Music Fan Film Series

Music Fan Film Series

Friday, July 4th, 2014

…surrounded by people who love music just as much as you do

The Music Fan Film Series started on the July 4th weekend of 2014 when John Wackman helped organize the Music Invasion Weekend which consisted of A Hard Day’s Night 50th Anniversary Edition, Stop Making Sense, The Last Waltz, and Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me. To compliment the event an enthusiastic group of local record collectors curated an exhibit in the Rosendale lobby titled: “50 Years of Classic LP Covers”–drawn from the collections of fans throughout the mid-Hudson Valley. A programming sub-committee has been curating the Music Fan Film Series ever since.

Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words
Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5
7:15 pm | R | 1h 33min | Documentary, Biography, Music

In the 20th Century, Frank Zappa made his mark as a musician unlike any other in America. With a wild eccentric iconoclastic attitude guiding his distinctive music, which it was itself guided by a firm intellectual integrity, Zappa made himself an unforgettable force in popular music. This film covers his life and work through various archival footage through the decades. Whether it was his taboo challenging early creations, his outspoken efforts against the political forces determined to censor him or his constant quest for new artistic challenges, Zappa made a mark no one could ignore.
