With catered brunch reception.
MUSCLE SHOALS SOUNDLocated alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of America's most creative and defiant music. At its heart is producer Rick Hall who founded FAME Studios, overcoming poverty, tragedy and racial hostility to create music for the generations, while giving birth to the 'Muscle Shoals Sound' alongside talented session musicians like David Hood and Roger Hawkins. Legendary artists including Aretha Franklin, Greg Allman, Bono, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Wilson Pickett, and Keith Richards bear witness to the magnetism and mystery of Muscle Shoals and why it remains a global influence today.

BAD MOVIE NIGHT: THE INVISIBLE MANIAC - TUESDAY JUNE 25
Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night presents the sleazy, T&A slasher romp THE INVISIBLE MANIAC. Our beloved maniac, Kevin Dornwinkle, is scarred as a child after his mother catches him peeping on a neighbor via telescope. Twenty years later, he's a brilliant yet sexually repressed scientist who believes he has invented an invisibility serum. When it fails, his colleagues ridicule and taunt him, sending Kevin into a murderous, psychotic rage. The scientist soon escapes the mental hospital he was locked up in and hides out at a high school, under an alias, teaching summer school physics. His students see him as a pathetic nerd and mock him accordingly, but Dornwinkle has perfected his invisibility serum and is of course using it to catch a glimpse of his female students during their many frequent showers. Things soon spiral out of control and Dornwinkle uses his new found powers for even less unsavory undertakings. Will the students survive THE INVISIBLE MANIAC's transparent killing spree, or will they soon realize what you can't see can kill you? Find out this month at Bad Movie Night!
