We are happy to annouce that we’ve got a new concert on the schedule: Point Entertainment presents Jorma Kaukonen with very special guest Loudon Wainwright III, Sep 14 at 8PM. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Apr 20 at 10AM and prices range from $29.50-$40.00. Check out this recent A.V. Club article in which Wainwright muses about some of his songs.

The Funny Philly Guys show (Apr 28) has sold out! However, we will be releasing rear balcony seats tomorrow at noon. Please note that these seats have limited leg room. Tickets prices will be $25, reserved seating, (prices do not include the $2 per ticket Restoration Fee or the $1.50 per ticket Service Fee). The show will open with former Senator Arlen Specter doing stand up – don’t miss it!

Tomorrow, our new feature film is Foreign Language Oscar nominee In Darkness. Note that Friday’s starting time will be at 7PM. If you join us Tues, Apr 24, there will be an after-film discussion in the auditorium immediately following the film with David Lee Preston, award-winning journalist, Delaware native and son of Halina Wind, survivor of the Lvov sewers (the movie’s subject). Tonight is your last chance to see Salmon Fishing in the Yemen at 7:30.

Our kids’ film Saturday at 2PM is The Princess Bride, directed by Rob Reiner. Our classic film Sunday is the original 1962 The Miracle Worker, directed by the great Arthur Penn and starring Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke.

Our documentary series continues its food theme this Sunday with The Garden at 4:30. It tells the story of a lush,14-acre community garden rising from the ashes of the L.A. riots, who’s future is now threatened by bulldozers.

Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the theatre!
