The Hollywood Theater in Dormont says
While the majority of small, independent single screen theaters around the country have sadly closed, the Hollywood Theater is going strong thanks to fans and supporters from around the city and region. Join us on Saturday, May 14, 2016 as we celebrate the Hollywood's 90th Birthday, and five years since reopening as a nonprofit!

Our special guest for the evening is artist, Pittsburgh Employee, and cyclist David Conrad, perhaps best known for his starring role on the television program Ghost Whisperer alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt. As Guest Curator for the event, Conrad selected to screen the new digital restoration of the classic film noir The Third Man (1949) starring Orson Welles. Conrad explained: "As an actor I simply couldn’t understand how people, anyone, could watch any film again and again. And then I saw The Third Man. It never gets old. It’s perfect."

Tom Roberts and Friends will perform live music before and after the film. Roberts, an early jazz musician and scholar, played piano for jazz and blues legend Leon Redbone for years - who was known to open each show with the Theme from The Third Man by Anton Karas (we're betting you'll hear it).

In addition, there will be tasty food by Eliza's Oven and Jose and Tony's; beer, wine and soda; a raffle to benefit the Friends of the Hollywood Theater with great prizes such as Penguins and concert tickets; and much more.

Doors open at 7:00pm with live music. Introduction by David Conrad at 8:00pm, with the film to follow. Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Member tickets are $15. Tickets on sale now at www.showclix.com/event/birthday-party-david-conrad.
