Micky Dolenz In Person!
The 50th Anniversary of “The Monkees”
Sponsored by Rhino Entertainment

Inspired by the success of The Beatles, “The Monkees” premiered on television in September 1966, running for two seasons and turning stars Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork into one of the most successful bands of the 1960s. We salute the Emmy-winning comedy series with an evening of digitally remastered episodes including:

“Monkee vs. Machine” (1966, Dir. Robert Rafelson) The band saves a toymaker from being downsized by efficiency expert Stan Freberg.

“Monkees Get Out More Dirt” (1967, Dir. Gerald Shepard) All four guys fall for local laundromat owner Julie Newmar.

“The Devil and Peter Tork” (1968, Dir. James Frawley) Peter is tricked into selling his soul for a golden harp.

“The Frodis Caper” (1968, Dir. Micky Dolenz) In the series’ final episode, the quartet foils Wizard Glick’s plans for world domination through television.

Discussion following the second episode with actor Micky Dolenz, moderated by Illeana Douglas. The Blu-ray release of “The Monkees – The Complete Series” will be available for sale in the lobby at 6:30 PM.
