The Billie Holiday Project, led by Stella Heath, celebrates the music of Lady Day. Shrouded in mystery, as she was draped in furs, Billie was quintessentially multi-faceted, possessing the sensitivity and ability to make the songs she sang as personal as if she was singing them softly in your own very ear. Featuring some of the Bay Area’s finest Jazz musicians, The Billie Holiday Project evokes the electric and intimate feeling of experiencing Lady Day live in a 1930s Jazz Club.

Sponsored by Tomkins Tax Consultants

This 1979 legal drama stars Al Pacino who plays a scruffy rebel, strong but vulnerable, low-key but easily ignited, fighting in a slick society for simple rights and a fair shake. His high voltage performance as a Baltimore lawyer earned him a Best Actor nomination, with a nomination also going to Valerie Curtain and Barry Levinson for best screenplay. The film stands out for its strong direction, bright performances, stinging script, ace camera work and a jaunty music score.

The Big Sleep

Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Shows at 1:00 and 6:00 pm     
        Doors open 30 mins prior
Sponsored by Michael Lorenzini 

This 1946 film noir mystery stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogey plays hardboiled L.A. private eye, Philip Marlowe, who follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues and the spoiled rich. Directed by Howard Hawks; screenplay by William Faulkner and Raymond Chandler.

Reviewer Tim Robey of the Daily Telegraph (UK) says “The Big Sleep is the best scripted, best directed, best acted and least comprehensible film noir ever made.” While the plot is a bundle of confusion, the film lives on as a classic with palpable onscreen chemistry between Bogey and Bacall, sinister views of 1940s Los Angeles, and an intelligent, witty script.

Rated PG.   Run time 1 hour 56 minutes.
