Mountainfilm in Aspen presents: No Man's Land @ Wheeler Opera House

Why did a group of heavily armed, self-described patriots occupy the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the winter of 2016? The occupation of Malheur emerged from economic hard times on the range; it featured a collision of symbols, the rugged cowboy of the American West versus the allegedly tyrannical federal government; it became a focal point for a plethora of right-wing causes; and it was a major media circus. Perhaps the most surprising revelation in the rigorously nonjudgmental feature documentary No Man’s Land  — a Mountainfilm Commitment Grant-funded project by David Byars  — is the heady sense of purpose appropriated by the occupiers in championing the cause of liberty, even as the substance of their grievance remains elusive. As militia member Jason Patrick concludes, the Malheur occupation was “basically some pissed-off people trying to get their voices heard.”

Bumper Jacksons | On the Rise Series @ Wheeler Opera House

Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78’s, the Bumper Jacksons elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, playful style.  The group began as a duo, a city-meets-country experiment between songstress Jess Eliot Myhre and banjo player Chris Ousley. In five short years, Bumper Jacksons grew to a brassy seven-piece, with horns and pedal steel.  They’ve been honored multiple times as the Mid-Atlantic’s “Artist of the Year” & “Best Traditional Band” at the Washington Area Music Awards.

Halloween Film: Edward Scissorhands @ Wheeler Opera House

Co-presented with Aspen Film

Join us for a FREE screening of Tim Burton’s 1990 dark romantic fantasy film Edward Scissorhands!

A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being — the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, though, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg’s teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward’s hands make him an outcast.

Go, Dog. Go! @ Wheeler Opera House
Oct 28 @ 5:00 pm

Go, Dog. Go! brings the adventures of P.D. Eastman’s book to life in a frolicking musical dog party. The cast of this beloved preschool favorite has gone to the dogs—with cars, hats, a moonlit boat ride, and even a wild game of ball—as this hilarious visual spectacle manages to sneak in some important lessons about life between innings. Go, Dog. Go! is a musical romp full of surprises, color, clowning, vaudeville, singing/barking, and of course, six lovable dogs! Most enjoyed for young people age three and older.
