MEMBERS-ONLY: An Evening With Kris Kristofferson (plus "Cisco Pike" reunion w/ Harry Dean Stanton!)

Join us for a truly special evening of songs and stories, as we chat live with Kris Kristofferson about the many facets of his music and movie life — from Rhodes Scholar and helicopter pilot, to outlaw country star and Hollywood rebel. And, stick around for a Cisco Pike reunion/screening with the film’s director Bill L. Norton, and co-star Harry Dean Stanton (who played Kristofferson’s songwriting partner in the film), as the two old friends swap lyrics, melodies and fond memories from one of the best cinematic portraits of L.A. on film — a stoner tour of our city’s best ‘70s burn-out locations.
Cisco Pike Dir. Bill L. Norton, 1972, 35mm, 95 min.

In the early 70s, a new kind of Hollywood connected with a new kind of country music — and no man brought both these worlds together better than Kris Kristofferson. Not only was he helping to take country out of the Grand Ol’ Opry and onto the real dirt roads of our shared Americana, with hits like “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Help Me Make it Through the Night” — but he also made the most successful Hollywood transition out of any cowboy singer from the time, acting in a series of the era’s now-classic films. When directors like Peckinpah, Scorsese and Mazursky sought soulful authenticity, they found it in the warm, world-weary, blue-eyed gaze of this hard-scrabble singer-songwriter.
