Besides the Park Circle Film Society, there aren’t too many places where you can catch a flick for just $5. But the Charleston Music Hall is now one of them — they’ve kicked off a new Fall Film series, which features a different movie every Wednesday at 8 p.m. So far they’ve shown The Big Lebowski
, Old School
, The Princess Bride
, Pulp Fiction
, and Stop Making Sense
, a Talking Heads concert movie directed by Johnathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs
). Next up on Sept. 25 is the classic O Brother Where Art Thou
, with pre-show live music by Big John Belly.
Charles Carmody, owner of the Music Hall, says they started showing films because there was no place downtown for people to kick back and watch movies. He wants the weekly series to be a community-driven event. “We want the community to get behind us and let us know what they want,” Carmody says. He plans on showing older movies, many with cult followings, as well as more current films.
Big John Belly plays at 7 p.m. and the film starts at 8 p.m.
