Saturday Night at the Movies in Downtown Allentown


Please join us Saturday night in the Silk Lounge of Allentown Brew Works. Matt Lewis and Sarah Fulton will be screening their most recent documentary, "On Joy & Sorrow - The Glass Prism Story."

The film tells the story of The Glass Prism, who rose out of industrial Scranton with the first concept album, “Poe Through The Glass Prism.”

The Glass Prism achieved rock ‘n roll fame in the 1960s using the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe as the lyrics to its groovin’ progressive rock tunes, but the group’s journey to stardom was quickly snuffed out like so many bands of the time.

The film chronicles the rise of the band, its ultimate demise and the journey of the remaining members, who 40 years later, decided to reunite and start rocking again.

The film is an Official 2009 Selection of the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and the Flint Film Festival, of Flint, Michigan.

Lewis, Fulton and collaborator Bob Ross, will be in attendance to view the film with the audience and answer any questions.

There is NO admission charge. Doors open at 7 p.m. Oct. 24. The screening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Silk Lounge, lower level of Allentown Brew Works. Come early to claim a good seat! Guests are encouraged to patronize Brew Works, which is graciously hosting the screening, and enjoy the restaurant’s delicious food and award-winning microbrews.

Congrats to Matt and Sarah, and Bob on a really well done documentary.
As a veteran musician, it really touched me personally, and was inspiring to see the guys get the band back together. And they sounded great! Congrats too on a great turnout at The BrewWorks. It was fun to hang out with friends and share stories. A really fun night, and I hope we can do something like this again soon.

Sarah, is there a website where we can order cd's?

Sarah and Matt, CONGRATS on your great documentary, I am hearing nothing but RAVES from everyone who attended last night. Gianni and I would have been there if not for Game 6 of the American League Championship Series Starring the 26-Time World Series Champion New York Yankees ... and then the game got called cuz of impending rain at like 7:30 (doh!) and Gianni and I didn't wanna be gate-crashers and straggle in late. Greatly looking forward to your next showing and/or DVD purchase op. KUDOS, again! Great Work and a Great Happening that I am very bummed to have missed. GO YANKS (tonite).

Thanks for the positive feedback. We had a great time and we were really pleased with the turnout. There were about 50 people there! Silk Lounge was an excellent venue. We're very grateful to Brew Works for hosting.

I believe the band has CDs for sale at www.glassprismband.com
