KLRU Q - Night at the Movies

This Saturday KLRU-Q brings the movies to your home as well as a few other programs you’ll love. Here’s what the evening looks like on Q Night at the Movies:

The night begins with Arts In Context at 7 pm. Mother Falcon is a indie rock band with chamber music sensibilities, on the cusp of stardom. Created by Nick Gregg in his senior year of high school, Mother Falcon began as three cellists tired of the same daily routine. Building upon hours of practice and discipline, the group quickly grew to become a dedicated community of musicians, united by their desire to do something more with music. As many of the members face life beyond school, the group must decide the direction they take if they want to take their music and careers to the next level.

On Story follows at 7:30 pm. Frank Darabont, writer and director of such classics as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist, discusses adapting works by Stephen King and keeping his characters at the core of the story.

And for your movie Saturday evening (well, it’s not exactly a movie), KLRU-Q will be featuring Hamlet on Great Performances at 8 pm. Shakespeare’s tortured Danish prince receives a contemporary spin in this critically acclaimed production from the Royal Shakespeare Company. Starring David Tennant as Hamlet (familiar to fans as Dr. Who in the cult-favorite UK science fiction TV series) and Patrick Stewart as Claudius, this television adaptation features an edgy interpretation by innovative director Gregory Doran, utilizing location shooting at St. Joseph’s College, London, as the setting for a present-day Elsinore Castle. Winning a 2009 Olivier Award for his performance, Tennant is joined by Oliver Ford Davies as Polonius, Penny Downie as Gertrude and Mariah Gale as Ophelia.
