The Hungry Hungry Games: A Parody
In the chilling world of the New York Times best-selling series The Hunger Games, tributes represent their districts in a televised fight to the death sponsored by corporations. Yet poverty, oppression, and teenagers forced to do battle without cell service is no match for the producers of Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody. In The Hungry Hungry Games: A Parody, the creative forces behind the adult-themed satire lampoon another literary hit based on the sensational young-adult novels and the Jennifer Lawrence–led film franchise. This farcical romp takes audiences on a darkly humorous trek through author Suzanne Collins’s vision of the future, following the Katniss counterpart as she strings her bow and takes aim at funny bones.<p>
The Riverside Theater
As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
