Where In The Hell Is The Lavender House. Even before the internet existed, Longmont Potion Castle was harassing the world with internet-style humor. Who is Longmont Potion Castle? Well that's a damn good question. This anonymous artist and comedian is responsible for some of the most hilarious and outlandish prank calls ever recorded. His surreal prank calls have shown up in the Colorado and the Los Angeles areas since 1987. And since starting, he's released over a dozen albums of his wild calls, all while remaining unknown. This crowd-funded documentary attempts to unravel the mystery. 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress Street. $15. All ages.
