Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Live onstage

Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Text by John Cameron Mitchell, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask
Live on the stage of the Strand Theatre in downtown Vicksburg, this groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash which also won multiple awards for its hit film adaptation. It tells the story of "internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just "an angry inch." This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is performed by Hedwig (née Hansel) in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by the hard-rocking band "The Angry Inch." Using songs and monologues, Hedwig tells her story... Hedwig describes her life's search for "The Origin of Love" and her other half. It's a rocking ride, funny, touching, and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

All performances at 7:30 PM

...and you could stay afterwards for our
first Secret Movie:

Nicholas Cage in
Mandy
Saturday, March 23 
at 10 PM


Why would we have a secret movie? Well, sometimes a movie might be too extreme for some people, so we decided that just because a movie isn't for everybody doesn't mean it doesn't have an audence. So, we hope to give edgier films a place (the Strand) and a time (ten o'clock) for those who want to experience them.

If you have followed the career of Nicholas cage, you likely cannot be shocked or surprised at what he gets up to in Mandy, an instant cult film from 2018.

The quiet life of devoted couple Red (Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas) and Mandy (Andrea Riseborough, Birdman) takes a dark and bizarre turn when a nightmarish cult and their maniacal leader (Linus Roache, "Vikings") seek to possess Mandy...body and soul. A shocking assault on the innocent pair leads to a spiraling, surreal, bloody rampage of all out, mind-altering vengeance. "Certainly not for the faint of heart" (The Hollywood Reporter), Mandy is "a primal, psychedelic rage-scream of a movie" (Slash Film).

So, a horror film, an action movie, a revenge thriller. You have been warned.

Director: Panos Cosmatos
Starring: Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Bill Duke, Richard Brake

Jimi Hendrix last great performance at the Strand

Saturday, March 16 at 7 PM 
Jimi Hendrix Electric Church 



Some people are bigger than the instrument they’re playing. In 1970, there
was nobody bigger than Jimi Hendrix. Be a part of the theatrical music event
of the year when JIMI HENDRIX: ELECTRIC CHURCH screens at the
Strand Theatre in downtown Vicksburg.

This critically acclaimed film combines color, 16mm multi-camera footage
of Hendrix unforgettable July 4, 1970 concert in its original performance
sequence together with a new documentary that traces his journey to the
festival amidst the dark shadow of civil rights unrest, the relenting toll of the
Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young
people across the country who were inspired by the Woodstock festival.

Witness Hendrix integral role in drawing nearly 500,000 people to his
Electric Church – a dusty scorching hot pecan orchard in Byron, Georgia
some 100 miles south of Atlanta. Together with Experience drummer Mitch
Mitchell and drummer Billy Cox, Jimi skillfully blended favorites such as
“Purple Haze,” “All Along The Watchtower,” and “Voodoo Chile (Slight
Return)” with confident renditions of new songs such as “Freedom” and
“Straight Ahead” that had not yet been released on album. As a colorful
fireworks display stretched overhead across the night sky, Jimi performed
the “Star Spangled Banner” to the wild delight of the massive audience. The
performance footage of the Experience has been carefully restored from the
original negative in high definition. The audio soundtrack includes stereo
and 5.1 surround mixes by Eddie Kramer directly from the original master
tapes.
