Eric Ginsberg is at it again.
The tireless impressario who brought to life the Red Bank Music Community and its songwriters’ workshops and open-mic nights and StreetLife concerts is now bringing the big screen to town.
Through the RBMC, Ginsberg has put together a weekly series of music-themed fims that will play, free of charge, at the Red Bank Visitors’ Center at 17 East Front Street (NOT at the train station, as the visitors’ center website still claims).
The series debuts Monday night with “This is Spinal Tap,” the spiritual godfather of a generation of mockumentaries, starring Harry Shearer, Michael Keaton and Christopher Guest.
The films to be shown include documentaries, musicals, bio-pics, dramas and comedies focused on music, all in furtherance of the RBMC’s mission to provide non-traditional music education to local musicians, writers, performers and music enthusiasts.
Here’s the sked so far, with the ratings of the films to be screened:
December 11th: Yellow Submarine (G)
December 18th: Ray (PG-13)
December 25th: NO FILM
January 1st: NO FILM
January 8th: Chicago (PG-13)
January 15th: Woodstock (R)
January 22nd: That Thing You Do (PG)
January 29th: Almost Famous (R)
Donations to the non-profit RBMC are welcome, and may be made both at the screening or via the RMBC website.
