Susan Greenbaum. Live. One song.

Notice: To open The Bijou's mini-fest – “Facing Fascism: Time Capsules” – Susan Greenbaum is going to perform live. Before the 6:20 p.m. January 19th screening of “The Great Dictator,” to resonate with the moment, we're delighted to say Susan will sing a most apt song, less than 18 hours before the inauguration of the USA's 45th president. A new president who seems hellbent on shaking things up, to say the least. 

The song? 

Woody Guthrie's “This Land Is Your Land.”
Susan says, “Music has a way of reaching people in ways that no political speech can. People internalize music, and when the lyrics resonate with the times we're facing, the song becomes more powerful than the most raucous political speech, more believable than the most enticing political promise.”

So film buffs coping with inauguration day blues, here's your chance to help create a moment we'll remember. Show up. Sing along with Susan and make Pete Seeger's ghost proud.

If you're so inclined we'll be happy to sell you a glass of wine or a cold beer. The popcorn is free.
