In Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album, composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles
fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their bestselling album, The
Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album).

Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music—from hard rock
to country to chamber music to Avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in
Beatles history that included the death of Brian Epstein, the creation of Apple Corps, and a trip to
India to study meditation.

In this multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road Studio for a
look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar
Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs from the White Album. It’s an educational journey into
the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions, allowing the audience to
see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking songs and understand their lasting influence on
popular music.

The “White Album” is the first of in a series of four, to be followed by “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts
Club Band,” “Revolver,” and “Rubber Soul.”

“Our audiences love Scott Freiman’s presentations. It’s not just an event for fans of The Beatles. It’s an event for anyone who loves music and the treasure trove of stories hidden within each song. The best part is how much fun Scott makes it to go deep into the Fab Four’s creative process”
— Pablo Kjolseth, International Film Series Dir., University of Colorado
 

“For anyone who loves the Beatles, Scott is an amazing resource. His lectures are completely entertaining and well-constructed. You’ll come away with a richer appreciation for every element of the craft: songwriting, musicianship and production. Scott takes you deep inside the amazingly creative process. Even for songs you’ve enjoyed countless times, you’ll hear — and learn — something new.”

Time Warp 80s Night Presents PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES

Tuesday, November 22 at 7:30PM

Still stressing about getting the whole family together for Turkey Day? Come blow off some steam with The Hipp Cinema! We’re presenting our next Time Warp 80s Night on Tuesday, November 22nd at 7:30pm with the Thanksgiving classic, PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES! Starring Steve Martin and John Candy in iconic roles, this riotous film follows a family man’s attempt to make it to Chicago for Thanksgiving, but his crossing of paths with a hapless shower curtain ring salesman leads to a hilariously crazy journey home. Each mode of transportation brings its own difficulties and laughs, and since it’s a John Hughes film, you know there are going to be touching, meaningful moments behind all the ridiculousness. This one-night-only movie event will include themed drinks, so dress up 80s style, bring your family and friends, and come on down to The Hippodrome to enjoy PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES!

Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best retro clothing from the 80s. Admission is $12.

THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED)

By Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor

Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church, where all faiths are welcome because we’ll believe anything. But there’s a problem: none of the acts scheduled to perform have arrived, so three members are pressed into service to perform the entire Variety Show and Christmas Pageant by themselves. An irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays, The Ultimate Christmas Show (Abridged) is festive, funny, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate our favorite holiday traditions.

“A pure delight from start to finish … Inspired madness!” —Broadway World

“Brought down the house with gales of laughter.” – Theatre Mirror

“This will make your spirits bright, whether you joyfully embrace the upcoming season or get dragged into it kicking and screaming.” —Broadway World
