Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema is gearing up for its biggest event of the year, Oktoberfest, taking place next weekend, but first, the nonprofit arthouse theater is hosting a documentary about the seed industry. John Null caught up with MAC's programming director, John Holt, to discuss what's ahead at Maiden Alley.


Maiden Alley Cinema brings Brooklyn-based band Miracles of Modern Science to their space this evening, also performing is Paducah-based group Fairseas. On October 17, they host their fifth annual Oktoberfest, with headliner Jessica Lee Wilkes, a Bavarian spread by Kirchoff's and five breweries. Tracy Ross speaks with Maiden Alley's Executive Director Landee Bryant-Greene about the festival.
