This Mon at 4pm, 8pm + 9:45pm — The Cramps & The Mutants: The Napa State Tapes. #DocSpotlight #MusicCityMondays (Tickets at link in bio, or

On June 13, 1978, the soon-to-be legendary rock band The Cramps went to play Napa State, a psychiatric hospital in the small town of Napa in Northern California. Opening for them was The Mutants, an eclectic septet of art school punks from nearby San Francisco. Here for the first time ever: the long lost footage, unedited, remastered from the original reel-to-reel videotape, and further contextualized by a short documentary.

Now playing, FAIR PLAY — the explosive feature debut from writer-director Chloe Domont — a taut psychological thriller that unflinchingly stares down the destructive gender dynamics that pit partners against each other in a world that is transforming faster than the rules can keep up. (Tickets at link in bio, or

With commanding performances by @phoebedynevor and @aldenehrenreich as a couple whose romance hardens into ruthlessness when stakes climb higher than even the volatile fortunes of their clients. With razor-sharp precision in its writing and tense cinematography, FAIR PLAY unravels the uncomfortable collision of empowerment and ego.

This coming Sat-Tue, Sep 30- Oct 3, INVISIBLE BEAUTY — fashion revolutionary Bethann Hardison looks back on her journey as a pioneering Black model, modeling agent and activist, shining a light on an untold chapter in the fight for racial diversity. From walking runway shows alongside Iman to discovering supermodels like Tyson Beckford and mentoring icons like Naomi Campbell, Hardison has been at the epicenter of major representational shifts in fashion. INVISIBLE BEAUTY stands as an absorbing record of Hardison’s accomplishments and a rare contemplation on the life of a radical thinker. (Tickets at link in bio, or #DocSpotlight

And…at the Sat, Sep 30 1:00pm showtime — a post-screening discussion in collaboration with Nashville Fashion Week featuring stylist Bentley Caldwell, model and photographer Charika White, hair and makeup artist Sherita Leslie and fashion entrepreneur/retailer Keith Fulton of the Trenches Gallery.

This Mon, Sep 26 at 4pm + 8pm, MAX ROACH: THE DRUM ALSO WALTZES — the story of a musician whose far-reaching ambitions were inspired and challenged by the inequities of the society around him. (Tickets at link in bio, or #MusicCityMondays #DocSpotlight

Roach’s stunningly diverse seven-decade career marked him as one of the great musical artists of the 20th century — and a pioneering cultural activist — at times when the nation was steeped in racism. The film follows Roach across a rich and complicated life, days of now-legendary achievement and also deep personal struggle, and the price he paid for his outspoken views. His was an epic musical journey — from the revolutionary jazz of the 1940s to the Civil Rights years, through experiments in hip hop, multi-media works and beyond.

Tony Todd’s astounding turn as the hook-handed boogeyman paired with Bernard Rose’s sweeping, impassioned directing, and further bolstered by Philip Glass’s epic score ensured that this incredible horror/romance hybrid from the twisted mind of Clive Barker would forever be ingrained in the cultural consciousness.

“This standout documentary combines archival footage and animated re-enactments to share one survivor’s memories... The film’s coherence is a reflection of both the skill of the filmmaker, and the heroic efforts of Aurora herself to ensure that her view of history would not be forgotten.” —Teo Bugbee, Critic’s Pick @nytimes

At the Belcourt this Fri-Wed, Sep 22-27, Inna Sahakyan’s AURORA’S SUNRISE. A genocide survivor becomes a silent movie star: Aurora Mardiganian’s odyssey is nearly unreal. After losing her family, escaping slavery, and enduring Hollywood greed, she journeys far to tell the world of the Armenian genocide. (Tickets at link in bio, or

And at this Fri’s 7pm screening, an introduction from Helen Makhdoumian, postdoctoral fellow in the collaborative humanities at @vanderbiltu who specializes in the history and representations of the Armenian genocide.
