MUPPET MOVIE SING ALONG

Sat June 18 & Sun June 19 @ 6:00

Come find your rainbow connection with the original 1979 movie! Sing along with Gonzo, Rowlf, Fozzie, Piggy, Kermit, and the rest of the gang as they head off to meet the lovers and dreamers in Hollywood! Along the way there are a cavalcade of celebrity cameos (Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, Orson Welles), and Paul Williams’ glorious tunes, including the classics "Rainbow Connection", "Movin Right Along" and "I’m Going to Go Back There Someday." So, grab a tambourine and embark on a cross-country trip that shows us just how the Muppets came to be. We’ll have all the lyrics and all your favorite quotable lines subtitled karaoke-style. Plus a sock puppet makin’ station at the door so you can make your own new best friend to join in on the fun.

MEET THE FEEBLES

Fri June 17 @ 9:30*

Pretty much any sick, disgusting, or perverted thing you can think up has already been done in MEET THE FEEBLES. And by animal puppets, no less. Academy Award winning director Peter Jackson’s second feature film is only for those strong of stomach and warped of humor. In a psycho-perverted alternate reality Muppet world, Heidi The Hippo, star of the "Meet The Feebles Variety Hour" discovers her husband Bletch is cheating on her. The assorted co-stars must contend with their own problems, including drug abuse, extortion, robbery, crime, nasty sex, and sodomy (which makes for a great musical number, by the way), before the film ends in a gorey bloodbath.

MY HEART IS AN IDIOT
with FOUND Magazine’s Davy Rothbart in person!

A romantic documentary, MY HEART IS AN IDIOT captures the road-tripping lifestyle of Davy Rothbart (FOUND Magazine, This American Life) as he looks for love in all the right places, and in all the wrong ways. Climb in the van with Davy as he tours North America promoting his iconic magazine, a printed collection of discarded notes and photographs. Along the way, he seeks advice on his tortured love life from people he meets (Zooey Deschanel, Ira Glass, Newt Gingrich, Davy’s mom, and others), and attempts to follow that advice, with comic and surprising results. Director David Meiklejohn and Davy Rothbart will be here in person to provide a Q&A with the film.

F**K FATHER’S DAY!
Sun June 19 @ 8:00

Just because it’s Father’s Day doesn’t mean every dad deserves a tie. Tonight, the creator’s of last year’s popular live event I’LL SHOW YOU A STORY, return for an anti-Father’s Day reading that features writers Derek Erdman, Cienna Madrid and Brian McGuigan. They will to tell you about fathers who didn’t care, left families behind, or were never even seen. If you have a bad dad, then this is what you should be doing for Father’s Day instead of kissing his ass. If you have a good dad, show him your love by laughing along with the pain of these bastards and unfortunates – then give him a great big hug for not being one of the bad dads.

Mon Jun 20 , Tues Jun 21, Weds Jun 22 @ 9:30*

"I’ve had it up to my ass with sedate."

Breaking all rules and looking good while doing it, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis cemented themselves in film history as THELMA & LOUISE. With an Oscar winning script by Callie Khouri and masterful direction by Ridley Scott, the girls find themselves on the run from their past and the law. The Git It Girls have to fight off loneliness, dust bowls and Brad Pitt as they speed across the country to their final destination. This year marks the 20th anniversary of THELMA & LOUISE and its effect is still just as poignant and breathtaking.

"It’s Khaki wishes and cookie dreams!"

Learn how to sell cookies, repair damaged relationships, and deal with the general pains of being rich, aimless, and bathed in California sunshine as local musican/designer Corianton Hale presents the Shelley Long queer classic TROOP BEVERLY HILLS. Filled with a billion raunchy PG-13 jokes and quotable one liners, this is the one that set the standard for Girl Scout movies. Outrageous costumes, none-too-subtle lesbian overtones, Pia Zadora (!!) and Craig T. Nelson doing shirtless Tai Chi all make this the perfect movie to showcase during Gay Pride week. Who knows…you might just find yourself doing The Freddy!
