When Rolling Stone editor and longtime friend Jason Fine drops by the L.A. home of songwriter, producer and Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, Fine suggests they cruise around the city he knows so well to visit old haunts and give Brian the opportunity to reflect on his life and music. They first head to Paradise Cove – photo session site for the Beach Boys’ first LP – then to Hollywood, Malibu, and the stomping grounds of hometown Hawthorne. Spontaneously “spinning” Mp3s of his favorite cuts along the way, Brian delves into his childhood, his contentious relationship with dad Murry, the nine-year “prison sentence” under the “guidance” of Dr. Landy, his struggles with depression and mental illness, his love for brothers Dennis and Carl, and the many recording sessions. Weighing in are admirers and those close to him, including Al Jardine, Don Was, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Linda Perry. Punctuated with memorable concert, studio and interview footage and graced by the new song “Right Where I Belong,” recorded specifically for this film, this entertaining, informative, at times heart-tugging road trip provides both a first-hand, intimate look into Wilson’s storied life and further inspiration to anyone who has been touched by his music.

Kurt Vonnegut


12/1 – 6:15pm

12/2 – 8:30pm

Almost eight years after his death, KURT VONNEGUT  remains one of the most popular literary figures of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Readers from one generation to the next, the world over, continue to find their lives transformed by his comic and cosmic insights, on display in such bestselling books as Cat’s Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions, Mother Night, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, and on and on. Amazingly, all of Vonnegut’s works remain in print, and his popularity shows no sign of waning. Yet to-date, there has been no definitive film documentary covering his extraordinary life and work.ROBERT WEIDE has been trying to correct that oversight for 33 years. In 2015, with your help, it will finally happen.

David Kaye’s  ‘How The Eggnog Ruined Christmas’ (Treasured tales of yuletide family dysfunction)  is testament that Christmas is not always decked with boughs of holly and as cheery as a Norman Rockwell painting.  The show is a salute to the yinzer yuletide spirit and includes memories of a hard drinking, cigarette smoking, steel mill working Polish father, a quick witted, hot headed HoJo’s waitress mother, and the ensuing insanity of the Christmas holiday.

Imagine a musical mash up of Charles Dickens “The Christmas Carol” and John O’Brien’s “Leaving Las Vegas” set in Pittsburgh and performing it live on stage.

Filled with hair raising mid-20th century stories of a Yinzer family dystopia, Kaye unwraps the holiday with classic Christmas song parodies and tales of Yuletide misfortune.   David Kaye lampoons this hallowed holiday in a comedic Christmas assault that includes visits from “gifts” of Christmas past as he exposes painfully hilarious presents found under the Christmas tree.
