    “Joan Baez I Am A Noise” - (NR; 1 hour, 49 minutes) -  Neither a conventional biopic nor a traditional concert film, but a raw and intimate portrait of the legendary folk singer and activist that shifts back and forth through time as it follows her on her final tour and delves into her extraordinary archive, including newly discovered home movies, diaries, artwork, therapy tapes, audio recordings, and revealing testaments about her life on and off stage — from her lifelong emotional struggles to her civil rights work with MLK and a heartbreaking romance with a young Bob Dylan. Final showtime Thursday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m.

    “Umberto Eco: A Library of the World” - (NR; 1 hour - LCTV presents:, 20 minutes) - See article elsewhere in this section of the paper. Two screenings: Thursday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m.

    “Stop Making Sense” - (PG; 1 hour, 28 minutes) -  Newly restored in 4K to coincide with its 40th anniversary, the 1984 film was directed by renowned filmmaker Jonathan Demme and is considered by critics as the greatest concert film of all time. The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit. Playing Friday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 2 and 7 p.m., and Thursday, Nov. 2 at 2 p.m.

    “Carrie” - (1976; 1 hour, 38 minutes) - Come celebrate Halloween with a special event screening of this classic horror flick. In Brian De Palma’s chilling adaptation of Stephen King’s 1974 horror novel (set in Chamberlain, Maine!), withdrawn and sensitive teen Carrie White, played by Oscar Nominee Sissy Spacek, faces taunting from classmates at school and abuse from her fanatically pious mother, Oscar Nominee Piper Laurie. When strange occurrences start happening around Carrie, she begins to suspect that she has supernatural powers and things eventually take a dark and violent turn. Playing for one screening only, Saturday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.

    “Late and Alone: An Intimate Portrait of Johnny Cash – LIVE in Concert!” - An LCTV presentation - Scott Moreau has traveled the world performing as Johnny Cash for nearly a decade. Tracing Johnny’s life and musical legacy from his early days to his passing, Scott Moreau sings 25 of Johnny’s most beloved songs and stories from The Man In Black’s life. This is the first of a series of live shows from Lincoln County Television’s “Classic Concerts Series.” Sunday, Oct. 29 at 2 p.m. General admission: $30.

    “Roman Holiday” -  (1953; 1 hour, 59 minutes) - Join us for the second film in Season 6 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club, celebrating the Legends & Lovers of Hollywood. Audrey Hepburn earned a Best Actress Oscar for “Roman Holiday,” her first major screen role. Hepburn is luminous as Ann, a touring European princess who sneaks out of her hotel in Rome to explore the city on her own. American reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), befriends the runaway royal to score the scoop on her adventures – but their red-hot romance gets in the way. We are pleased to be joined by film historian and Classic Film Club host Jeannie MacDonald for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback.
