The fun-loving duo of Holy Ghost! polish eardrums with slick electropop, earning acclaim from such publications as Rolling Stone. Rather than hire a Shakespearean theater troupe to reenact New York's 1980s club scene, the musicians layer dance-friendly synthesizer melodies with beats that recall those of electrofunk forebears Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa. Costumed revelers can warm up their boogie muscles during opening sets by nu-disco trio Jessica 6 and DJ Eli Escobar, who will mix rap and disco house using an eggbeater and a bowl filled with quarter notes. Complimentary Monster energy drinks refuel bodies throughout the night, and barkeeps will craft cocktails for those age 21 and older. In addition to flaunting saucy duds, go-go dancers will stop by to demonstrate how to cut a rug or mow a lawn with a cubic-zirconium navel ring.
When Northeast Historic Film acquired the Alamo Theatre in 1992, it was clear that the venue was a long way from its 1916 heyday. Over the course of the intervening decades, the space saw use as a grocery store, a slot-car track, and a video-rental store before falling into complete disuse. When the new owners entered for the first time, they found ramshackle plywood floors and water running through the dirt basement. Seven years and 50 trucks of excavated mud later, the theater saw the first light from its 35-millimeter projection booth. Now, the once defunct screen flashes with current Hollywood releases and the works of local filmmakers.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
