It’s not breaking news that the record industry is not what it was in its heyday. The music streaming freely to smart phones and computers across the globe tells the tale, along with the industry’s ever-plummeting sales figures. But remnants of the old record business remain, from the grooming and packaging of promising young artists to big-time recording contracts that don’t necessarily prove beneficial — artistically or financially — to those same artists.
For many viewers, the continued existence of that age-old system is the first revelation found in director Luke Meyer’s insightful Breaking a Monster. It’s a fly-on-the-wall documentary that tells the story of Brooklyn heavy metal band Unlocking the Truth, which consists of three African-American boys ages 12 and 13 at the time the film was shot. Heavy metal is not a field widely known for its diversity.
The Indywood Theater will present a double feature of Louisiana-made cult classics Nutriaman and Swamp Women at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 23 at the historic Happyland Theater space (3126 Burgundy St.). More widely known as Terror in the Swamp (but restored by Indywood to its original title for the benefit of nutria-loving locals), Nutriaman shows what happens when a science project intended to breed oversize nutria for fur goes terribly wrong. It will be presented on VHS cassette as the film has never been digitized.
Swamp Women is one of the first films made by exploitation-movie magnate Roger Corman. It tells the story a female cop who goes undercover to accompany three prison escapees through the swamps of Louisiana and find a cache of stolen diamonds.
The Bywater neighborhood's Happyland Theater presented movies from 1914 to 1957. Indywood takes over the currently work-in-progress space for one evening of restored cinematic glory. Suggested donation is $5. More info here.

Muggles, rejoice: a new chapter in the Harry Potter saga arrives in bookstores at midnight July 30.
