MA – Carsick Signing

Comments Off on MA – Carsick Signing

jw-carsickDirector/author John Waters appears in conversation with James Parker of The Atlantic Magazine to discuss Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America on Tuesday, June 2nd at 6:00pm!

John Waters is putting his life on the line. Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard sign that reads “I’m Not Psycho,” he hitchhikes across America from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers. But who should we be more worried about, the delicate film director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting travelers transporting the Pope of Trash? Laced with subversive humor and warm intelligence, Carsick is an unforgettable vacation with a wickedly funny companion–and a celebration of America’s weird, astonishing, and generous citizenry.

About the movie:

A young, hipster entrepreneur (Nick Kroll) crashes and burns on the eve of his company’s big launch.

With his entire life in disarray, he leaves Manhattan to move in with his estranged pregnant sister (Rose Byrne), brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale) and three year-old nephew in the suburbs, only to become their manny. Faced with real responsibility, he may finally have to grow up, but not without some bad behavior first.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry appears to present his new memoir on Thursday, October 9 at 6:00 pm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre

Press Release:

In the tradition of the mega-bestseller Life by Keith Richards, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry opens up for the first time about the wild, inside story of his life in the legendary band he cofounded in 1970—which is still going strong today. In Rocks, Joe Perry exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as the lead guitarist of Aerosmith. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationship with singer Steve Tyler and reveals the real people behind the larger-than-life rock-gods on stage. The nearly five-decade saga of Aerosmith is epic, at once a study in brotherhood and solitude that plays out on the killing fields of rock and roll.

Tickets are $35 each and include one copy of Rocks on sale at the link. Joe Perry will only sign copies of Rocks purchased at Brookline Booksmith.

From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST, BIRTH) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial—or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.

Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

Press Release:

The New England Browncoats present the Seventh Annual “Can’t Stop the Serenity” Event at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, MA at midnight on Saturday, June 23rd, 2012.

“Can’t Stop the Serenity” is a global fundraising effort featuring charity screenings of Joss Whedon’s 2005 film Serenity to benefit Equality Now. In the last six years, the New England Browncoats have raised over $22,000, and in total over $600,000 has been raised for Equality Now around the world.

Fans of Joss Whedon show Serenity on his birthday to honor him and to raise money for

his favorite charity, Equality Now. Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure.

In addition to raising money for Equality Now, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women that offers emergency and long-term assistance to women. In the past six years the New England Browncoats have collected over 2,500 lbs. for local charities. Anyone that brings a donation will be eligible for raffle prizes.

Tickets for this event will be $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. They are available at the Coolidge Corner Theatre Box Office or online at http://www.coolidge.org.

About Serenity: A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything – or anyone – to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship. From the mind of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngel) comes a new edge-of-your seat adventure loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds. Serenity is rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

About the New England Browncoats: We are a group for fans of Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Serenity with members in all New England States. Our primary purpose is organizing local social and charity events. Our website is http://www.nebrowncoats.com.
