Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
19 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+

One of the world's most preeminent jazz innovators, trombonist and sea shellist, Steve Torre has consistently won both the Readers' and Critics' polls in JazzTimes, Downbeat, and Jazziz for best trombone and for best miscellaneous instrumentalist (shells).

Roy Elldridge (1911 - 1989) aka "Little Jazz", was born and reared in Pittsburgh, and is considered one of the greatest trumpet players in jazz history. His range and rhythmic skill made him perhaps the finest trumpeter of the swing era of the 1930's. His sophisticated use of harmony resulted in him sometimes being seen as the link between Louis Armstrong-era swing music and Dizzy Gillespie-era bebop.

The band will conduct a free Jazz Workshop for Youth at the theater, 2 -3 PM. For more information call 412-322-0292.
