All Day ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER A Greek saying states that only women who have washed their eyes with tears can see clearly. The saying does not hold true for Manuela (Cecilia Roth). The night a car ran over her son Esteban, Manuela cried until she was completely dry. And far from seeing clearly, the present and the future become mixed up in the same darkness. In memory of her son, Manuela leaves Madrid and goes to Barcelona in search of the father her son never knew. Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film. Directed by Pedro Almodovar (Talk to Her, Live Flesh). (Fully subtitled) - 101 minutes. - Rated R. The showing of this movie starts on September 1, 2006.

Location: Landmark's Ken Cinema, 4061 Adams Avenue San Diego, CA 92116

1:00 PM Stage: Kiss of the Spider Woman KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN revamps a harrowing tale of persecution into a dazzling spectacle that juxtaposes gritty realities with liberating fantasies. Cell mates in a Latin American prison, Valentin is a tough revolutionary undergoing torture and Molina is an unabashed homosexual serving eight years for deviant behavior. Molina shares his fantasies about an actress, Aurora with Valentin. One of her roles is a Spider Woman who kills with a kiss. (PG-13 - Recommended for 17+, younger at parents discretion)

Director/Choreographer Ray Limon shared "I have always wanted to direct KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN. The piece is a powerful look at very different people coming together in difficult time and finding common ground. A theme that remains incredibly relevant and important to explore. I'm thrilled with the talented group of performers with whom I get to tell this incredible story."

8:00 PM Stage: The Explorer's Club Neil Benjamin's post-colonial comedy lambastes Victorian rectitude, varieties of male sexism, and the British love of Empire (one even claims he discovered the "East Pole"). How? By having a woman join the heretofore all-male Explorer's Club in 1879. She's Phyllida Spotte Hume (Jessica John, sharp and funny). Theintrepid adventuressdiscovered a Lost City (at the "worst place on earth") and earned the right to be a member. As proof, she brings Luigi, a native, painted blue. The premise intrigues, but the slight play hops from episode to episode without an engine driving it forward. Lamb's Players production, ably directed by Robert Smyth, gets every possible laugh from the piece. And the male actors (Francis Gercke, Ross Hellwig, John Rosen, Brian Mackey, Omri Schein, Paul Eggington, and Brian Salmon) catch a series of sliding glass tumblers with near-Olympian dexterity.Worth a try.

Admission/Cost: $24 - $74
