'The Waiting Room' Examines Hospital's Care of Uninsured Patients

Here's what happening at Dormont's Hollywood Theater this weekend.

Two special events, a powerful documentary, and a Robert DeNiro classic are on the marquee at Dormont's Hollywood Theater this weekend.

On Saturday, documentary "Hazel Dickens: It's Hard to Tell the Singer from the Song" will be shown as part of the Appalshop Film Series.

The Silent Film Series continues on Sunday with the 1925 film "The Freshman."

Also on the marquee is the 2012 documentary "The Waiting Room," which examines the struggle of one American hospital in a community where a large number of patients are uninsured.

Robert DeNiro was nominated for an Oscar for his role in the 1976 film "Taxi Driver," which also is on the marquee this weekend.
