Big Hero 6
Friday - Sunday, March 6 - 8
From the Creators of Frozen & Wreck It Ralph

 

WINNER!  Academy Award for Best Animated Feature!

 

From the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called "Big Hero 6."

 

It is said that the movie is set in an alternate future in which, after the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco was rebuilt by Japanese immigrants using techniques that allow movement and flexibility in a seismic event. After the city was finished being rebuilt, it was renamed San Fransokyo due to it being a city with Japanese and American architecture combined.

 

Although it is based on a Marvel comic of the same name, there are lots of changes to the names, the setting, the ethnicities of characters, the back stories, and several plot points.

  

While this is the first animated Marvel film to be released theatrically via Walt Disney Animation Studios. it does not share the same universe as the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe, nor is is it branded as a Marvel property from Marvel Studios.  Still, there is a tip of the hat to Stan Lee, Marvel's Chairman Emeritus.  Just like in most of the live action films, Stan has a cameo of sorts.  In Fred's mansion, a portrait of Stan can be seen as Fred's dad (and in a post-credits scene).

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
Friday - Sunday,  March 13 - 15
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson & Woody Harrelson

The mega-blockbuster series shows no signs of losing steam with this latest installment, which overtook Guardians of the Galaxy for the top  grossing film of 2014. Its predecessor The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) was the highest grossing film of 2013 in North America, making Catching Fire and Mockingjay Part 1 only the second film series to top the domestic box office in consecutive years. The first series to do so was Going My Way (1944) and The Bells of St. Mary's (1945)

With the Games destroyed, Katniss Everdeen, along with Gale, Finnick and Beetee, end up back in District 13, which was thought to have been destroyed, but was not the case.  Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her friends, Katniss becomes the "Mockingjay", the symbol of rebellion for the districts of Panem

 

According to Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence would purposely eat foods with garlic or tuna fish before any kissing scenes between the two.

 

Lawrence did her own singing for "The Hanging Tree" segment of the movie. Worldwide, the song went to #1 on the iTunes Sales Chart.  Despite this commercial success, don't expect her to cross over as a recording artist any time soon.  It's reported that Jennifer doesn't like singing and wasn't comfortable filming and recording that sequence.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
Friday & Sunday Only!  March 20 & 22
Starring Ben Stiller, Robin Williams & Owen Wilson

Larry (Stiller) is back at the job he loves: Night Watchman at the Museum of Natural History.  But when the new late-night exhibit that he produces falls apart as the 'living exhibits' malfunction, he discovers that the Egyptian tablet responsible for bringing them to life is corroding.

Larry must span the globe to seek out the secrets of the tablet and, hopefully, find a way to restore it to its full power.

 

Old night guards Cecil (Dick Van Dyke), Reginald (Bill Cobbs) and Gus (Mickey Rooney) return from the original Night at the Museum (2006).  This film is dedicated to Rooney and Robin Williams, both of whom passed away in 2014.  This was Williams' final on-screen role.  His last film, Absolutely Anything, due out in July, will only feature his voice.

 

Ben Kingsley's character, an Egyptian Pharoah, says that he used to own 40,000 Jewish slaves when Stiller's character mentions he's Jewish. Ben Kingsley's previous movie was Ridley Scott''s Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) in which he played a Jewish slave.

Chris Collins & Members of Boulder Canyon
Saturday ONLY!  March 28th

Popular John Denver Tribute Artist Returns to The Strand

 

Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon are the real thing. Though you might detect some similarities, in appearance and voice to John Denver, Chris Collins brings amazing energy to the stage as an award winning songwriter, singer, and entertainer. Boulder Canyon has some of the best musicians from across the country. Each member has an amazing talent that they bring to the band.

The original band members of Boulder Canyon met in 2004 at Aspen in October, the largest celebration of John Denver's life and music. Collins has been a featured performer there since 2002. The band has also had the pleasure of having John's former wife, Casandra Delaney Denver, join them. Collins was also the musical director for John Denver's Windstar's Earth Camp in 2007 and 2008.
 

 

 

In a recent interview, Collins said that every new audience makes the music feel brand new, "Bringing John Denver's music to life is our goal. We work with great joy to perform John's songs with fresh energy and great musical integrity."

You Pick It: The Black List
Sunday Only!  March 29
Where YOU Get to Choose Which Film We Run


                    VOTING DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, MARCH 13!

You Pick It
is back, where YOU get to decide which film we run at The Strand. The winning film will screen for one show only, Sunday, March 29 at 4pm!  Voting Deadline is Friday, March 13, AND YOU CAN ONLY VOTE BY JOINING THE STRAND'S OPEN GROUP ON FACEBOOK.

