It Might Get Loud
Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center will host a free public screening of the documentary film “It Might Get Loud” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, in the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center auditorium, located at 3000 General Pershing Blvd.
It Might Get Loud isn’t like any other rock’n roll documentary. Filmed through the eyes of three virtuosos from three different generations, audiences get up close and personal, discovering how a furniture upholsterer from Detroit, a studio musician and painter from London and a seventeen-year-old Dublin schoolboy, each used the electric guitar to develop their unique sound and rise to the pantheon of superstar. Rare discussions are provoked as we travel with Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White to influential locations of their pasts.
The event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. Refreshments, including pizza from Pizza23 in Oklahoma City, will be provided beginning at 5:30 p.m. Enter to win a Squire Stratocaster Guitar by Fender from Ampy Shanty in Norman valued at $200 Value.
Independent film screenings are part of Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center’s mission to encourage artistic expression in all its forms through education and exhibitions. Other recent films have included: “Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us,” “Perdida,” “OT: Our Town” and “Forks over Knives.”
“The films we select are typically thought-provoking documentaries with content that relates to our exhibitions in some way,” said Robin Huston, director of programming for Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. “Our current exhibition by singer/songwriter Bryan Adams includes several images of musicians like those in the film. We thought it would be appropriate to show a film that looks closely at those characters and lifestyles.”
Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the exhibition and enjoy live music from 2ndSt after the screening.
