INDIAN LAKE - Bruce Springsteen, "The Boss," with his E Street Band will appear larger than life at the Indian Lake Theater Friday and Saturday, June 18 - 19, 7:30 p.m. at Indian Lake Theater (ILT). His appearance at the ILT's big screen is the result of a program that represents a new partnership for the nonprofit theater and an organization dedicated to bringing live performances to numerous venues through Internet feeds.
Emerging Pictures has created a tradition of providing fans the opportunity to see the new London Calling: Live in Hyde Park show in advance of its June 22 DVD release date. A 90-minute version of the film will be showing at art house cinemas around the U.S. and London with box office proceeds will go to the Danny Fund/Melanoma Research Alliance. In nonprofit theaters, such as Indian Lake, the screenings will benefit the venues themselves.
"We are very excited about our new partnership with Emerging Pictures," said Patricia Connor, ILT director. "This only enhances what we are already presenting with feature films, live stage performances, community events and live concerts."
Following the Bruce Springsteen debut, Indian Lake Theater will continue to host noted musicians and performances through their Emerging Pictures opportunity.
"The theater's new relationship with Emerging Pictures will allow us to stream a dynamic series of live opera and ballet performances from the great performance halls of the world, and screen hard-to-get art, independent, and classic films with our crisp digital projector," said Ben Strader, ILT board president. "As the theater continues to develop programming for everyone who calls our towns home, these new program options will allow us to be more flexible in an affordable manner. For those of you who like variety - Emerging Pictures will add more fun, more diversity, and bring more of the world onto our screen."
Admission to London Calling, Live in Hyde Park is $10. To make reservations or for further information regarding Indian Lake Theater and the Emerging Pictures program, call 648-5950 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
