Some familiar faces will be rolling back into town Thursday, June 11. The New Belgium Clips Beer and Film tour returns to Ah-Nab-Awen Park for its third year in a row. At the event New Belgium will be offering some of their best sellers, as well as hard-to-find items like its dry-hopped sour ale and a peach ginger beer. The brewery will also be raffling off a brand new New Belgium Fat Tire bike.
Even the hopelessly lethargic are welcome to celebrate National Bike Month. It’s true: No strenuous riding is required to partake in the festivities. You can remain peacefully seated while sipping brews and watching bicycle-related short films. Nil calories will be burned.
Kent County Girls on the Run (KCGOTR) have teamed up with the Grand Rapids Art Museum to bring the LUNAFEST film festival to Grand Rapids on Friday, April 23. The prestigious traveling film festival showcases woman-made films exploring current women’s issues.
It's time to face the facts, film lovers: there's not much new going on in Hollywood. I mean, we love thrills and inspiring stories as much as the next person, but at this point we get it — the misunderstood hero fights the bad guy, and after a bunch of explosions and witty banter the good guy wins, gets the girl and leaves enough ambiguity at the end of the film to option a sequel.
OK, West Michigan. Again we find ourselves nearing the tail-end of winter, but not quite yet at the cusp of spring. Yes, we are stuck smack dab in that awkward liminal state commonly referred to as February. Don't fret, though. Whether you find yourself alone on Valentine's Day or are trying to shake off the feeling of an ominous Groundhog's Day fortune, West Michigan film will always be there to help console you. Check out some of these local screenings to help ward off the end-of-winter blues.
Not too long ago, last year's crazy polar vortex threw a giant wrench into the proverbial cogs of everyone's winter plans. Businesses suffered and Grand Rapids blew through its entire winter road commission budget in what seemed like seconds. Yeah, we tried to block that from our memories, too.
It's a new year, which means avid film fans everywhere are already busy picking out their most anticipated releases for 2015. And while it's easy to get caught up in the next Hollywood blockbuster and the next big-budget Oscar sensation, we at Revue would like to remind our readers to keep an eye out for independent and local films.
With last year's infamous polar vortex looming fresh in West Michigan's collective conscious, it's safe to say some locals are entering into the winter season with a sense of apprehension. Sledding and making snowmen are fun and all, but so is being able to actually get out of your driveway in the morning. To soothe your worries about the impending blizzards, why not take a trip to the theatre and lose yourself in some seasonal cinema?
One of the many joys of Halloween (well, other than the candy, parties, costumes and did we say candy already?) are the classic horror movies. While a good horror movie is welcome any time, there's something special about immersing yourself in a cinematic All Hallow's Eve experience with a few dozen others sharing the same excitement.
This month households across America sit down and make a list of everything they're thankful for. We here at Revue are no exception, and have written our own list. Grandma? Check. Pizza? You betcha. Michigan-made movies? Hell yes!
