THE EXPERIENCE

Join us for a pre-movie group sing-along with Low Bar Chorale! Following that, we’ll screen a film that might be impossible to not sing-along to, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. This cult classic was John Cameron Mitchell’s filmmaking debut (an adaptation of his critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit), and filled with explosive imagination and rock & roll.

ON SCREEN: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

2001. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell. Runtime: 95 minutes. Rated R.

Hedwig, a trans woman born in Communist East Berlin, always dreamed of finding her other half and becoming a big American rock star. When a handsome American GI promises love and liberation, it seems like a dream come true. But there’s a catch—in order to marry and emigrate Hedwig must “leave a little something behind.” Hedwig survives a botched operation that leaves her with an “angry inch” only to be stranded in a Kansas trailer park the very day the Berlin Wall comes down. Undeterred, Hedwig dons immaculate makeup and a Farrah Fawcett wig and forms a rock band—The Angry Inch. While supporting herself with babysitting gigs, she falls for a 16-year-old Jesus freak she renames Tommy Gnosis. Tommy steals her songs and becomes the rock star Hedwig always dreamed she’d be. Refusing to be defeated, she fiercely performs in crumbling theme restaurants seeking recognition, retribution, and reconciliation with her other half.

ON STAGE: Low Bar Chorale

Low Bar ChoraleThe Low Bar Chorale is a singing concert, where the audience is the lead singer. Backed by a live band, they do songs from the 70s up to now: rock, indie, pop, R&B, and the occasional mashup. Throughout the show, they teach the crowd harmonies and background vocals for the songs. Everyone is welcome –  all skill and confidence levels. Sing on, you crazy diamond!
