Here in JC. The Debut of Poetic Voices takes place at the Grass Roots Arts Facility. Many spoken wordsmith will be there with I believe an opportunity to read your own material. Therese is DJ'ing tonight at the Lamp Post with Street Justice behind the bar.

On Friday, which is now today, you can fly our to California and check out Chico Mann. If you don't have access to a plane, you can float over to the Lamp Post and CHeck out the Country Stylings of Any Day Parade and The Poconos. These two bands are also playing the Bowling Party Fundraiser we are having at Barrow Mansion on Sunday Febrauary 10th.

Saturday Night's Music calender has both Ape Fight and Surf Rocker's the Coffin Daggers playing. The Coffin Daggers are part of a surf brigade at Otto's Shrunken Head. Ape Fight will be at the Knitting Factory. JMeanwhile, back at the Lamp Post, the House of Leaves plays with Hunters, Run !

Alright once Friday and Saturday are fully extinguished, we can get past all of the two weeks of Superbowl trivial news stories and get to the Game and more importantly the Superbowl Tailgate Party at 58. Here's how things will work. Dress your best and bring a cooler with beer and/or a lawn chair to sit on. We'll supply the wings, and other deep friend goodnesss to eat. The Super (Karaoke) Bowl Fun Time Band will be performing a special half time show ala The will delight Even the Losers (tba). The Pre game festivites start around 4 pm.

Here's a video to get you rallied up whichever side of the 50 yard line you sit on.

Friday, Feb. 1
8:00 PM - Citizen Kane
Starring Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Everett Sloan, Dorothy Comingore. Directed by Orson Welles.(1941, 119mins. Pre-dates rating system, but is suitable for most audiences.)
The fascinating - and for William Randolph Hearst, enraging - character study of the rise, successes and failings of a powerful, egotistical publishing figure. Welles shattered many film-making rules, and created some new ones. Extraordinary cinematography by Gregg Toland, great score by Bernard Herrmann and Oscar-winning screenplay by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz.
Saturday, Feb. 2
3:00 - The Lady From Shanghai
Starring Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth, Everett Sloane. Directed by Orson Welles.(1948, 87mins., B&W, Columbia Pictures. Pre-dates rating system, but may be unsuitable for young children.)
Complex murder mystery about an adventurer who joins a seductress and her husband on a Pacific cruise. Extraordinary cinematography. The famous climatic scene in fun-house hall of mirrors is riveting.
6:30 - The Magnificent Ambersons
Starring Joseph Cotton, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter, Tim Holt, Agnes Moorehead. Directed by Orson Welles.(1942, 88mins. Pre-dates rating system but is suitable for most audiences.)
Based on a novel by Booth Tarkington, this is the story of a family's unwillingness to adapt its way of life to changing times.
8:40 - Touch Of Evil - 50th Anniversary screening, featuring a newly struck print!
Starring Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Orson Welles. Directed by Orson Welles.(1958, 111mins., B&W, Universal Pictures. Pre-dates the rating system, but may be unsuitable for children.)
Baroque crime drama, character study, with a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor thrown in, highlighted by dazzling photography and great acting. Heston is a Mexican law enforcement officer who, on his honeymoon, tangles with the corrupt Police Chief of an American border town, played by Welles in one of the most memorable of his many memorable screen roles.
The Loew's Jersey is proud to present the premiere screening of this new print of Touch of Evil, which was taken from the 1998 negative. In addition to being as faithful as possible to Welles' ideas, this print also boasts beautifully restored, razor-sharp black-and-white cinematography.

Each screening is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors & children 12 years old and younger. Combo discounts are available for multiple screenings. Call (201) 798-6055 or visit for more info.
