Cutting Room for March 7 2012

  • As I’m sure outspoken feminist Rush Limbaugh is aware, March is Women’s History Month, or as the shock jock calls it “A Celebration of Whores Past.” Luckily, not everyone celebrates by tossing out sexist slurs, as several nonprofit groups have partnered with House of Loom (houseofloom.com) to present free screenings of four films celebrating women in the arts, with in-kind donations encouraged to benefit Lydia House for Women and Children in Omaha. Did I mention that it comes with dinner? Because it totally does! Things kick off March 7th at 7 pm, with a new film at that time each Wednesday all month long. So bring your donations, including women’s toiletries and baby items, and rush to celebrate women’s history just don’t celebrate women’s history like Rush.
  • Speaking of divisive icons, Jane Fonda is Omaha bound! Film Streams (filmstreams.org) will play host to the former Turner spouse on Sunday, May 13 at 6:30 pm at the Holland Performing Arts Center (omahaperformingarts.org) for Feature IV, the nonprofit theater’s annual fundraising celebration. Tickets go on sale Wednesday March 28 for $35, so be sure to get them now in order to guarantee a chance to ask Fonda all about her pivotal role in Monster in Law, the most beloved film of our generation.
  • Good news Muppet-philes, another dose of our fuzzy felt finger-fueled friends is on its way! The Muppets sequel will not be written by Jason Segal this time out, but he may still star in it, as his buddy, Nicholas Stoller, and the director of the first film, James Bobin, have taken on the screenwriting duties. A note to those fellas: there’s no such thing as too much Gonzo.
