The Wallis and Film Independent Present
On November 5, we kick off season two of Film Independent Presents at The Wallis with a signature Live Read event, welcoming Cameron Crowe’s 1992 classic, SINGLES, to our esteemed line-up. A defining work of the early 90’s, SINGLES was Crowe’s love letter to the Seattle grunge music scene. The film’s iconic soundtrack, featuring Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and a newly minted Pearl Jam, went two-times platinum on its initial release.
Making his Live Read debut, award-winning filmmaker James Ponsoldt will direct the season two launch of Film Independent Presents. With critically received indie hits such as The Spectacular Now and The End of Tour, Ponsoldt is well suited to bring this classic film to life on The Wallis stage.
Each Film Independent Presents Live Read at The Wallis is a completely unique experience, and SINGLES will be no different. With that in mind, our director has one request for everyone coming to the event: wear your flannel! James won’t even mind if you’ve kept it Down in a Hole and it Smells Like Teen Spirit – he wants to see an Even Flow of plaid and flannel coming through The Wallis doors.

Running Time: 2 hours with no intermission.
