THURSDAY, AUGUST 25:  The Barkley Marathons (the race that eats its young)
Special guest Tyler Gibbons, who composed the soundtrack for “The Barkley Marathons,” will host a post screening Q & A session.

A famous prison escape sparks the idea for a cult-like race that has seen only 10 finishers in its first 25 years. This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary reveals the sports world’s most guarded secret.

Every year 40 international runners descend upon a small town in Tennessee to test their mental and physical limits against the Barkley Marathons. Devised as a mockery of James Earl Ray’s historic prison escape gone awry, the race has seen only 10 finishers in its first 25 years.  The race’s co-founder Lazarus Lake is as weird, unpredictable, and irresistible a character as the idiosyncratic event he has created.  With a secret application process, unknown start time, and treacherous terrain, the Barkley has gained cult-like status with ultra-runners and amateurs alike.  This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary invites you to the sports world’s most guarded secret; where pain has value, failure is spectacular, and it only costs $1.60.  Southern Vermont musician Tyler Gibbons composed the soundtrack for “The Barkley Marathons,” and will host a post screening Q & A session.


Continuing by popular demand, Next Stage Arts Project and The Gleanery continue a special combination Dinner and A Movie on the fourth Thursday of the month. This month, the chefs at the Gleanery will serve a special Louisiana-themed menu at 5:30 p.m., in time for diners to make it to the hosted 7:00 p.m. film screening around the corner at the newly-renovated and air-conditioned Next Stage. Prices for the dinner and movie combination are $23.00, for reservations call 802-387-3052. Limited seating available.
