A contemporary rock musical about the devastating toll that mental illness takes on a suburban family may seem odd ... but Next to Normal became one of Broadway's biggest and most compelling hits in recent years. This riveting show nabbed three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family's struggles with the effects of bipolar disorder. Each character's journey in this San Diego Musical Theatre production is further punctuated by powerful music scored by Tom Kitt (American Idiot). Featuring 30 original songs, including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," Next to Normal is, in the words of The New York Times, "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."

SO MUCH FUN! Will go again, just be warned it won't start on time - but it's certainly fun waiting.

This movie was horrible! I have NO idea how Elizabeth Taylor's name could have been associated with such trash! The movie had very little plot and the humor was disgusting! My very worst experience ever with Goldstar.

I LOVE the movies they offer. Love the crowd, love the atmosphere, love the theater. But the pre show drags (no pun intended) SO badly that it really negatively impacts the experience. Just start the raffle at 7, and GO. You can just feel the...continued

May 18, 2011 at 7:00pm: Suddenly, Last Summer — A special screening celebrating the career/life of gay icon, Elizabeth Taylor!
Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor each received Oscar nominations for Best Actress in this gripping adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play. Beautiful Catherine Holly (Taylor) is committed to a mental institution after witnessing the horrible death of her cousin Sebastian. Catherine’s aunt, Violet Venable (Hepburn), tries to influence Dr. Cukrowicz (Montgomery Clift), a young neurosurgeon, to surgically end Catherine’s haunting hallucinations. By utilizing injections of sodium pentothal, the doctor discovers that Catherine’s delusions are in fact true. He then must confront Violet about her own involvement in her son’s violent death. A smash hit upon its initial release, this film (also written by Gore Vidal) is a fascinating, grandly acted film that is worth seeing for the talent of all involved – especially Miss Taylor.

Based on the best-selling trashy novel by Jacqueline Susann. Anne Welles ( buxom Barbara Parkins), a bright, brash young New England college grad leaves her Peyton Place-ish small town and heads for Broadway, where she hopes to find an exciting job and sophisticated men. During her misadventures in Manhattan and, later, Hollywood, she shares experiences with two other young hopefuls: Jennifer North (gorgeous Sharon Tate), a statuesque, Monroe-ish actress who wants to be accepted as a human being, but is regarded as a sex object by all the men she meets, and Neely O’Hara (screeching-mimi Patty Duke), a talented young actress who’s accused of using devious means by a great older star (slumming Susan Hayward) to reach the top, pulling an “All About Eve”-type deception in order to steal a good role away from her. Oscar-nominated for Best Song – sung by Dionne Warwick. With Paul Burke & Lee Grant.
Running Time: 123 minutes Rating: PG-13

What better way to kick off San Diego Pride than with a rare screening of John Water’s ultra camp classic! Dave Davenport (Divine) is an overweight, angry teenager who loathes school along with her two friends. It’s nearly Christmas and all she wants is cha-cha heels. When she doesn’t get them for Christmas, she abandons her conventional suburban house and makes love with a greasy guy named Earl. She later gives birth to a daughter she names Taffy (Mink Stole), who she doesn’t show her any respect. All Dawn does is commit crimes and get her hair done at a salon run by a married couple named the Dashers (David Lochary & Mary Vivian Pearce) who believe in crime and beauty. They have Dawn become a crime model while Taffy and next-door neighbor Ida Nelson (Edith Massey) try to stop her. If you’ve never seen an early John Waters film (considered one of his best by fans) with an audience, then you are in for a memorable film experience.
