red Hot Louisiana Band of zydeco king Clifton Chenier, and Landreth has since recorded and toured with artists ranging from John Mayall to John Hiatt. ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ adds another major chapter to his tale, as new vocal and instrumental colors emerge.

Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

September 10 at 7:30pm

On Tuesday September 10th, the wait will be over…The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, will be revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre in London, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

‘I am delighted that the launch of The Testaments will take place not only in London on 10th September, but also by live-streaming to over 1000 cinemas around the world. I can’t be in all the places at once in my analogue body, but I look forward to being with so many readers via the big screen.’ Margaret Atwood

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

Women’s rights, female empowerment and resistance are at the core of Atwood’s story and the events are presented in partnership with Equality Now.

Village Books will be at the Lincoln this evening so you can purchase a copy of The Testaments on the day of its release. It will also be available to pre-order with your ticket order for a discounted price.

One Man, Two Guvnors

Sunday, Sep 29, 1:00 pm

by Richard Bean
based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Los Lobos

45th Anninversary Tour

Los Lobos is embarking on their tour celebrating 45 years of high quality American music - thank you to all of our fans who have supported us and continue to turn out! These shows feature an acoustic set followed by an electric set that covers music from the last 5 decades.

“We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos.

Back in 2003, when Los Lobos was celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their humble beginnings as a garage band in East L.A., Rolling Stone summed up their distinctive, diverse, freewheeling fusion of rock, blues, soul and Mexican folk music: “This is what happens when five guys create a magical sound, then stick together…to see how far it can take them.” Originally called Los Lobos del Este (de Los Angeles), a play on a popular norteno band called Los Lobos del Norte, the group originally came together from three separate units. Lead vocalist/guitarist Hidalgo, whose arsenal includes accordion, percussion, bass, keyboards, melodic, drums, violin and banjo, met Perez at Garfield High in East LA and started a garage band. Rosas, who had his own group, and Lozano launched a power trio. “But we all hung out because we were friends and making music was just the natural progression of things,” says Perez, the band’s drummer. “Like if you hang around a barbershop long enough, you’re going to get a haircut.”

Perez, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, the global success of “La Bamba” and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.
