When: Sat., Oct. 25, 9:30 p.m. 2014
The Rosendale Theater hosts a screening of Ken Brown’s 60’s light show film, PSYCHEDELIC CINEMA. Ken Brown describes himself as “a survivor of the psychedelic wars of the 1960,” making the current PSYCHEDELIC CINEMA, stand today as a window on another time.
Swirling colors and lights, clip art animations, girls in flowing skirts, candles, flowers, and more than a few references to drugs, meld together in a complex montage of images that transport the viewer to another time and place.
Brown’s films were projected over the great bands of the 60’s - Hendrix, Velvet Underground, Frank Zappa, Sly and the Family Stone, Neil Young, The Who, Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead.
The film, Psychedelic Cinema will be accompanied by Psychedelic Cinema Orchestra – a boston supergroup of silent film composers and independent musicians.
The group will meld their signature junk percussion, bass clarinet, baritone sax, electric violin, guitars, and recorded samples of music, speaches and audio artivacts from the 60’s, into an improvised maelstrom of psychedelic sound.
Price: $10 at the box office, $7 for Rosendale Theatre members.
