20 feet from stardom trioBackup singers live in a world that lies just beyond the spotlight. Their voices bring harmony to the biggest bands in popular music, but we’ve had no idea who these singers are or what lives they lead, until now. Directed by Morgan Neville and produced by Gil Friesen, a music industry executive whose curiosity to know more about the lives of the background singers inspired the making of 20 FEET FROM STARDOM. trailer

to-kill-a-mockingbird2_9855Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1961 the film version of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD was released in 1962 starring Gregory Peck and Mary Badham. Atticus Finch is a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930s. He agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. How will the trial turn out – and will it change any of the racial tension in the town? In 1995, the film was listed in the National Film Registry. It also ranks twenty-fifth on the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest American movies of all time. In 2003, AFI named Atticus Finch the greatest movie hero of the 20th century. Wednesday at 1:30 and 7:15. trailer

solesurvivorIn the history of aviation, there have been only 14 of them: sole survivors of a commercial aviation disaster. Most have never spoken publicly about the loss, the guilt, the immense pressure of feeling “spared. SOLE SURVIVOR brings four of them together (George Lamson, Cecilia Cichan, Bahia Bakari and Jim Polehinke) to share their very complex, personal stories for the first time. Jim was the co-pilot of Comair Flight 5191 that crashed in Lexington on August 27th, 2006.  Jim lost the use of his legs in the accident, but when he woke up from his coma, the most devastating news was that everyone on the plane had perished.  One Show Only: Thursday, July 18 at 7:30pm. Advance tickets available here. trailer
