Local Lens series: PETER & JOHN

Thursday, July 16th, 2015 7:30 pm
$10.00
2 Screenings! Thurs. 7/16 & Fri. 7/17, 7:30pm BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THURSDAY 7/16, 7:30PM BUY TICKETS HERE FOR FRIDAY 7/17, 7:30PM We are delighted to welcome filmmaker and Kingdom County director Jay Craven back to the Hall to screen his new Nantucket-based film, Peter and John.  Jay Craven’s Nantucket-based film, “Peter and John,” is based on the 19th century novel “Pierre et Jean” by Guy de Maupassant and it tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of an unexpected inheritance—and both brothers become attracted to the same young woman who arrives on their island. The film is set in 1872 Nantucket after the demise of the whaling industry, before the rise of tourism, and in the wake of the still-reverberating Civil War. It was shot there during the spring of 2014. As with his 2012 film, Northern Borders, Peter and John was produced through Craven’s Movies from Marlboro project, a partnership between KCP and Marlboro College, where 20 professionals mentor and collaborate with 30 students from 10 colleges who enroll at Marlboro for a film intensive semester that includes production of a feature film for international release. Maupassant’s novel was widely heralded by critics and writers – and it was cited as an influence by Tolstory, Nabokov, and van Gogh – for the beauty of its images and its potent themes of family, class, legacy, legitimacy, and self-discovery.

Peter takes pleasure from a cozy and affectionate relationship with his strikingly beautiful mother, Julia, and he enjoys a playful camaraderie with his mischievous and sometimes reckless younger brother John.

Bright New Stars: Tall Heights & Gabriel Morton

Saturday, July 18th, 2015 7:30 pm
$14.00
BUY TICKETS HERE We're thrilled to have this wildly talented duo from Boston back in the house for their second appearance at the Hall...this time with local musician Gabriel Morton opening the show, a rising star here on the Cape! "Folk" has become a funny label for Tall Heights. It felt right when they went all-in on a career in music, street performing over 100 days in 6 months to fund their first recordings. It felt right when their plucky single, "To Be Young," worked its way into the hearts of their hometown, Boston MA, and spread to the nation on Pandora and Spotify. It felt right when they played 300+ shows in '13 and '14 all across the United States. However, with the Spring '15 release of live singles "Spirit Cold" and "Horse to Water," Tall Heights stays true to their harmony, cello and guitar laden souls, while creating something brand new. Watch Tall Heights new video here: Spirit Cold video Lower Cape-based musician Gabriel Morton is a youthful funky gallivanter, a seasoned rhythmic vagrant with the blues marinated in whiskey, and stoic cowboy haunted by over-analytical introspection wrapped into a guitarist/songwriter/singer. Gabe's talents are in high demand, you can also see him perform with avant-rock outfit The Daggers and as a jazz/bossa duo with Dana Ayers. Tonight he'll be performing solo  his own original material, for the first time at Prez Hall!

An Evening with Suzan Saxman, author of The Reluctant Psychic (St. Martin’s 2015) The dead are right here, according to Suzan Saxman. A clairvoyant and medium since birth, Suzan will share her astounding experiences from over thirty years of communing with spirits from the other side. What do they want? What do they need from us? What can they teach us about how to die…and how to live right now? Honest and unfiltered, Suzan is a wealth of surprising insights—about suicide, abortion, reincarnation, and the vital importance of connecting with loved ones who have passed. A brief talk and reading from her memoir will be followed by a freewheeling question and answer session. About the author: Suzan Saxman has always been a psychic—since she was born, in her last lifetime, in all of her lifetimes. This time around she was born in Staten Island, grew up in New Jersey and moved to Woodstock a few years ago. Once when she was asked with whom she’d studied, she answered, “God.” Read more about Susan here: http://nypost.com/2015/04/07/shonda-rhimes-in-deal-with-reluctant-psychic/
