CineMusic Live is a performance collective that brings together an array of media artists, local musicians, and improvisers, who edit, re-score, and redub films to create a live, mixed-media performance. During their short-term residency, CineMusic Live will explore whether various filmographic appearances of a single actor's face - Jimmy Stewart - can be successfully stitched together into one cohesive story. With familiar visuals colliding and creating unexpected combinations and juxtapositions, CineMusic Live will present an entirely new and unpredictable experience.

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
