The folks at the Indianapolis Museum of Art have named names (at least some) for programming at its soon-to-be-opening  Tobias Theatre.

The initial schedule for this new "living room" for the arts includes:

--"Virtuosos and Visions," featuring violinist Cho-Liang Lin, pipa artist Min Xiao-Fen, and a performance of the genre-bending "Ghost Opera." The concert will serve as the opener for the venue on Nov. 21. (Okay, you can ask: a pipa is short-necked fretted lute. Please don't ever be shy about asking.)

--Noted chef and restaurant owner Alice Waters speaking on Dec. 2 on the subject of "Slow Food" (as opposed to fast food).

--Winter Nights movie screenings, echoing the popular outdoor Summer Nights series of mainstream film and classics. The Friday night flickers will run through January and February.

--One-Two Punch movie screenings, in which two somehow-related films will be paired. These will be featured the last Saturday of each month, beginning in November.

More announcements to come.

  • That sounds exciting! Can't wait to see what else they do with it!
  • Can't wait especially to hear Alice Waters. I'm really impressed with the direction the IMA is taking.
  • Although the IMA press release didn't mention specific films, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra does have the following very exciting program on its schedule:

  • The Tobias Theater's opening concert is a collabative venture between the Int'l Violin Competition of Indianapolis and the IMA. Cho-Liang Lin has been a jury member for three of our Competitions and 2002 Laureate Susie park will also be performing at the concert on Nov. 21. This concert is part of our 2008-2009 Laureate Series. Many more details to come!

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  2. to be the big fish in the little pond of IRL midwest racin' when yer up against Racin' Gardner

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
