Earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest: Is the Coast Really Toast? What about Wenatchee?

February 09, 2016    7 PM

Dr. Ralph Dawes, Professor of Earth Sciences at Wenatchee Valley College, will discuss recent earthquake research and history in Washington. Advances in Pacific Northwest earthquake science, an article in the New Yorker Magazine last summer, and reports in media shook up people to realize that earthquakes are an important part of the dynamic underlying landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. With such great beauty often come great risks. In most of Washington State, there has not been a big earthquake for several generations. Many people are unaware of great quakes that have shaken this area in the past. But scientists have become increasingly concerned about the likelihood of a major temblor and tsunami hitting the Pacific Northwest coast, such as the one that hit Japan in 2011; or a damaging quake occurring in eastern Washington, such as the one that struck near Entiat and blocked the Columbia River in 1872. Geologists cannot predict earthquakes, but by deducing from their histories occurring on a given fault, they can forecast future earthquake behavior. The program is free & open to the public.

Amy

February 11, 2016    7:00PM

From BAFTA Award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archival footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on our culture and the world we live in today. A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world's attention with her unforgettable voice and charisma. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy poured her heart and soul into her music, expressing personal struggles and pain through her intimate lyrics. The combination of her raw honesty and virtuosity resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of our time. Amy became an international sensation, experiencing a meteoric rise to fame she had never sought nor expected. The relentless and invasive media attention, coupled with Amy's troubled relationships and addictions, led her into a tragic cycle of self-destruction, resulting in her untimely death at age 27. Four years later, Asif Kapadia's powerful documentary invites audiences to remember and celebrate Amy as a brilliant artist while asking ourselves how it was that we watched her disappear in front of our eyes. Runtime: 2 Hours, 8 minutes Tickets: $12 General Admission, $14 at the door, $7 Student More Info: http://icicle.org/performances/amy Buy Tickets: https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?show=60940

The Wolfpack

February 18, 2016    7:00PM

THE WOLFPACK is a coming of age story following the six Angulo brothers who have spent their entire lives locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. All they know of the outside world is gleaned from the films they watch obsessively and recreate meticulously, using elaborate homemade props and costumes. For years this has served as a productive way to stave off loneliness — but when one of the brothers escapes, everything changes.
