Scraped from LEVNET today:

Steven M. Martin's award-winning documentary "Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey" will be shown at GRAND PERFORMANCES, 350 S. Grand, Los Angeles, on July 22 at 8 p.m.

Before the screening, Kevin Lee and I will demonstrate the theremin and play a short set. They have asked use to do something together as a duet. I had thought of "Dueling Banjos" maybe?! haha

Should be a fun evening - it's always great to see the documentary on the big screen, and best of all: IT's FREE!!

"Grand Performances (GP) is Southern California's largest presenter of free performing arts programs and a landmark nonprofit arts institution established with a primary focus on bringing together the diverse peoples of Los Angeles, in unique settings, for concerts celebrating the cultural contributions of our community's peoples.

Over the last 18 years it has developed an unmatched history of working with artists of importance to Los Angeles' many communities in order to share their work with all the people of the region. Music, dance, theatre and even film have been presented to audiences that have numbered as high as 6,500 people.

Based at California Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles' new financial district, Grand Performances was created as part of an initiative developed by the City's Community Redevelopment Agency to insure that artists and other citizens of Los Angeles who had not been able to participate fully in the cultural life of the community would have access to a "world class" venue and program. The City wanted this program centered in the one part of Los Angeles that belongs to all communities and that is the recognized center of government, business and culture.

Beginning in 1986 with a few lunch hour concerts, the current program has grown to include an evening and weekend series, festivals, commissioned choreographies and extended theatrical runs each year from late June through the end of October. All 40-plus summer events are presented free to the public."
