‘About Endlessness’ Showing At Opera House
FREDONIA – The 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center has added the critically acclaimed About Endlessness to its list of films that can be streamed online in the Opera House Screening Room.
The Opera House Screening Room provides movies and other digital programming online to its patrons in the wake of the continued COVID restrictions. The cost of streaming the films vary, depending on the film. The revenue generated is shared by the Opera House and the film studios.
“Since we have not yet reopened, this is one way of providing our patrons with access to programming, and of generating income for the Opera House,” said Rick Davis, Opera House executive director.
About Endlessness is a reflection on human life. Tickets to view About Endlessness are $12 per household and include an exclusive question-and-answer following this film with Director Roy Andersson and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ruben Ostlund.
Still showing is “a warm hug of a film” The Outside Story – while on a tight deadline, an introverted editor (Brian Tyree Henry) is locked out of his apartment. In order to find his way back inside, he’s forced to interact with the last thing he wants to — his neighbors.
In Our Time Machine, shaken by the news of his father’s dementia, artist Maleonn creates “Papa’s Time Machine,” a time-travel adventure performed on stage with life-size mechanical puppets. Through the play’s production, he confronts his own mortality. A moving meditation on art, the agonies of love and loss, and the circle of life.
Also still available for free is JCC Professor Traci Langworthy’s For The Vote: Two Profiles in Woman’s Courage, which tells of Dunkirk’s Elnora Babcock and Jamestown’s Edith Ainge and the role each played in the long-fought battle for women’s right to vote.
The Opera House Screening Room is found on the Opera House website at www.fredopera.org. Links for each film take the patron to third-party studio sites for ticket purchase. Tickets are per household and patrons are able to view films on nearly any mobile device, smart TV, laptop or computer.
The 1891 Fredonia Opera House is a member-supported not-for-profit organization located in Village Hall in Fredonia. Currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, the theatre is offering a variety of digital program offerings.
