Facebook Listing It’s obvious that I love music. What many might not realize is that I love movies just as much. Ever since I was a kid, I have absorbed facts, trivia, and any inconsequential minutiae relating to film. I consider myself a walking movie encyclopedia. Seriously, next time you see me, ask me who stars in any movie and I can probably tell you.
It’s always been cool to me that a bona fide movie legend has been working in Pittsburgh for several years now as Principal Pops Conductor for The Pittsburgh Symphony. Marvin Hamlisch’s filmography as a composer is jaw dropping. ‘The Sting’, ‘The Way We Were’, and ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ are just a few of his career highlights. He is ‘conducting’ a meet and greet and Q&A this Saturday around 1:45 p.m. at the Waterworks Cinema before a screening of his latest film, ‘The Informant’ starring Matt Damon. Tickets are only $4 and can be bought on the day of show only but I have a pair to give away now. The first person to e-mail me the correct answer to the following question at firstname.lastname@example.org will have two tickets waiting at will call in their name.
Mr. Hamlisch is one of only two people ever to win an Emmy, an Oscar, a Grammy, a Tony, a Golden Globe, and a Pulitzer Prize. Who is the other person? Good luck and see you there.
