"Sordid Lives" Film (2000)
As a warm-up for the Washington Premiere of "A Very Sordid Wedding" on Friday, September 15, Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the cult hit "Sordid Lives" on Thursday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. "Sordid Lives" is an independent film released in 2000, written and directed by Del Shores, based on his play of the same name. The film follows a gay West Hollywood actor as he returns home to his small Texas town for his grandmother's funeral. Three generations of his dysfunctional family collide and the hilariously trashy truth of their lives are revealed. The film's remarkable cast includes Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Delta Burke (TV’s “Designing Women”), Bonnie Bedelia (TV’s “Parenthood”), Beau Bridges (TV’s “Masters of Sex”) and Leslie Jordan (TV's "Will and Grace"). "Sordid Lives" was followed in 2008 by the television series "Sordid Lives: The Series" which expanded on the events of the original film and included many of the original cast members. A sequel film "A Very Sordid Wedding" is currently in limited theatrical release and the September 15 screening at the Power House will be the official Washington Premiere of the film. Filmmakers Del Shore (writer/director) and Emerson Collins (producer/actor) will be in attendance. "Sordid Lives" is rated R (language, nudity) and runs approximately 1 hour 50 minutes. Snacks, beer, and wine will be available for purchase. Reserved seating tickets ($20 Adults, $15 Students - for both films) will be available to the public on Saturday, July 29 at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. A $40 VIP Package is also available with tickets to both films, private meet and greet reception with the filmmakers.

Film
A Very Sordid Wedding
Gesa Power House Theatre will host the Washington Premiere of the 2017 independent film "A Very Sordid Wedding" on Friday, September 25 at 7:00 p.m. Two of the filmmakers, Del Shores (writer/director) and Emerson Collins (producer/actor) will be in attendance. "A Very Sordid Wedding" (2017) is a direct sequel to "Sordid Lives" (2000) and takes place seventeen years later in the same small Texas community with many of the same memorable characters. As the sordid saga continues, an anniversary memorial service is being planned in honor of Peggy at Bubba’s Bar while the Southside Baptist Church is planning an "Anti-Equality Rally" to protest the advancement of same-sex marriage. Both events are to take place on the same night, so the cast of colorful characters are all on a collision course for shenanigans and fireworks! As the original film dealt with coming out in a conservative southern world, "A Very Sordid Wedding" explores the questions, bigotry and the fallout of what happens when gay marriage comes to communities and families that are not quite ready to accept it. Bigoted “religious freedom,” marriage equality and cultural acceptance are all explored with Del Shores’ trademark approach to using comedy and his much-beloved "Sordid Lives" characters to deal with these important current social issues and the very real process of accepting your family for who they are instead of who you want them to be. "A Very Sordid Wedding" is unrated, but does contain adult language and situations. Recommended for 18+. The film runs 1 hour 50 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. Reserved seating tickets ($20 Adults, $15 Students - for both films) will be available to the public on Saturday, July 29 at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. A $40 VIP Package is also available with tickets to both films, private meet and greet reception with the filmmakers.

Folk,Electronic
Alt-J
Pronounced "alt-J", the delta sign is created when you hold down the alt key on your computer keyboard and punch 'J' on a Mac computer. The symbol has a deeper meaning for the band, as guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury notes, 'in mathematical equations it's used to show change,' and the band's relatively new name came at a turning point in their lives.
