The ShowRoom Cinema – Monmouth County’s leading independent art house theater has teamed up with the Asbury Anchor – coastal Monmouth’s County’s foremost arts and culture webzine to create the 10/10/10 SUMMER MUSIC FILM SERIES.

10 different music movies will be screened for 10 weeks at 10PM at the ShowRoom Cinema. Next in the series: BIG EASY EXPRESS: MUMFORD AND SONS.

3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of track – BIG EASY EXPRESS documents a cinematic musical journey. Directed by renowned filmmaker Emmett Malloy (THE WHITE STRIPES UNDER GREAT WHITE NORTHERN LIGHTS) this incredible new film captures nothing less than history in the making. Indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee’s Old Crow Medicine Show, and Britain’s acclaimed Mumford & Sons, climbed aboard a beautiful vintage train in California, setting out for New Orleans, Louisiana on a “tour of dreams”. The resulting film from this journey is nothing short of magical. Part road movie and part concert film, BIG EASY EXPRESS bears witness to the birth of a new musical era. With poignancy and beauty, Malloy documents these incredible musicians as they ride the rails and wow the crowds, from Oakland – to New Orleans. So climb on board for a vibrant, raucous, railway adventure. Filled with joyous crowds, late night laughter, endless music – and a train that was bound for glory.
