2 movies: The Beatles Revolver plus Secret movie: The Love Witch...

Deconstructing the Beatles Revolver

Strand Theatre

Saturday, August 28 at 7 PM

We continue our series of lectures on film about Beatle albums with Deconstructing the Beatles Revolver. When we showed the Rubber Soul edition of this series Bill Justice approached me as soon as it ended to say he wanted to sponsor this next chapter.

In “Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver,” composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their seminal 1966 album, Revolver.
In many music polls, Revolver is rated the top album of all time. The 1966 album launched a period of studio experimentation for The Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live. With memorable songs, such as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine,” and “Tomorrow Never Knows,” The Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been before.
This visual lecture on screen explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to many of the tracks from Revolver, Mr. Freiman will also explore the creation of two other songs recorded during the same time period, “Paperback Writer” and “Rain.”
Mr. Freiman conducts an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions.
Join us for this look into the Beatles' creativity. Advance tickets are $10 and will be available at Highway 61 Coffeehouse. or online:

In our latest secret movie, a modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s Technicolor thrillers.
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to...well, come see it.
With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the ‘60s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
