The 2014 film “Super Duper Alice Cooper” will be shown on Saturday, July 5, at 7:30 p.m. at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, 122 Hourglass Drive, Stowe Mountain Resort.
Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son, struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60s, to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s, to the winking comeback as glam metal godfather in the 80s, one will watch in wonder as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s soul. The story is told in the form of a “doc opera,” a dizzying blend of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with archive footage. Alongside the hits that defined an era, overlooked gems of Alice Cooper’s playbook and scenes from vintage scary movies serving as allegories for Alice’s madness are melded into montages that soundtrack his life.
Tickets are $12 at SprucePeakArts.org, 760-4634.
