With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori (Rose Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others – as well as her own – and find a new purpose in life.
 
Starring: Rose Byrne, Susan Sarandon, Cecily Strong, J.K. Simmons, Jason Ritter, Jerrod Carmichael, Lucy Punch, and Michael McKean
 
Director: Lorene Scafaria

In the Art Bar - Bill Ball

The Lincoln Theatre Gallery Art Bar will feature a selection of Bill Ball Fireball’s contemporary art.  Bill will be painting live during his artist opening and the Mount Vernon Art Walk on June 2, 2016, 5pm to 8pm. The show features selected contemporary works created since he completed his first painting at Burning Man in 2013.  Bill Ball Fireball’s work will be displayed at the Lincoln Theatre Art Bar through June 30, 2016.
  
Bill Ball Fireball’s Artist Statement:  It all started in 2013. With no formal training in art, I only discovered that I was an artist when I found myself at Burning Man, a week long art and music event in the Nevada desert. Artists were constructing and painting walls and sharing spaces. I was given a wall. I was tentative at first but threw myself into painting. "Psychedelic Cross" was the result, a large, vibrant, multicolored work... but a temporary one. I slept for a few hours and awoke to find it had been painted over.
