A LATE QUARTET

Cast looks promising!

Starring Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, and Wallace Shawn, this beautifully acted drama follows the members of a world-renowned string quartet who struggle to stay together after their cellist (Walken) announces, on the eve of their 25th anniversary concert, that he is retiring.

The quartet wrestles with issues of mortality, infidelity and of course, competing egos. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven's Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, the film pays homage to the cultural world of New York and the vitality of the performing arts. (Yaron Zilberman; USA; 2012; 105 min)

Showing is at 8PM. Meet in lobby before. Or at a pre-film activity nearby:

At nearby Shaw Galleries, located at 805 Liberty Ave., there will be a Closing Reception for the exhibit "Jimmy Taaffe: Pittsburgh After Dark" this Saturday evening, Jan. 19, from 5 to 8 p.m.
This event is FREE and open to the public.

"Pittsburgh After Dark" is a unique collection of photographs depicting the great city of Pittsburgh after the sun has dropped. Urban Photographer Jimmy Taaffe brings to life the city of Pittsburgh with dynamic photos of the Steel City. Some of Pittsburghs greatest landmarks are sometimes seen best… after dark.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
