October 21, 2010: A Prairie Home Companion is coming back to the big screen, at a movie theater near you! Everyone had such a great time this February, that we're having another live cinecast event. We'll beam a live high-definition video feed of a special Thursday night performance from the Fitzgerald Theater (via satellite) to movie theaters across North America at 7 pm CT, 8 pm ET, 6 pm MT, and 7 pm PT on a taped delay.
It's a regular Prairie Home show made for the big screen, featuring the boot-stompin', heart-breakin' songs of Old Crow Medicine Show, the sweet sounds of Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, some smoldering honky-tonk from Joe Ely and soulful duets with singer-songwriter Andra Suchy. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Sue Scott, Tim Russell, with both Tom Keith AND Fred Newman. Plus a The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band and The News from Lake Wobegon. Two hours of non-stop fun on the big screen.
