Heaven is for Real
Friday - Sunday  July 25 - 27
Starring Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly & Thomas Haden Church

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, Heaven is for Real brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth.....things he couldn't possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

The best-selling book was also a surprise hit at the Box Office, although it was met with its share of critics on both sides of the spriritual aisle.   Non-believers felt the film was heavy-handed and agenda-driven.  However, even certain religious organizations were critical of the child's somewhat non-Biblical description of his experience while in Heaven.  Still, it was the general movie going audience that embraced the film and the story, with highly positive word of mouth, which propelled Heaven is for Real $89 million at the Box Office, compared to its $12 million production budget.

The Other Woman
Friday - Sunday  August 1 - 3
Starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann & Kate Upton

After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he's been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S.O.B.

Cameron Diaz continues to demonstrate her Box Office prowess with this delightful 'revenge' comedy.  The film is also a shining example of 'what do critics know'?  Despite some poor reviews, audiences loved The Other Woman, whose U.S. Box Office take of $84 million was more than double its production budget.  It garnered an additional $110 million worldwide.

The chemistry between the three female leads is unmistakeable, as an unlikely friendship develops between their characters' desire to get back at the man who betrayed each of them.  In fact, during an interview, this is what Diaz had to say about her two co-stars, "I love Leslie and I love Kate so much.  I couldn't ask for a better team of brilliant women.  They are so talented and so funny, and fearless!  The two of them are completely fearless."

Make it a Girls' Night Out at The Strand or bring a date and remind him about the whole 'heck hath no fury' thing.  Everyone will have a great time!

The 70s v. The 80s - A RETROspective
Friday & Saturday ONLY!  Aug 8 & 9
Celebrate 100 Years of The Strand Theater All Year Long!

                                  
The 1970s/80s

Starring Pittsburgh's Own The Hewlett-Anderson Band!

Pete Hewlett and Scott Anderson return to The Strand with their top-shelf bandmates for a brand new concert experience!  The band first appeared to celebrate the music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney as part The Strand's exclusive Broadway Concert Series.  The following year, they presented The Beatles and Beyond, an incredible show that not only showcased music from The Fab Four, but also from the artists that influenced them as well as latter-day music icons who were inspired by the boys from Liverpool.



Now The Hewlett-Anderson Band has created an entirely new program, The 70s versus The 80s! a RETROspective.  The show compares and contrasts the musical styles and influences that two generations of music lovers grew up on.  From Album Oriented Rock, Psychedelic Love and Disco to Corporate Rock, Punk and Techno, the 70s and 80s couldn't have been more different.  But which was the better decade?  Which was your favorite?  Regardless, you'll love it all as The Hewlett-Anderson Band reflects on it all in this incredible,
original concert event!

Friday & Saturday Only!  August 8 & 9  8:00pm

Ghostbusters
Sunday ONLY!  August 10
Celebrate a Century of The Strand All Year Long!

                                
The 1980s

2014 represents TWO big anniversaries:  100 Years of The Strand and 30 years since the release of the most successful comedy in history up to that point.

Ghostbusters held the title of all-time Box Office Comedy champion until 1990's Home Alone.  It was the first film to merge comedy with hi-tech special effects, which was met with rabid endorsement by the movie-going audience.

Director Ivan Reitman's blockbuster starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harol Ramis as a trio of bumbling occult and parapsychology professors-turned-ghost hunters won both critical and audience praise, grossing nearly $240 million in its initial release.

Almost none of the scenes were filmed as scripted.  Almost all had at least one or two ad-libs. Most of Bill Murray's lines are ad-libs.  One of those lines, "Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!" was voted as the #68 of "The 100 Greatest Movie Lines" by Premiere in 2007.

William Atherton (Walter Peck) recalled that the shaving cream used for the melted "marshmallow" scene was still quite heavy, "We had the eighth-grade science test. I went under the bag, and I asked, 'How much shaving cream is in there?' And they said, 'Not that much.' So I said, 'Well, how much does it weigh?' 'It's about 75 pounds, but it's shaving cream.' You know the whole thing about 75 pounds of feathers and 75 pounds of lead? It's about the same thing. [Laughs.] So can we figure out what's going to happen with this? So they put some poor stunt guy underneath to show the sissy actor 'Okay, nothing's going to happen.' So they unleashed it, and it flattened him. So they took out half of the shaving cream, and I went in very happily and was slimed."

Muppets Most Wanted
Friday & Sunday  ONLY!  August 15 & 17
Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell & Tina Fey  

While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick.

As has become the cornerstone of the Muppets film franchise, this film is rife with celebrity cameos.  But this is Ray Liotta's second appearance in a Muppet movie. The other was Muppets from Space.  Ricky Gervais and Danny Trejo, who starred in this movie, ironically had cameos in The Muppets (2011) which were eventually cut.

At the end of the movie's opening song, We're Doing a Sequel, Walter suggests calling the movie Muppets Again Muppets... Again! was indeed the working title all through filming, but was changed last minute.  And when Bunsen sings his part in the opening number where he mentions this is actually their seventh sequel to The Muppet Movie (1979), 8-bit music is being played.

Of course, now that Disney owns the Muppet franchise, they maximize the crossover appeal with appearances by Disney Channel stars Ross Lynch, Debby Ryan, and Bridgit Mendler.

Tina Fey and Muppet performer Matt Vogel prepared with a dialect coach for their roles of Nadya and Constantine.

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”