The Theme is “The Black List"

The Black List is where filmmakers find great material to make films and great material finds filmmakers to make them. It began as a survey in 2005, Franklin Leonard surveyed almost 100 film industry development executives about their favorite scripts from that year that had not been made as feature films. Since then the survey expanded to 600 film industry executives with 60% of them responding. As a result, quite a number of the scripts actually became movies like Argo, Wolf of Wall Street, ...Valkyrie, World War Z, Zombieland, The Hangover and many more.

Here are the movies in no particular order that film fanatic Steven Lunney has come up with from previous Black List surveys:

Valkyrie o Looper o Hanna o The Judge o Foxcatcher
500 Days of Summer
o The Fault in Our Stars o St. Vincent

When you join The Strand's Open Group, find the You Pick It Event Page. There, you'll find the survey to place your vote along with a trailer and background info for each film on the list.  REMEMBER: Voting Deadline is Friday, March 13. So pick your favorite and get your friends to do the same. Then maybe YOUR film will be the winner of this round's You Pick It competition!

Into The Woods
Friday & Saturday Only!  April 3 & 4
Starring Meryl Streep and an All-Star Cast

A witch tasks a childless baker and his wife with procuring magical items from classic fairy tales to reverse the curse put on their family tree.

This Big Screen adaptation of the original musical production is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales.  It follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.arry must span the globe to seek out the secrets of the tablet and, hopefully, find a way to restore it to its full power.

 

At a Q&A session after screening of the film, James Corden recalled an incident during rehearsals in which Meryl Streep jumped on a table and her foot got caught in her costume. She started falling backwards, head first, toward a concrete floor. Both Corden and director Rob Marshall froze in the fear that they were about to witness the death of Meryl Streep. However, a pregnant Emily Blunt stepped in and caught Streep before she hit the floor.

 

According to Anna Kendrick, the set pieces used for the woods were so big and realistic that she and Chris Pine actually got lost while on the sound stage and had to be rescued by a production assistant.

The Imitation Game
Friday - Saturday  April 10 - 12
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira Knightley

                            EIGHT OSCAR NOMINATIONS!

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.

Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays Alan Turing in the film are actually related in real-life. According to the family history site Ancestry.com, the two are 17th cousins with family relations dating back to the 14th century. Both are said to be related to John Beaufort, the first Earl of Somerset, through Cumberbatch and Turing's respective paternal lines.  In another coincidental twist, Cumberbatch obtained his baccalaureate degree in Drama at the University of Manchester, the same university where Turing continued his work on computing after the war.

 

Despite earlier reservations, Turing's niece Inagh Payne told Allan Beswick of BBC Radio Manchester that "the film really did honour my uncle" after Payne watched the film at the London Film Festival in October 2014.  In the same interview, Turing's nephew Dermont Turing stated that Benedict Cumberbatch is "perfect casting. I couldn't think of anyone better." James Turing, a great nephew of the codebreaker said Cumberbatch "knows things that I never knew before. The amount of knowledge he has about Alan is amazing."

A Twist of Lemmon - Live On Stage
Saturday ONLY!  April 25th  2pm & 8pm

Critically Acclaimed One-Man Show starring Chris Lemmon as his Iconic Father

 

The Strand is privileged to be the EXCLUSIVE Pittsburgh area venue for this critically acclaimed one-man show. 


The show is based on Chris Lemmon's book A Twist of Lemmon which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for 8  Academy Awards and won 2 Oscars. One for Mister Roberts for Best Supporting Actor and the other for Save the Tiger for Best Actor.

He tells Jack's story in his father's voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He'll have you crying and laughing with his stories about Jack's relationships both on and off the screen with producers, directors and legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend Walter Matthau.

Chris is an exceptional performer, actor and a classically trained musician. With a career spanning over 30 years Chris has starred in over 25 feature films including Just the Ticket, Lena's Holiday and That's Life.  He's starred in television series on all the major networks including Knots Landing {CBS}, Studio 59 {ABC}, Brother & Sisters {NBC} and Fox's situation comedy, Duet.
 
Jack loved his son Chris but like many actors put his career 1st and family second. It's that relationship that's the focal point for this extremely moving story.  In addition to many heartfelt stories, audiences will be treated to a score of some of Jack's favorite Gershwin songs, performed by Chris, a classically trained pianist.

Broadway ROCKS!
MAY 15 & 16, 2015
The Strand Presents an All-New Broadway Concert Experience
LIVE ON STAGE!!

 

We've been pushing the envelope all year for our all-new Broadway On Main Subscription series, and now it's time to raise the roof! 

