Opening Night for the 2019 Albuquerque Film & Music Experience is this coming Tuesday, Sept. 24. It starts with a VIP and Sponsor Reception at the Hotel Albuquerque from 5:30 to 7pm. VIP guests, Festival Pass holders and sponsors are invited for food, drink and live music. After that, it’s over to the DynaTheater at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science (1801 Mountain Rd. NW ) for the Opening Night movie. The film that kicks it all off in style this year is Schemers, starting at 7:30pm. This Scottish drama follows a young tycoon-to-be (Conor Berry) as he escapes the depressing government housing of Dundee and cons his way into the gangster-controlled music promotion biz—putting together a massive Iron Maiden concert, circa 1980. Full-festival passes for AFME (Sept. 24 through 29) run $100 to $200 each. Individual film tickets are $10 general admission. We’ll have more on the festival in next week’s Alibi.
