Cinema a Go-Go Is Abominable! - August 23

Get more info about this event »

Summer fun continues at Cinema a Go-Go with a wild double feature on Friday, August 23. It's jammed with mad scientists and crazy inventions that defy the laws of physics! 

From 1971 comes The Abominable Dr. Phibes starring Vincent Price in one of his most memorable roles. Directed by Robert Fuest, this one's become a cult classic for its art deco sets, blacker-than-black humor and an over-the-top performance by Vincent Price.  

The bottom half of our bill (and we mean that literally) is Danger!! Death Ray!, a 1967 Eurospy adventure starring onetime movie Tarzan Gordon Scott. A scientist invents a death ray "for peaceful purposes" (??) and promptly gets snatched by the bad guys. It's up to secret agent Bart Fargo (and what kind of name is THAT for a spy?) to save the day!  

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. General Admission tickets are $10 and are available for purchase at the Liberty Hall box office.

Description: Our three-concert summer series celebrates women in all aspects of musical creation, performance, and experience by delving into how women were influential as patrons, how women historically seized the spotlight as performers (both as singers and instrumentalists), and how women made strides in the still-male dominated world of music composition. Our final concert of the summer series in 2019 will focus on female composition; there are a number of women composers from the early modern era, but perhaps the most well-known today is Barbara Strozzi, who was born in August 1619 and whose 400th birthday we will celebrate in August 2019. We will also perform music by other female composers of the Baroque period such as Francesca Caccini, Elisabeth Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, and others. In celebration of these historical female composers, we will also premiere a commissioned contemporary work for Baroque ensemble composed by Ingrid Stölzel, Assistant Professor of Composition at the University of Kansas. Her work will be paired with Strozzi’s cantata “Che si può fare”; this pairing, between a work written in the seventeenth century and one written in 2019 will highlight the presence of women in music composition over the past four hundred years. Join us for a pre-concert talk given by Dr. Alison DeSimone (UMKC Conservatory) at 6:30 pm! Submitted by: Alison Clark DeSimone Kansas City Baroque Consortium
