The Saddest Music in The World + Guy Maddin Live!
From the folks at The Talkies:
“If you’re sad and like beer, I’m your lady”- Lady Port-Huntley
It may be cliché but what better way to ease our financial-minded woes than to gather round the silver screen to witness Lady Helen Port-Huntley’s (Isabella Rossellini) contest to end all contests: who can produce THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD?
Blowing in from the northerly diabolic region known as Winnipeg Guy Maddin’s live commentary marks The Talkies’ 5th installment. Uniquely gifted to push this nascent notion into uncharted waters Maddin, the maniac behind the expanded viewing spectacles such as Branded Upon the Brain and the beautiful essay My Winnipeg, innately understands how special the space in the cinema can be and will, on June 18th, transform The Heights Theatre into the best Talkies experience yet.
Arrive at 7p.m. on June 18th for a 35mm screening of THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD starring Isabella Rossellini and Mark McKinney (Kids in the Hall) . At 9:00p.m. this celluloid salvo screens again with the extra somethin' somethin' that only The Talkies provides: live commentary from Guy Maddin himself.
7p.m.- THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD -screening only 7/advance & 8/door
9p.m. THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD with GUY MADDIN- 18.50/advance & 22.00/door
