    “Slow Food” - A vacationing couple celebrates their anniversary at a Greek restaurant in Palm Springs - but will the marriage survive the service? As a needy waiter insinuates his way into their meal - and their lives - the couple examines their past and their future together. Playwright Wendy MacLeod brings us a tender comedy that delves deeply into what we hunger for. " “Slow Food,” playwright Wendy MacLeod comes up with every imaginable (and unimaginable) way to delay the couple's gratification, while simultaneously serving up 95 minutes of delicious comedy for the audience to relish... If you've never understood the concept of the term hangry, you'll get it after seeing “Slow Food”... a tasty recipe for a great night at the theater."

    “Slow Food” is a comedy through and through. It is Sartre meeting Seinfeld in a Greek restaurant and the laughs come easily and often. How could anyone be expected to put up with this impossibly unbearable situation? And yet, for these two empty-nesters, perhaps the slow service is more of a gift than either of them realize… sometimes waiting can open a heart.

    Starring Carole Florman, Tom Handel, and Gregory J. Hawks. Tickets: $20 adult, $18 members, and $5 youth 18 and under.

    “The Adventures of Robin Hood” - (1938; 1 hour, 42 minutes) -  Please join us for “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” the third film in Season 6 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the Legends & Lovers of Hollywood. Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland ignite the screen in the quintessential swashbuckler. In the best-loved of their eight screen pairings, Errol and Olivia portray Robin Hood, the bandit king of Sherwood Forest, and the lovely Maid Marian. When King Richard the Lionheart is captured, his scheming brother Prince John (Claude Rains) plots to swipe the throne with the help of villainous Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Basil Rathbone)…but not if Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men have anything to say about it! We are pleased to be joined by film historian and CFC host, Jeannie MacDonald, as well as special guest Keith Langendorfer, for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback. Playing Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.
