On Our Screen and Stage – Week of March 18, 2019

This week at Hopewell Theater, learn¬†about¬†Paramahansa Yogananda, the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s, during Tuesday night’s screening of AWAKE: THE LIFE OF YOGANANDA. Presented in partnership with Princeton Center for Yoga and Health, Rama Ramanathan will introduce the film and lead a post-film discussion after the film. Director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in STOP MAKING SENSE, the concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983, a part of our newest series, Films That Made Music. Two chances to watch it on Thursday: a Crybaby Matinee at 11 am and a regular screening at 7 pm. Friday night, Jamie Brickhouse (voices on Beavis and Butthead, 4-time Moth champion, performer on WGBH/PBS-TV, and previous cast member of This Really Happened…Storytelling at HT) brings his multi award-winning, critically-acclaimed, darkly comedic solo show Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother to the Hopewell Theater. The animated feature TITO AND THE BIRDS screens Saturday at 4:30 pm and APOLLO 11, an HT staff favorite at Sundance Film Fest this year, opens Saturday night! More info and tickets here.
