The Castro Theatre will transform itself into a saucy bathhouse in celebration of the remarkable career of Tony, Grammy, Emmy and Oscar winner Rita Moreno. Expect ushers in towels, a career highlight reel, a "tappy tribute" by Matthew Martin and a live onstage interview with Moreno. The entire evening will be capped by a rare screening of The Ritz, Terrence McNally's 1976 farce in which Moreno recreates her Tony-winning performance as the wacky and lovable performer Googie Gomez. Hosted by D'Arcy Drollinger, the evening will benefit Let's Kick ASS (AIDS Survivor Syndrome), a grassroots movement of long-term survivors. Learn More

Injected with new material and special design elements, Invisible Monsters Remix fulfills Chuck Palahniuk’s original vision for his 1999 novel, turning a daring satire on beauty and the fashion industry into an even more wildly unique reading experience. Palahniuk’s fashion-model protagonist has it all—boyfriend, career, loyal best friend—until an accident destroys her face, her ability to speak, and her self-esteem. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a bona-fide woman. Laced in are new chapters of memoir and further scenes with the book’s characters. Readers will jump between chapters, reread the book to understand the dissolve between fiction and fact, and decipher the playful book design, embarking on a ride they’ll never forget.
