Nineteen ­years­ in­ the­ making, Icepick to the Moon is a feature-length documentary about
Rev. Fred Lane, the pants-­less, Band Aid­-adorned performer who achieved a worldwide cult following, starting in the Eighties on college radio, when the Shimmy Disc label made Lane’s records easier to find.
Rev. Lane is described by his obsessed fans as “subversive,” “completely satirical,” “the Dada Duke Ellington,” and “Demon Frank Sinatra.” They've spent years examining every detail of his albums, only to be led deeper into blissful confusion. Icepick to the Moon pulls the curtain back on both the cult of Lane and the mysterious artist himself, from his early involvement with the Raudelunas arts collective to his current occupation making whirligigs to sell on the arts and crafts show circuit. You’ve never seen Lane like this!
Director Skizz Cyzyk (above right) will be in town to play with Mink Stole’s band and will be with us in person for a Q & A after the show. Who knows, you may meet some very special guests!
Tickets are $9 each. Member discounts in effect. No other passes, discounts, or special offers apply.

If you’re reading this on your phone, thank Hedy!
Hedy Lamarr, the screen siren deemed “the most beautiful woman in the world” in the 1930s and ’40s. also invented a form of wireless communication called “frequency hopping” that revolutionized mobile communications all over the world. This feat would directly lead to the creation of secure communications for wireless phones, Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi technology itself. And that’s just a fraction of her amazing story.
Join us on Tuesday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m. as we pay tribute to an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day. This event includes
  • Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story;

  • and finally, Hedy’s influential U.S. feature debut, Algiers (1938).