 

Many of Broadway's biggest smash hits aren't considered to be traditional musicals at all, but 'Rock Operas'.  Rock and Pop music has been exercising its influence on Broadway for decades, dating back to such memorable smash hits as Bye, Bye Birdie, Jesus Christ, Superstar (sound familiar?), Hair and Pippin.  In some cases, entire shows have been based on the music of specific artists like ABBA (Mama Mia!), The Who's TOMMY and Billy Joel (Movin' Out).  Most recently, 80s 'Hair Band' music was showcased in Rock Of Ages.

 

The Strand brings all that fantastic rock and pop music center stage in the all-new concert experience Broadway Rocks!  You'll want to dig out your lighters (or smartphone lighter apps) and wave them through the air when you hear some of your favorite smash hits from these incredible shows!

 

 

Broadway Rocks is something you've NEVER experienced at The Strand before, or anywhere else for that matter.  As much a rock concert as a Broadway tribute, the evening will include a very eclectic mix of music from a wide vareity of musicals and rock operas where the music was as much of the story as the plot and characters!

 

This will be one for the record books and something you will definitely not want to miss.  And you can get it at a discount when you create a 2-Show Subscription along with “Bible On Broadway.”

Lights Out is a four part vocal group that performs what is being called "The #1 Tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in the country". With a lead singer who sounds almost identical to Frankie Valli himself, the group's infectious personality and fully choreographed show promises to keep audiences wanting more even after the curtain closes.

 

 

Expect to hear your favorite Frankie Valli hits like Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Walk Like a Man, Who Loves You, Dawn, Grease, Oh What a Night (1963) and many more, PLUS a few other surprises along the way! 

 

Lights Out recreated the Four Seasons without impersonating them - their sensational harmonies and crystal clear falsettos gave our guests a high energy show that featured plenty of crowd interaction. We can't wait to have them back again - Frank Quigley, GM Hollywood Casino Penn National

Terry Lee Goffee is Back, & This Time, He's Bringing a Friend

Hits like Ring of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues, by Cash, and songs like Crazy and Walkin’ After Midnight by Cline!

 

Nobody does Cash like Terry Lee Goffee!
Terry Lee's interpretation of Johnny Cash is SO convincing, he was hired by the developers of Guitar Hero 5 to help them create their 'Cash' character for the game!

 

Terry Lee Goffee says of his show "I wanted to make my show different and unique by portraying Johnny Cash in the first person, rather than just standing there singing the songs. Like an actor in a play I literally become my character, in this case Johnny Cash, from the moment I walk onstage until the end of the show." Terry is widely recognized as the best Johnny Cash impersonator around

 

Josie Waverly IS Patsy Cline!

With Patsy’s early hit songs like, Walkin After Midnight, Lovesick Blues and There He Goes through her final hit recordings of Crazy, Leavin on Your Mind and Sweet Dreams, Josie’s performance and vocal capturing of over 20 Patsy Cline signature hit songs is sure to leave you feeling like you just witnessed a true Patsy Cline concert.

 

The format of the show is broken down into two acts: 1 Act Cash & 1 Act Cline.  For the Grand Finale, Terry Lee and Josie will share the stage and perform together in a stirring tribute to these powerhouse legends of Classic Country.

It's A USO Christmas
December 11 - 13, 2015
Swing into that Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Spirit

 

It’s a USO Christmas takes you back in time to enjoy your favorite Christmas songs at their classic best! Nostalgia takes the stage as The Strand presents a professional concert that pays tribute to those famous USO programs produced for our boys in uniform overseas back in the 1940s and 50s.  Expect non-stop music, comedy and ‘backstage’ hijinks.

 

It's a USO Christmas harkens back to the beloved variety shows made famous by the likes of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe and The Andrews Sisters.  Artistic Director Ron Slanina pays tribute to these heroes of yesteryear with a fictional cast of characters and a story that weaves between on-stage performances and peaks 'behind the curtain' for added fun and frivolity. 

 

The Emcee is the wise-cracking host and crooner.  But holding the show together with these temperamental stars can be a challenge!

 

The Starlet is a voluptuous bombshell and flirty kitten, with a range that handles anything from the sultry 'Santa Baby' to the warm-hearted 'Christmas Song'.  But can she handle the G.I. who only has eyes for her?

 

The Broad is ‘Rosemary Clooney meets Bette Midler’. She's a true performer with soul, wit & heart wrapped up in a bawdy, funny gal. She makes you laugh, but can break your heart. 

 

The GI; young, handsome, idealistic, and sings like an angel. Well...an angel who can't keep his eyes off of The Starlet!


It's A USO Christmas has become one of those programs that has become synonymous with the Christmas season.  Fans make it a part of their yuletide traditions just like A Musical Christmas Carol or The Nutcracker.  But this is an EXCLUSIVE production of The Strand.  If you don't see it here, you won't see it anywhere else!

Friday & Saturday, December 11 & 12  8pm
