Movies Return to the Lawn at American Tobacco

ATC logoFOX 50

Movies On the Lawn The American Tobacco lawn will become a cinema for again this summer with another FREE event this Friday. On the Lawn Presented by University Ford & Kia and Bull City Bucks features the second Movie on the Lawn of 2012 with “Andrew Bird: Fever Year” on Friday, July 6th.

Filmed during the culminating months of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s most rigorous year of touring, Andrew Bird crosses the December finish line in his hometown of Chicago – feverish and on crutches from an onstage injury. Is he suffering hazards from chasing the ghost of inspiration? Or merely transforming into a different kind of animal “perfectly adapted to the music hall”?

“Fever Year” is the first to capture Bird’s precarious multi-instrumental looping technique and features live performances with collaborators Martin Dosh, Annie Clark of St. Vincent, and others.

The movie begins at 9pm under the water tower. Bring a chair or blanket and pick up dinner from one of American Tobacco’s great restaurants.

Full Frame sponsors the Movies on the Lawn series at American Tobacco this summer.Movies will also be screened on the following Fridays with a start time of 9pm:
