At The Dietrich

Hildy Morgan

Wow! I have so much to tell you! So much is happening! First of all, this coming Monday the Fassett goes dark and the 3-D is installed! Can you believe it??? It’s actually happening! So we’ll be back to three screens for Monday through Thursday. And we’ll be all set for the kiddie flick Legend of the Guardians on the 24th of September in 3-D!!! Wow!   In fact, all the equipment is here now, including the 3-D glasses which have a real sci-fi look to them when worn. We all had to take turns trying them on, of course, and came to the conclusion that it might not be our best look. Nevertheless, it’s soooo cool having them sitting in big boxes right here.  

     Okay, since the Fassett will be dark for four days we have a weekend where we can be a little experimental because the films won’t be with us for the usual stretch. Therefore I am playing Gasland and Gas Odyssey, splitting them on the screen, (actually they’ll be in the Evans) so that everyone can see the film of their choice, pro or con. And I know some folks will think it unfair that the other side of the argument (whatever that may be) will be presented when only their side ought to be. But it was the fairest way I could think of to do this. Because although there are some folks really mad at the gas companies, many, many more are under contract to have their land explored and they don’t have hostile feelings. 
     So, in an attempt to be as impartial as I can be and still serve all the people who come to the Dietrich, I am going to show both films. And I recommend that if you want to be fair, see both. The truth most likely lies somewhere in between with more caution needed on the side of the gas companies and a little less hysteria on the side of those who want to turn back the clock.
     Now you will notice that I booked the films. No one else on staff books the movies. I am solely responsible for that, so if you have a problem with either film being shown you can call or email me, but don’t be yelling at the rest of the staff. They have nothing to do with it. So save up and yell at me. I’m a tough old broad. I can take it.
     As you have probably guessed, this isn’t the best time for movies. So once again we are opening a horror flick (oy), Resident Evil, keeping the R rated Going the Distance and going another week with The Expendables. (By the way, if you haven’t seen Sylvestor Stallone and the guys then you are missing one of the fun movies of the year. It’s not for the kiddies, but it will make you laugh all the way through. Of course there is enough gunfire to deafen an army, but really, it’s just silly good fun.) 
     And for the kidlets, we have two matinee showings of Nanny McFee. It’s clever and fun for the kids and the only kiddie flick in sight until Legend of the Guardians and then after that there’s a long dry spell on movies for the wee ones until late fall and early winter. Sigh. I wish someone in Hollywood would ask those of us who live in small towns how we feel about months going by with no films we can take our kids to. Oh well, as I say many a day…we don’t make ‘em, we just show ‘em.
     Okay, now listen up as my Daddy would have said. We are still over two weeks out from festival, brochures went out in the mail today, and we have less than a hundred seats left for gala night. So if you want to be part of the best movie and food event ever (!) then make that call to 996-1500 and reserve your seat today. And by reserve, I really mean that this year, because you can choose your seat. Of course, the sooner you call, the more likely you can sit just where you’d like to. 
     So, have a great weekend. Come to see the gas docs or a little horror or a raunchy romance or a funny old guys movie. And have some popcorn. We’d love to see you!
     See you at the Dietrich.

Live at The Dietrich

Erica Rogler

Abracadabra! Join us at the Dietrich for a magic show next Saturday, September 18th at 11:00 a.m. See Jeremy the Illusionist perform amazing and comical tricks and illusions. A few volunteers from the audience will be asked to join Jeremy on stage to help out with a few acts. Last time Jeremy performed at the Dietrich, over 180 children and adults fill the audience. It was a tremendous performance.   You will not want to miss this morning of fun entertainment. Plus, admission is free! Tickets can be reserved by calling us at 570-996-1500, and they will be available at the door while supplies.
Switching from magic to movies, the following weekend the Dietrich’s 8th Annual Fall Film Festival will be in full gear. We will kick the festival off with a fabulous evening of food, film, wine and great company during the Opening Night Gala on Friday, September 24. Both Mao’s Last Dancer and Get Low look like amazing movies, but then again, I think there isn’t one movie I wouldn’t want to see out this fall’s festival selection. Thank Hildy when you see her for such fine picks. Between seeing the films Cyrus, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, The Girl Who Played with Fire, I Am Love, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, The Kids Are All Right, Please Give, Mao’s Last Dancer and Get Low, I think I will be spending a lot of my free time at the Dietrich between September 24 and October 7. Check out our website  to plan your schedule of festival films you don’t want to miss. Reservations are only required for the opening night. 
Now if you are interested in Gala night tickets, I recommend making your reservations as soon as you can. Tickets are going extremely quickly. Call us at 570-996-1500 to reserve, and remember all proceeds from the evening will help support cultural programming for children at the Dietrich. 
For instance, in October, the theater will host the class series “Discovering Folk Art” based on the Everhart Museum’s fall exhibit For Every Season. Each Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., an Everhart Museum Educator will show students ages five to twelve years old how to use story, movement and visual arts to learn and create on the following themed topics: Folk Tale Puppet Theatre, Folk Art Flowers, Creative Calligraphy Animals and Pattern Building Play. Then on Saturday, October 30th, students and their families will be able to join us on a bus trip to the Everhart Museum in Scranton to view the exhibit For Every Season and the museum’s other exhibits. I am especially excited that we will receive a guided activity tour of the museum, which means there will be activities to participate in at every section of the museum we visit. Admission to the classes and bus trip are free. Call us at (570)-996-1500 to sign up.
We also have some amazing classes and workshops coming up for adults to take part in. On Monday, September 20th, Jane Jones will be teaching Turkish Bead Crochet at the Dietrich from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. So come out and learn how to make a beautiful bracelet.
For those of you who are more interested in the theatre, Jennifer Jenkins, Dietrich Theater Director of Theatre Arts, will be presenting an Audition Workshop on Thursdays, September 30 through October 28 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. In this series, you will learn the best way to present yourself at an audition, how to turn a cold reading into a great scene, how to find clues in the script and the basics of taking direction.  
We also will be hosting a workshop with local artist Ivana Pavelka called Create Your Own Shadow Box. On Thursdays, September 23 to October 28 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., participants will construct a shadow box from scratch using bookbinding materials. These boxes are great for housing small mementos or collections. Call us at 570-996-1500 for more information or to register.
