Maybe It Should Be Retitled Lost Weekend?
In Long Beach, there's a movie theater that screens only one film at a time and allows you to bring in bottles of wine from the venue's adjacent Art du Vin wine bar. I know amazing. It's like something out of the '50s and forgotten small-town America, just with more booze. You almost expect to see Chuck Berry's name or a promotion for Casablanca on the marquee. But what you will actually see Tuesday illuminated in the bright lights might surprise you the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "I'm With You" live concert from Hamburg. No, you were not transported to Germany by some mad scientist or drugged by your buddies and snuck across the ocean. Relax. You're still in Long Beach. And in celebration of I'm With You, the Chili Peppers' first album in five years, the Art Theatre of Long Beach will screen their performance in high definition live from Hamburg. You'll hear all the classics "Blood Sugar Sex Magik," "Scar Tissue" and "Suck My Kiss" plus new songs such as "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie." One question: Have you ever moshed in a movie theater while a guy named Flea ran around in just a sock?
