Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
13 Apr 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members

BIG LOVE by Charles Mee
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
13 Apr 2008
America’s most innovative playwright re-imagines the western world’s oldest play in Big Love, a chaotic juxtaposition of poetry, dance, music, and violence inspired by Aeschylus’ The Suppliant Maidens. Fifty reluctant brides seek refuge in Italy from their fifty insistent suitors. What’s a girl to do when her would-be spouse won’t take no for an answer? Kill him. Brutally. Charles Mee’s acclaimed play plunges us into a rollercoaster war of the sexes and rhapsodizes sisterhood, independence, and rare true love.
This production contains violence, profanity, and some nudity.
