Monty Python & The Holy Grail
Friday & Saturday Only!  August 29 & 30
YOU Picked the Movie!

House Manager, Technical Director, Strand Volunteer and all-around Movie Aficionado Steven Lunney put together a list of Blockbuster, Classic and Cult Films. Members fo The Strand's Facebook Open Group picked thier favorite: Monty Python & the Holy Grail

But even though this particular voting contest is done, you are still welcome to join the Open Group.  Just Click Here to join.  We may run a similar promotion at a later time, and we always keep our Facebook friends up to date on the latest programs and activities happening at The Strand!

Monty Python & The Holy Grail is the Pythons' manic take on the Arthurian legend.  King Arthur along with his Knights of the Round Table (Sir Bevedere The Intelligent, Sir Lancelot The Brave, Sir Galahad The Pure, Sir Robin The Not-Quite-So-Brave as Sir Lancelot, and the aptly named, Sir Not Appearing in this Film), are tasked with seeking the Holy Grail.  But their quest is marred by many obstacles, most of which being of a silly nature.

Funds earned by Pink Floyd's album The Dark Side of the Moon went towards funding The Holy Grail. The band were such fans of the show they would halt recording sessions just to watch Monty Python's Flying Circus. 

Despite this famous fandom investment, the movie was produced on a shoestring budget.  The famous depiction of galloping horses by using coconut shells (a traditional radio-show sound effect) came about from the purely practical reason that the production simply couldn't afford real horses.

Mrs. Doubtfire
Sunday Only!  August 31
Starring Robin Williams, Sally Field & Pierce Brosnan

On August 11, the world lost one of its greatest one of its greatest treasures in Robin Williams.  In honor of his incredible legacy, The Strand is running one his most cherished films, Mrs Doubtfire. 

At the time of his passing, his wife, Susan Schneider released a statement that included this comment, "As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions". 

Considered to be one of Williams' most iconic roles, Mrs Doubtfire is the story of an actor who disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his ex-wife.

Known for his trademark spontaneity of improvisation, Williams was given free range by director Chris Columbus to do what he needed. However, his improvisation occasionally sparked numerous references to other works that became legal headaches for movie studios. The scene where Williams' character Daniel speaks with his wife and refers to her clothes as "this lovely Dances with Wolves motif", required legal clearance for the studio to put it in the film.

Columbus would use two or three cameras at a time, when shooting Williams' scenes, uncertain of what the famously improvisational actor would come up with. Columbus viewed shooting these scenes as if he were making a documentary film.

According to one biography, Williams decided to test out the believability of his Mrs. Doubtfire character during filming by going, as Mrs. Doubtfire, into an adult bookstore and making a purchase. He was able to do so without being recognized.

Jurassic Park
Friday & Saturday ONLY!  September 5 & 6
Celebrate a Century of The Strand All Year Long!

                                
The 1990s

During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.

Jurassic Park opened on Friday, June 11, 1993, and broke box office records its first weekend, with $47 million. Screenplay co-writer, David Koepp remembers the day it opened: "I was in New York and I walked to the Ziegfeld [Theatre] to see how it was doing. The guy comes out and announces to the big line, 'Ladies and gentlemen, the 7 o'clock show of Jurassic Park is sold out.' And people go, 'Oooh.' And he goes, 'Also the 10 o'clock show is sold out.' And they went, 'Ooooooh.' 'And also Saturday night's 7 and 10 o'clock shows are also sold out.' And I was like, 'I'm not an expert, but I think this is very good.'"

The mechanical T-rex in this film was no 'Bruce the shark' which famously broke down during the filming of Spielberg's JAWS, but did occasionally malfunction, due to the rain. Producer Kathleen Kennedy recalls, "The T-rex went into the heebie-jeebies sometimes; scared the crap out of us. We'd be, like, eating lunch, and all of a sudden a T-rex would come alive. At first we didn't know what was happening, and then we realized it was the rain. You'd hear people start screaming."  And when the T-Rex comes through the glass roof of the Explorer in the first attack, the glass was not meant to break, producing the noticeably genuine screams from the children.

God's Not Dead
Sunday  ONLY!  September 7
Starring Shane Harper, Kevin Sorbo & Dean Cain

College freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade.

As other students in the class begin scribbling the words "God Is Dead" on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future.

