Led by Grammy Award-winning arranger and musician Matt Catingub, the Glendale Pops takes the stage for an evening of jazz-rock fusion. The fun and creative program will put a distinctive Pops spin on songs by Blood Sweat & Tears, Steely Dan and Chicago, and will have you humming and tapping your toes along with the talented orchestra as they play renditions of these recognizable tunes. The Glendale Pops Orchestra has quickly become a prized addition to Southern California music and celebrates their third anniversary in 2014. Learn More

A wonderful event from the beautifully restored print, live keyboard accompaniment, some of Pickford's historic artifacts, etc. Mention was made of Bob Mitchell who was scheduled to play keyboards at this event and was even listed in the printed program, but had passed away on July 4 at the age of 96.
In association with the Library of Congress, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and Glendale Arts, AFS presents a screening of the restored silent classic, Sparrows, Mary Pickford’s 1926 dramatic story of abused orphans.
The 35mm print will be accompanied by a live organ performance.
Preceding the feature will be They Will Elope and The Trick That Failed, two of the fifty-two films Mary Pickford made in 1909, her first year in the industry. This will be the first Los Angeles screening of these newly restored prints by the Library of Congress.
Displayed in the lobby will be artifacts from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County’s extensive motion picture collection including Mary Pickford’s curls; the paste jewel encrusted headdress and prop curling iron from Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall (1924), and an exhibitor’s herald from Ramona (1909).
