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.
