On Arctic Ground: Exploring the Furthest Reaches of Wild Alaska

Tuesday, October 30th @ 7:00 PM @ Camelot Theatres
Purchase tickets at Camelot Box Office or online with ShowClix

In the far northwest corner of Alaska lies “the Reserve,” a 23-million acre stretch of uninterrupted wilderness marked by pristine rivers, massive bluffs, and expansive stretches of open tundra. Home to America’s largest caribou herd, grizzly bears, birds, and the world’s largest Arctic dinosaur bone bed, the Alaska National Petroleum Reserve is the largest single unit of public lands in the United States — an exquisite place with an unfortunate name that few people will ever have the opportunity to visit.

On Tuesday, October 30, 2012, The Palm Springs Cultural Center invites everyone to experience this amazing and pristine part of our country’s public lands through a very special multimedia presentation of On Arctic Ground: Exploring the Furthest Reaches of Wild Alaska. The program, which will be presented by Author and Adventurer Debbie S. Miller, will take place at the Camelot Theatres at 7pm, and will be followed by a book signing with the author.

Blues for Willadean is the film adaptation of Del Shores’ 2003 play “The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife.” It explores the hidden emotions, shame, and secrecy of battered women, while also offering hope, healing and truth. A delicate blend of frightened humor and pain, the three act play delves right into the heart of abuse. From the hysterical highs of side-splitting comedy Shores is known for, to the heart-rending depths of drama at its most human, the story sweeps the emotional spectrum. Shores draws the audience into the fire, allowing them to laugh one minute and cry the next as they experience the emotions revealed from all sides – the abuser, the abused, and the powerless bystander.

Writer, director, and actor Martin Papazian’s debut film LEAST AMONG SAINTS movingly depicts a man’s hard-fought journey towards reconciling with his better self. Returning home to a broken marriage and an uncertain future, veteran Anthony Hayward (Papazian) believes there is no hope for himself. Yet when a troubled ten year-old neighbor, Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu), calls out for help, Anthony cannot turn away. To the dismay of the boy’s social worker (Laura San Giacomo), Anthony sets out on a fool’s quest to help this heartbroken and hard-to-reach child find his long-lost father. In the midst of this new mission–the first that seems to matter since his return–Anthony begins to come to grips with both the costs of war and the universal power of human connection. Papazian finds both the gravity and the grace in ordinary, flawed characters pushed to extraordinary acts of compassion and decency. [Read more...]

Searching for Sugar Man tells the incredible true story of Rodriguez, the greatest ’70s rock icon who never was. Discovered in a Detroit bar in the late ’60s by two celebrated producers struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics, they recorded an album which they believed would secure his reputation as the greatest recording artist of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, he became a phenomenon. The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation leads them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez. — (C) Sony Pictures Classics

Matthew Bourne’s “SWAN LAKE” at Camelot Theatres (2D)

Dates: October 9th at 2:30 PM and October 11th @ 7:30 PM

When it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant re–interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Now you can watch this modern day classic for the first time in stunning digital cinema, accompanied by state of the art surround sound.

An iconic production, perhaps best–known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, it was filmed at Sadler’s Wells, London in 2011. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity, filming for Digital Cinema creates an illusion of space around the dancers, drawing you onto the stage and bringing a dramatic realism to the story.

With more than 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys and an Olivier, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the stage, becoming the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway.
