Reel in the Closet

September 22

September 22nd 7:15pm - Reception 6:00pm (See prices below)

Reel In The Closet is a feature-length documentary that lets us connect with queer people from the past through the rare home movies that they left for us.

From Director Stu Maddux:

"I was searching for a way to really understand the people who came before me, not just read about them. I discovered old queer home movies dating back to the 1930s in closets and attics around the world. There were also all these recorded news stories and community productions that they left behind. I spent three years making a documentary that I hope lets you feel what I felt the first time I saw one of these movies. But a big part of the story for me are not the few movies that have been saved but all the ones being thrown out- sometimes on purpose. In a decade, most will be destroyed or no longer playable. We will never get that feeling back."

The film will benefit the LGBT Elder Advocates of WNC, a grassroots organization affiliated with the Blue Ridge Pride Center. Serving to enrich the lives of the older LGBT community in Western North Carolina through educational opportunities, promoting equity of services, providing access to caregivers supports, promoting intergenerational cooperation and creating social opportunities for older LGBT individuals. LGBT Elder Advocates of WNC's mission is to improve the lives of older LGBT adults in Western North Carolina by (1) connecting people to resources; and (2) promoting cultural change by raising awareness and providing education.

Meet the Director, Stu Maddux and enjoy a wine and cheese reception prior to the film. The reception is next door to the Fine Arts Theatre at Blue Spiral 1, 6:00opm.

Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices

Oct. 20

October 20th. 7:00pm

Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices
A Benefit Screening for The All Souls Cathedral Arts Commission

Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices traces the journey of a small town California boy who planned to be a minister like his father, but instead became the greatest conductor of choral music the world has ever known. At the heart of the film is the mystery of Shaw’s genius. With no formal musical training, he achieved a stunning early success in popular music and later became legendary for his interpretations of classical music’s great choral masterpieces. An early champion of civil rights, Shaw had a mystical belief in the power of community and could communicate his passion for music with spellbinding intensity. As Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in the latter half of the twentieth century, Robert Shaw changed the course of musical history through the many voices he set on fire with an enduring love of music.

All tickets are $12.50, and are available at the Fine Arts Theatre Box Office, or online here-
