Films by Phil Solomon

Submitted by Sam Brasch on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 11:13am

CU Professor Phil Solomon's films are not your average trip to the movies. Solomon's American Falls installation—originally commissioned for the Rotunda of Washington D.C.'s Corcoran Museum—surrounds viewers with images of Niagara Falls that morph into everyday images of American life and found footage from old Hollywood movies. The use of waterfalls is no accident; the piece envisions the flow of the American past as a changing collective dream. Join Solomon for one night as he shows American Falls among other pieces. Be sure to stay for the Q & A. Tue 7 p.m.

Holy third dimension Batman! For the first time the world’s most famous crime-fighting duo is jumping off the page (and screen) and into the arena. This all-new live adventure will delight both kids and those who are still kids at heart. This coming-of-age story follows Robin's transformation from an orphaned circus performer into Batman's faithful sidekick. Gotham City comes to life with impressive stunts, pyrotechnics, illusions, video screen sequences, and the appearance of some of Batman's most iconic villains, such as the Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, and the Joker.

The Script

Submitted by Edie Richardson on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 9:23pm

It's a rags-to-riches story: Three young Dubliners combine their passion for pop, rock, and soul, and suddenly they're performing with legends like U2. From hit sings like "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" to "Breakeven," the Script is gaining momentum with their addictive blend of hip-hop rhythm and soulful vocals. Their new album is set to debut this fall. Tue 7:30 p.m.
