Dir: Daisy von Scherler Mayer / 1995 / US / 94 min
“’90s indie queen Parker Posey playing a club kid (with an absolutely killer wardrobe, natch) who becomes a librarian? What’s not to love! This movie is one of the few things that makes me actually feel good about having an advanced degree in library science, which is really saying something.” – Abbey Bender

Patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers are no longer required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. The threat of covid, seasonal flu, and respiratory viruses are still out there. OFS will continue to provide masks (while supplies last – we have tons), surface and hand sanitizer, and regular air filtration system maintenance. We encourage mask-wearing at concerts and indoor gatherings and keep snacking and drinking in seating areas only.
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home to avoid spreading COVID-19 to others. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you call out for your volunteer, stay at home, and come back when you feel better to minimize the spread and to help keep others at the theater healthy and keep our operations going.
