FILM SCREENING: “MEEK’S CUTOFF”

Sat, 07/23/2011 - 8:00pm - 11:00pm

Opening Weekend!

A FILM BY KELLY REICHARDT
Starring MICHELLE WILLIAMS
With SPECIAL LIVE PRE-SHOW MUSIC from FRANK FAIRFIELD

We’ll be popping the popcorn as you settle in for an outdoor screening of a “a real movie-movie”1 that just may be “some kind of masterpiece”2 . Released to theatres just this April, and the talk of film festivals across the country, this “nearly perfect”3 film follows a small band of settlers, traveling in the earliest days of the Oregon Trail. The mountain man they’ve hired as their guide leads them on an unmarked path across the high plain desert, only to become lost in the dry rock and sage. Special Opening - Frank Fairfield: A 25 year-old, old-time musician – equally at home on fiddle, banjo and guitar – who plays organic songs “that have existed forever” with the timeless beat of eccentricity. To experience Frank Fairfield, go to www.americanstandardtime.com/frank-fairfield/. General Admission: $15. TreePeople members & seniors: $10. “Meek’s Cutoff” rated PG for some mild violence, brief language and smoking. 1Village Voice, 2Slant Magazine, 3Los Angeles Times.
