Rent tells the story of a group of impoverished friends struggling to survive and create in New York’s gritty Alphabet City in the early 90’s. Over the course of a year, Rent follows these starving artists as they strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness, impending gentrification and the AIDS epidemic.
The audience is led through an emotional rollercoaster while the day-to-day struggles of scraping by make up the show’s narrative. The heart of Rent remains the multiple love stories that run throughout.

Passport Travel Series
Sudan: The Inside Story
National Geographic Explorer Karin Muller
March 16th at 2:30 p.m.
NatGeo Explorer Karin Muller's new documentary “Sudan: The Inside Story” is not a story about victims - it’s about victory. It’s not about human suffering, but speaks of joy and community. Most of all, it’s testimony to the power of the human spirit and the courage of those who have lost more than we can ever imagine, and yet have found hope - and often happiness - in some of the most desperate places on earth. How did they do it? The answer may change your life.
Join Karin Muller as she hosts this Southern California film premiere and shares her experiences live in person.

Passport Travel Series
The World Is Round
Steve McCurdy/Creative Light Productions
March 30th at 2:30 p.m.
This travel documentary titled “The World is Round” is an insider's look at the sights, sounds, people and places that have inspired producer Steven McCurdy's wanderlust and imagination. In this film we travel to 14 cities on four continents; from the Ganges River in India and the ancient city of Varanasi to the Fjords of Norway, where McCurdy goes in search of his ancestral home in Oslo and Risor. Visit Paris and Versailles with a film crew, then on to Hong Kong where we ride the 25 cent Hong Kong Ferry.
In this film you only catch a glimpse of the Worlds many wonders, but it is hoped that by experiencing this cinematic adventure you will be inspired to travel to “Faraway Places with Strange Sounding Names” more often.
