'Sudden Death' and Live Comedy at Hollywood Theater

Hollywood Theater's weekend lineup includes several special events and a movie filmed in Pittsburgh.

It's going to be a busy weekend at Dormont's Hollywood Theater, with special events, unique screenings and a lot of food.

Highlights include two live events, and a new twist on the theater's successful Breakfast and a Movie.

A showing of the 1925 film "The Lost World" will be accompanied by live music from the Andrew Alden Ensemble on Friday evening.

On Saturday, the So Good It's Bad series continues with a screening of Pittsburgh-filmed "Sudden Death," featuring comedy by Hustlebot in the style of "Mystery Sciene Theater 3000."

Sunday is Breakfast and a Movie, featuring "The Maltese Falcon," and Sunday evening is Meat and a Movie, featuring "The Beastmaster" and catering by Cain's Saloon. Tickets for these events must be purchased ahead of time. Tickets for the movie only will be sold at the door.
