Film: The Velvet Underground (2021)

Presented with Upstate Films

Proof of vaccination is required for this event (see below)


This brand-new Todd Haynes documentary explores the multiple threads that converged to bring together one of the most influential bands in rock and roll. “Haynes appears to have vacuumed up every last photograph and raw scrap of home-movie and archival footage of the band that exists and stitched it all into a coruscating document that feels like a time-machine kaleidoscope.”

Mini concerts with Juan Cardona, Jr. on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ take place 30 minutes before each film and are made possible by the New York Theatre Organ Society (NYTOS).

In addition the lobby will feature an Andy Warhol themed photo op plus, on display, a psychedelic outfit worn by Velvet guitarist Sterling Morrison in the above photo. Donated by Sterling’s widow and longtime Poughkeepsie resident Martha Morrison. It will be up for auction to benefit the Bardavon.

The Bardavon/UPAC film series is sponsored by Marshall & Sterling, Herzogs, Rondout Savings Bank and The Upstate Coalition for a Fairgame.


Masks are optional.
