THE MODERNAIRES, now celebrating over 78 years in show business, had their beginnings as a trio in Buffalo, New York, in 1935. Their first “gig” was with the Ted Fito Rio Orchestra. The boys, Hal Dickinson, Chuck Goldstein, and Bill Conway were called Don Juan-Two-and-Three. Soon after that they joined the Ozzie Nelson Band and became known as The Three Wizards of Ozzie. Next came a stint with Fred Waring, where they recruited Ralph Brewster, and The Modernaires were finally a reality.

(SEPT. 5-11) Levitated Mass is the story behind the monumental artwork of the same name by Michael Heizer, which is now installed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. First conceived in 1968 but not technologically possible until 2012, this two-story tall, 340-ton granite boulder was moved from its desert quarry over 105 miles on a custom-built, 206-wheeled tractor trailer to its permanent home at the world-renowned art museum.
Pray's documentary follows the boulder's historic journey, which caused an international media sensation as it challenged the imagination of hundreds of thousands of spectators over the ten nights it crawled through the streets of Los Angeles, defiantly provoking the question, 'is that a multi-million dollar work of art or just a big rock'? Pray captures the spectacle of it all, as well as the reactions—ranging from awe to outrage—from the crowds of people who watched it journey through LA's depressed inner city as well as through neighborhoods filled with million dollar homes.
