The Zen of Bennett

Thur 9/4: 7:30pm
In his half-century-plus in the biz, 86-year-old crooner Tony Bennett has, by his own description, seen it all. When he entered the recording industry in 1950, it was still strictly a monaural pursuit. Over the years, he watched it switch over to stereo sound, then quadraphonic, then digital.
In addition to amassing an enormous amount of institutional knowledge in those years — not to mention an enormous following — the old master also has amassed a great deal of wisdom. That wisdom covers music, yes, but it also covers art, philosophy and human relations.

As the Palaces Burn

Thur 10/9: 7:30pm
This film set out to follow the band Lamb of God and their fans throughout the world, to demonstrate how music ties us together when we can’t find any other common bond. However, during the filming process in 2012, the story abruptly took a dramatic turn, bringing the band into a Kafkaesque nightmare, when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic. What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats.
