The Big Lebowski @ The Cedar Lee 12.4 9:30 & MID

Part of the Cedar Lee Theatre Cult Film Series, The Big Lebowski (1998) will be shown this Saturday, Dec. 4th at 9:30PM and 11:55PM. Anyone interested in the 9:30PM showing? Remember to wear your bathrobe!

Jeff Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), known as the Dude, is a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money—resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.

Admission is just $5. NO Children under 5.

Danielle Muad'Dib featured in Plain Dealer Arts today

CONGRATS to Danielle 'Squeal' Muad'Dib, one of our favorite models, on her feature in today's Cleveland Plain Dealer. The article quotes her extensively and says: 'Squeal, who performs Friday nights at Luxe, a restaurant and bar on Cleveland's West Side, has been at the forefront of Cleveland's burlesque revival.' Squeal is Danielles new stage name, along with Jason Tilk's 'Pinch'. We should set aside a Friday night to go see their new show.

Café Bellas Artes @CMA 12.10 6:30PM

A FREE special bi-lingual program, Tradition and Innovation in Mayan Cultural Survival. Mayan cultural practices have survived for over two millennia, in spite of environmental collapse, conquest, disease, poverty, and civil war. Using examples from Classic architecture, mythology and ethnopoetics, ritual practice, and various technologies of daily life, we examine the system of Mayan values that has supported strategies of cultural maintenance that are still observed today in Mayan communities.

Presented by Dr. Laura Martin. Dr. Martin holds a doctorate in linguistics from the University of Florida, and specializes in Mayan languages, particularly Mocho, a language spoken today by only a few Mayans in Chiapas, Mexico. Her scholarship and research centers around Central American Spanish dialectology, discourse analysis, language pedagogy, and linguistic anthropology. She is the author of several books and dozens of articles and reviews. 

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. More information: Roberto Chavez (216) 687-9283
