Event Details

Director Lee Storey examines the story of the music group “Up With People”, that relentlessly Upbeat Bulwark of TV Variety Shows in the 1960’s, & 70’s. Seemingly perpetually “On Tour”, this Peppy Youth Choir was embraced by everyone from Billy Graham to Richard Nixon & was a Super Bowl Half-Time Mainstay! But behind the scenes, cult-like conditions are alleged!! Arranged Marriages! Shady Corporates Sponsors & Weird Politics! See the documentary that dares to tell the whole truth behind “Up With People”!

(in the micro-cinema, tickets on sale thirty minutes before showtime, cash only)
