Letter From the Executive Director
It’s that time of the year where the screen lights up with some of the best movies of the year. But hey, we already show some of the best movies year round, right? Our new program is bursting with relevance, diversity, independence, and even a bit of Hollywood glitz! Surely there is something for everyone and every taste. The Oscar season would not be complete without our annual Oscar and Red Carpet party! Don’t miss your chance to take a photo with a REAL OSCAR and laugh with our host and legendary Olympia storyteller, the always entertaining, the inimitable, Elizabeth Lord!
We are very excited to welcome back to the theater Leslie Shore, PhD. Ms. Shore is a lecturer and tv journalist who will be leading poignant, post screening Q&A’s on the topics highlighted in the films Spotlight, and Only Yesterday. For you music lovers, join us on The Backstage for an intimate performance by Americana bluegrass singers Jolie Holland and Samantha Parton! This will be the first time in many years that these founding members of The Be Good Tanyas have performed together! Their dreamy voices and songs will most certainly enchant you.
Enjoy the new program and we’ll see you at the theater,
