News   Art Theater Co-Op Will Present Industrial Musicals Film Show: Live!
 
What's an industrial musical? The Art Theater Co-Op will help you find out! The cooperatively owned art house will present Industrial Musicals Film Show: Live!, a series of "in-house musical propaganda from General Electric, Kellogg’s, Citgo, American-Standard, Purina, and more" featuring commentary by "Letterman" writer Steve Young, Dec. 4 at 9:30 PM at the Art Theater Co-Op in Champaign, IL.

The work is described as such: "When David Letterman writer Steve Young began finding obscure corporate musicals while gathering albums for the 'Dave’s Record Collection' segment, he had no idea of the journey he was beginning. Now, twenty years and one book later, Steve is the world’s authority on the bizarrely entertaining shows created for company conventions and sales meetings from the 1950’s to the 1980’s. He’s been a guest on NPR’s 'Fresh Air' and Dave Letterman’s 'Late Show,' he does presentations at conventions and festivals, and he loves to screen ultra-rare films from his collection. Thrill to in-house musical propaganda from General Electric, Kellogg’s, Citgo, American-Standard, Purina, and more, with Steve’s informative and hilarious commentary. It’s a secret world of Americana that will astonish, amuse, perplex—and make you want to get out there and sell something!"
