La La Land finally comes to the Lincoln's screen beginning Monday, March 27 at 7:30pm. La La Land made history in January, breaking the record for most Golden Globes won by a single film after winning all seven of the awards it was nominated for. Then the spectacular film was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, tying with All About Eve and Titanic for the most nominations of all time. On the day of the big show on February 26, it didn't break records for most Oscars won, but it did take home six including the best picture Oscar (for, like, 30 seconds.) 
The story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggling to make ends meet while pursuing their dreams in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts. With modern day Los Angeles as the backdrop, this musical about everyday life explores what is more important: a once-in-a-lifetime love or the spotlight.

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends-Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.

What the critics are saying: 
Washington Post, Ann Hornaday
A brilliant piece of filmic writing, one that bursts with fierce urgency, not just for the long-unresolved history it seeks to confront, but also in its attempt to understand what is happening here, right now.

In the Art Bar: Jeff Whidden

A middle school art teacher by day, Jeff Whidden enjoys capturing fleeting moments in nature with his camera.  His passion for surreal, abstract and impressionist art influence his approach to photography and are expressed in a series of images taken on the slopes of Little Mountain, right here in Mount Vernon. With the intent to encourage daydreaming, he is calling the series “Imagining Little Mountain.” Except for some manipulation of color, these pictures are pretty much straight out of the camera.
