Reel to Reel: Super Duper Alice Cooper
Apr 22 , 2014 Doors: 7:00pm Show: 10:30PM
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n' roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher's son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60s, to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s, to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other's' souls. Still touring the world, with over 100 concerts scheduled in 2014, and hosting his internationally syndicated Nights With Alice Cooper radio show five nights a week for over a decade, Alice shows no sign of slowing down. Premiering at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival April 16-27, Super Duper Alice Cooper is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010 GRAMMY-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film Monkey Warfare. Alice's story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original Alice Cooper band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider. After screening the film, Alice will take the stage for a panel discussion.
