Anyone lucky enough to have seen "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," Jeff Krulik and John Heyn's classic 1986 video of rabid fans holding forth before a Judas Priest concert right here in Maryland, won't want to miss the team's long-awaited follow-up, "Neil Diamond Parking Lot," which will have its Baltimore premiere today at the Mansion Theater at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Special bonus: "Heavy Metal Parking Lot: The Lost Footage," outtakes from the first video.
To make this event even more poignant, it marks the end of an era for the Mansion: programmer Skizz Cyzyk will shutter the venue in order to pursue a film project this summer. When he returns in the fall, look for the Microcinefest at the Orpheum. In the meantime, give the Mansion a proper send-off by joining in a rousing chorus of "Song Sung Blue." Get those Bic lighters primed, people.
