Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre will host an exciting new movie and music series for grown-ups this summer. During each event, patrons will experience a live performance related to the genre, theme or era of the movie. Enjoy the kick-off of Movies, Bands and Brews on Friday, June 7, with a performance by the David Bowie cover band Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth, as well as a screening of “Labyrinth.” The band will perform at 7 p.m. and the movie will start at dusk.

Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth (the name is an allusion to Bowie’s iconic role in “The Man Who Fell to Earth”) has been called “a Bowie tribute for Bowie lovers.” They play music from his entire career — the hits and the deep cuts — with reverence and energy. Their music, their look and their lively stage show all combine to create a memorable experience.

Tables that seat six directly in front of the stage are available for $72. All other seating will be free and open to the public. The movie and music series will continue July 5, Aug. 2, Sept. 6 and Oct. 4. The Mable House is at 5239 Floyd Road in Mableton. For more information, call the box office at 770-819-7765.