God's Not Dead faced steep criticism for its seemingly one-sided portrayal of a debate that has gone on for centuries........does God truly exist?  The film was widely panned by critics and recieved one of the lowest ratings possible on the web site, Rotten Tomatoes.

Despite the backlash, the film was another surprise hit of the summer with regard to spiritual film releases, the first being Heaven is for RealGod's Not Dead garnered nearly $61 million at the Box Office, compared to its $2 million production budget.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Friday - Sunday  September 12 - 14
Starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson & Scarlett Johansson

Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and battles a new threat from old history: the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier.  He also discovers that the world defense organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D has been infiltrated by another group long thought to have been destroyed.

Unlike the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Winter Soldier minimizes the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie who plays Cap's new partner, The Falcon, elaborated: "The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live action, which is a dying art form...If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That's why the movie looks so great."

What may be a surprising use of CGI was in the presentation of Hayley Atwell as the aged former flame of Steve Rogers.  Atwell was aged using computer-generated imagery for her appearance as an elderly Peggy Carter.  Anthony Russo commented that "all the old people have looked the same in movies since the 80s when you go down the make-up route." Joe Russo said: "We changed her face and her muscle structure and all of those things that change when you age".

Terry Lee Goffee Johnny Cash Tribute
Saturday Only!  October 18
Terry & His Band Return with TWO Distinct Shows!

Terry Lee Goffee has done such an amazing job of recreating the look, sound and mannerisms of the legendary 'Man In Black' that the developers of Guitar Hero hired him to help them create their 'Cash' character in the game!

Last year, Terry Lee played to two packed houses at The Strand, and he's happy to return, but this time with two different and distinct Johnny Cash Tribute shows!

The 2pm matinee - Terry Lee's TRAIN TO GLORY performance will showcase Cash's GOSPEL ROOTSA larger than life figure with larger than life faults, Johnny Cash was also a man of tremendous faith. While his musical legacy is extensive, few music fans are aware of the catalog of gospel music left to us by this American music legend. “Train to Glory” pays tribute to the inspirational songs of Johnny Cash.

The 8pm show
will be the traditional TRAIN OF LOVE performance that Terry Lee and his band have become so well-known for!  Like a well-trained actor, Terry Lee tells the Johnny Cash story from the 1st person perspective, becoming the man that he idolized all his life.  Expect to hear such Cash classics as A Boy Named Sue, Sunday Morning Coming Down, I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire & many more!

Terry's amazing tribute show not only caught the attention of the Guitar Hero developers, but members of Johnny Cash's family as well.  Brother Tommy Cash stated, "My Brother would be proud". Joanne Cash Yates commented, "It's a wonderful show, I would recommend it to anyone.  You don’t impersonate my brother, you pay tribute to him with honor”

Barbra & Frank: The Concert That Never Was
Saturday Only!  November 8
Starring Sebastion Anzaldo & Sharon Owens

It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage…until now! Two great artists paying tribute to their characters, singing the most memorable music and songs ever written.  They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it’s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage banter have been friendly or a bit snippy?

Recently, Sharon Owens was crowned the winner of the hit TV show on Fox called Performing As… Her national success has created a whirlwind of Barbra fans waiting to see Sharon’s famous tribute. Since her TV success, she has been seen on Access Hollywood, Extra, Entertainment Tonight and even paid a visit to the Family Feud.  She has been performing her “Tribute to Barbra Streisand” to critical acclaim nationwide in major showrooms, for corporate events and as a Headliner in Las Vegas.

Sebastian Anzaldo is fast becoming one of the top “Sinatra” interpreters in the country. In just a few short years, he has honed his act to perfecting the essence of the musical icon. With the voice, looks and mannerisms of ‘Ol Blue Eyes, Sebastian has wowed audiences from coast to coast.  As word got out that there was a new ‘Chairman’ in town, he got a call to star in ‘The Tribute To The Rat Pack’ currently running at The Greek Isle in Vegas. This in turn led to his current show – headlining with Sharon Owens as Barbra Streisand in the wonderful “Barbra & Frank, The Concert That Never Was…” at the Westin Causarina Hotel and Casino”.

Now, these two incredible talents have hit the road and The Strand is pleased and proud to be the exclusive venue for their Pittsburgh Metro stop.  You won't find this show downtown or anywhere else within 90 miles of Zelienople!  Do not miss this one!
