(LOVELADIES, NJ) -- The Lighthouse International Film Society will screen The Velvet Underground on Friday, November 5, 2021 at 8:00pm at The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies. The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock 'n' roll's most revered bands.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes, The Velvet Underground shows how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture. The film features in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band's creative ethos: "how to be elegant and how to be brutal."
Tickets are $8 if purchased online and $10 at the door. LIFSociety members get in for free. The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences is located at 120 Long Beach Blvd in Loveladies, New Jersey.
