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

Inside Job, Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary (Feature)
Charles Ferguson, Documentary Filmmaker, Inside Job and No End in Sight
Adam Lashinsky, Senior Editor at Large, Fortune magazine - Moderator
Could the global economic meltdown of the last few years have been prevented? Academy award-nominated filmmaker Ferguson believes that the crisis was no accident. His latest documentary, Inside Job, makes the powerful case that an out-of-control finance industry took advantage of a deregulated atmosphere and purposely sought to get rich at the expense of others.
Through extensive interviews with financial insiders and government officials, Ferguson crossed the globe to find proof that the financial industry intentionally engaged in unethical behavior. His gripping account of the global recession is sure to evoke feelings of disgust, anger, and concern that this all may happen again unless our regulatory system is changed. Ferguson’s previous film, No End in Sight, was nominated for an Oscar. Inside Job is already being touted as an early favorite to win this year’s award for Best Documentary (Feature).
