Julian Price

June 22 & 25

June 22nd. 7:00pm
June 25th. 11:00am

Julian Price
Envisioning Community. Investing in People.
Directed by Erin Derham.
Music by the Asheville Symphony Sessions.

Julian Price was a thoughtful, gentle man who changed lives, and transformed a community. While there were many people involved in Asheville’s revitalization, Julian’s impact was significant. His donations supported organizations like Self-Help Credit Union, Asheville Greenworks, Mountain XPress, Pack Place Arts & Science Center, the Grove Arcade Public Market Foundation, Scenic NC and the Coalition for Affordable Housing. Through Public Interest Projects, he invested in iconic downtown businesses like Malaprop’s, Zambra, the Laughing Seed and the Orange Peel and renovated buildings for housing like the Carolina, the Asheville Hotel and the Old Penney’s Building. He generously shared his financial wealth with the community, but his biggest contributions were his understanding that small things can have a big impact and his ability to find great people and give them the trust and support they needed to succeed.

“Julian Price” is a must-see for anyone who loves living in or visiting Asheville and solidifies Derham’s status as an elite filmmaker.” - Edwin Arnaudin for the Asheville Citizen-Times

“Julian helped start the movement of good ideas that changed Asheville. When people come here and stroll our sidewalks, they are walking past a lot of little trees that Julian planted. A lot of little ideas and trees that have grown tall. What this movie keeps whispering to us is : ‘We’ve all got a handful of seeds.’ And making a ramp, helping someone past an obstacle, that's a simple thing, but it changes everything. “ - David Wilcox, singer and songwriter, after viewing the film

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Y.E.S. (Youth Education Scholarship) Program at Diana Wortham Theatre.

All tickets are $10, and are available at the Fine Arts Theatre Box Office, or online here-

Love Won

June 26

June 26th. 10:30am

Catered brunch to follow at First Congregational UCC

Join the Campaign for Southern Equality as we celebrate one year of national marriage equality!

From 2011-2015 more than 200 couples applied for marriage licenses across the South as part of the WE DO Campaign. They were all denied. This is their story.

The WE DO Campaign launched in 2011 in a church basement in Asheville, NC. The concept was simple: LGBT couples would apply for, and be denied, marriage licenses in their hometowns all across the South.We were telling a story about what it means to be LGBT in the South. To be proud to call this place home. To face discrimination every day. And to be ready to fight for equality.

The Supreme Court marriage victory on June 26, 2015 changed our country. That decision was born out of decades of work in the courts, in the legislatures, and in the streets of our hometowns. In the South, one part of that story was the people who took a stand with the WE DO Campaign.

Film Details:

Our filmmaker, Ryan Murdock, is putting the final touches on editing more than 80 hours of footage spanning more than 4 years into a one hour documentary. Ryan’s last film was the award winning of Bronx Obama

Tickets for the film and brunch are $35 for adults and $20 for kids. Online Tickets

Synchronicity - with Special Guest Ben Lovett

July 7

July 7th. 7:00 pm

Join composer Ben Lovett for a screening of SYNCHRONICITY to benefit Asheville FM. Ben scored the film in Asheville using vintage analog synthesizers to create the film’s unmistakable retro sound. Lovett, whose original score has been praised by Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Filmmaker Magazine and many others, will be on hand for an audience Q&A following the screening.

SYNCHRONICITY is a mind-bending ‘Sci-fi Noir’ in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca and Memento. Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future, but in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower's identical match in the present. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life’s work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.

A new special edition vinyl release of Lovett’s soundtrack for the film will be on sale at the theatre all weekend. The album was first released on CD and digital by Lakeshore Records, who teamed with MONDO imprint Death Waltz Records to create the new 180 gram vinyl complete with custom artwork and liner notes from director Jacob Gentry.

“Likely to be a future classic... Ben Lovett’s sophisticated electronic score is a brooding, glacial synth masterpiece and one of the best scores of 2016.” — Mondo

“Ben Lovett’s old-school synth score evokes the retro-futurist aesthetics of fondly remembered 1970s and early ’80s sci-fi films.” – Variety

“The Ben Lovett score, which plays like a wonderfully shameless love letter to Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack, is simply fantastic.” — Nerdist

“This is without a doubt my first true love of 2016, a score that takes me back and on a journey through space and time. They don’t make scores like this anymore…” — Soundtrack Geek

“Ben Lovett’s spectacular, persistent, synthesized musical mix of percussion, piano, horns, and classical chorale swings between abstract atonality and fibrillating, unsettling sounds.” — Filmmaker Magazine

Reimagining Lincoln Center and the High Line

July 21

July 21st. 7:00 pm

The Asheville Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is hosting a screening of “Reimagining Lincoln Center and the High Line”. As Asheville face the challenges of growth, development and public/private partnerships, this film offers a glimpse into the process of New York City .

With the almost simultaneous completion of two large-scale projects in New York City — the renovation of the High Line and revitalization and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts — Diller Scofidio + Renfro has galvanized the public's attention. Between 2004 and 2011, the firm, in collaboration with James Corner Field Operations, converted the derelict High Line railroad tracks on the city’s West Side (from Gansevoort to 30th streets) into a sophisticated 1.5 mile elevated urban park.

In this 54-minute documentary, intelligent commentary from the architects is complemented by remarkable cinematography and interviews with New York City planning commissioner Amanda Burden and other civic figures. Critics and theorists Mark Wigley, Anthony Vidler, and Mr. Filler, offer insights into the firm’s history, previous completed projects, and their unique process of reimagining the public identities of two major New York urban spaces.

All Tickets are $10, and are available at the Fine Arts Boxoffice or Online Here-

Proceeds from the screening will benefit Asheville Parks and Greenways Foundation to help fund projects in the Asheville community.
