Summer Fun 2014





Summer Film Classics: Swingin' Britons of the 1960s: Casino Royale

It's a spoof that went places even James Bond feared to tread. Huge and featuring an enormous cast of all-stars, Casino Royale has intermittent laughs amid crazy set-pieces – and a great Burt Bacharach score. (Double bill: What's New, Pussycat?)

9:10PM, Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress

    New work by Pat Snow! New work by Matthew John Winters! Yes, it's Snow and Winters here at the start of another triple-digit summer.
