MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
ANNOUNCES FREE FILM SERIES
AND OCTOBER SHOWS

 September 23, 2010 (Jupiter) - The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is in full swing with its first-ever free film series, two kids' shows and a one-man show about Zero Mostel.

The film series, themed to the not-for-profit Theatre's upcoming season productions, opens with Twelve Angry Men on Oct. 18, tied to the courtroom drama that is the Theatre's season opener. Other films in the series are The Sound of Music on Dec. 29, pegged to the musical that offers a few of our favorite things, and The Jazz Singer on Feb. 7, the landmark 1927 "talkie" film starring Al Jolson, subject of the Theatre's pre-tour musical, Jolson at the Winter Garden! The series is sponsored by Florida Weekly and Seaview Radio 95.9 FM/960 AM.

"All three of our films are directly tied to the full-scale season performances that the Theatre is producing this season," said the Theatre's Artistic Director, Andrew Kato. "We wanted to provide a special treat for theatergoers who can see the movie version on the big screen for free, then see the live stage show just weeks later. We hope it will provide something new for residents, as well as remind them of the true magic of live theatre."

Showtime for each film is 7 p.m. Free, but advance tickets are required. Call (561) 575-2223 for your free tickets.

Also in October, the Theatre will present two PNC Kids Korner shows for families, the special limited engagement Zero Hour about the life of Zero Mostel and its first-ever fashion show to benefit the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Conservatory of Performing Arts.
