From "Trainspotting" To "Nashville:" Woodstock's Marathon Movie Schedule

Admit it, you're going to Woodstock '99 for the movies.

That's what the Independent Film Channel might have been hoping when it announced its full lineup for the 1999 Woodstock Film Festival on Wednesday.

As we previously reported, the IFC hooked up with Woodstock organizers to put together an 80-hour cinematic marathon to run in conjunction with the music festival.

The indie lineup is a challenging assortment of pop-cultural favorites, mixing musical crowd-pleasers such as "Stop Making Sense" and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" with auteur-driven, narrative classics like Robert Altman's "Nashville" and Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise." Retro cult faves ("Repo Man," Reefer Madness") will appear alongside more recent cult fare ("Bottle Rocket," "Pump Up the Volume"), while a few underappreciated music-movie gems, such as the 1968 Monkee-trip "Head" and Brian De Palma's 1974 horror-rock opera "Phantom of the Paradise," will get their due as well.

Movie buffs can also get a sneak peek at the upcoming Farrelly Brothers-scripted flick "Outside Providence" on Saturday afternoon.

The celluloid slate gets rolling on Thursday night (before the music "officially" begins) with "This Is Spinal Tap" and will run straight through to Sunday evening, when the original "Woodstock" documentary is screened.

The marathon movie fest will take place near the concert site in a B-52 hangar which has been converted into an ersatz movie house, and all the films will be shown in digital format.

If indie flicks are what get your heart racing, tickets are still available for Woodstock '99 at www.ticketmaster.com. Musically, the festival will kick off in Rome, New York's Griffiss Park on Friday, July 23 and come to a close on Sunday, July 25.

Woodstock Lineup Announced

ROME, N.Y. (AP) — James Brown may get a brand new bag: Opening Woodstock '99.

If organizers can strike the deal, the Godfather of Soul will get the music started at the 30th anniversary festival, which begins Friday at noon.

``It was a major decision who would open. We think James will be a lot of fun,'' said Hayley Sumner, a Woodstock '99 spokeswoman. The deal for Brown to play Woodstock was not yet completed Monday but organizers expected it soon.

The festival's preliminary schedule was released Monday by Metropolitan Entertainment Group, which is producing a 65-hour pay-per-view live telecast of the megaconcert. Producer Jeff Rowland noted that artists are subject to change.

The telecast will be hosted by veejay Kennedy, along with guest celebrities such as Jenna Elfman, Andy Dick, Jimmy Fallon, Rosie Perez, Stephen Baldwin and others, Rowland said. The telecast begins at noon Friday and continues until 6 a.m. Monday.
