Invisible Hand, film screenings

February 26th, 2009 · No Comments · By

There are two different film events going on tonight; it’s the first spring screening of the Virginia Film Society at Newcomb Hall — they’re showing “Young Mr Lincoln,” John Ford’s 1939 biopic with ayoung Henry Fonda as Abe Lincoln. It sounds interesting, plus John Ford is usually pretty impeccable and amazing 90% of the time. The rest of this Spring’s Film Society screenings will be at Vinegar Hill, but tonight this one’s at Newcomb.

There’s also a screening at Lighthouse, which I believe will be a retrospective of student work done there. Anybody have more info on that event?

Invisible Hand are opening for Marah at Gravity Lounge; they’ve planned a special acoustic set for the occasion, and when I talked to Adam, Adam and Jon last night they all mentioned how hard they’d been working on putting it together. They also expressed disappointment that the show will be TWELVE dollars, and that they’re being asked to start exactly at EIGHT pm. Which is kinda baffling and disappointing (you know, I want to like Gravity Lounge, but they make it so hard.)  So, maybe I’ll see you there. (Or you can catch their regular set any other week for half-the-price or free…  Still, I’m curious to see how this one turns out.) Oh, and I’ve never heard Marah, although several people have advised me that I probably shouldn’t bother.
