What is Re-Imagined Radio?
Start with a 1936 theatre. Re-enact historic radio dramas complete with voice actors and Foley sound artists. Garnish with digital SFX, music, and visual backdrops. Overlay student digital interpretations of the base narrative. Invite a live audience to watch, eat popcorn, and participate via social media. The result: Re-Imagined Radio—storytelling as never before heard, or seen.
Join us for our 2018 season featuring:
September 26th – DRACULA
Dracula, as a radio drama, is adapted from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel of the same name. Mr. Stoker, an Irish writer and theatre manager, wrote his novel to address the fears and uncertainties of Victorian society in the late 19th century. Dracula continues to signify fears of the unnatural, and how abnormality can evolve from one source and infect the surrounding society with discord, misfortunes, and evil. In July 1938, Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre on the Air presented a radio drama adaption of Stoker’s novel. Since then, the radio script has lain dormant . . . buried in a box . . . covered with earth . . . waiting to emerge. It was revived through arcane galvanic sciences and careful administrations of elixers and tonics and is presented with the intent of sending a skittering up your spine, a preview of Halloween!

Day Drinking with Molly LIVE is an afternoon gathering featuring laugh-out-loud wine tasting with Molly Madden, Founder of RedHen Collective, along with real talk about farmers, equity, RedHen’s Direct Public Offering and their vision for the new wine economy.

We wrap this edition of Noir Nights on September 10th with another Preminger/Andrews/Tierney collaboration, 1950’s WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS!
Andrews plays hard-boiled Detective Sergeant Mark Dixon, a cop who wants to be something his old man wasn’t: a guy on the right side of the law. But the over-zealous Dixon isn’t afraid of roughing up a bad guy or two which leads to complaints by the perps. Much of SIDEWALK unreels in one night, when the murder of a high-roller from out of town precipitates a string of events that lead to Dixon’s becoming an accidental killer.
Niche proprietor Leah Jackson will be on hand to discuss the wines which will also be able to be purchase by the glass for your movie watching pleasure (and by the bottle as you leave).
Tickets to individual films are $10 and include a collectible ticket. The tasting for the three wines is $5.
