In partnership with Eakin Films, Fathom Events, the recognized leader in event cinema, is bringing Jennifer Wilder Morgan’s inspirational and captivating narrative, COME TO THE GARDEN – ON STAGE!, to select cinemas nationwide for a special one-night event, which includes a post-show discussion with Jennifer and William Paul Young, author of The Shack. In this show, featured voiceover performances include Emmy-winner and Today Show host Kathie Lee Gifford, Academy Award®-winner Louis Gossett, Jr. and popular faith comedienne Chonda Pierce.

Enjoy an engaging evening with effervescent storyteller and author Jennifer Wilder Morgan, as she interacts on stage with animated characters and scenery from her highly anticipated book, Come to the Garden. For the first time in a feature-length cinema stage event of its kind, groundbreaking projection technology is used to create a fusion of live action and animation, creating a unique and immersive experience. Join Jennifer as she retraces her unique journey, deepest fears and life-changing discoveries, and recreates the private garden where she threw open her heart to the possibility of personal Divine communication. In this sacred space and with guidance from her humorous guardian angel, Margaret, Jenn journeys through a human understanding of the unknown, and renders it ultimately knowable through the inspired inner voices she believes are available to us all.

Oh My Gad

LARGO at the CORONET

366 N. La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

7:30pm

While Gad Elmaleh is arguably the most widely known and beloved comedian in Europe, he has now embarked on the newest chapter of his career: breaking through to the American audience. For this, he has crafted, Oh My Gad, a new stand-up show entirely in English, building upon the jokes that made him famous overseas and including new observations from his life in America.

Gad debuted his first all English show in a sold-out ten-night run at Joe’s Pub at The Public last year, introducing his singular humor and insight to a new audience. With Oh My Gad, he will continue the enormous task of not just speaking a new language fluently, but of using it with the timing, nuance and syntax required for great stand-up comedy. Says The Guardian, “The chance to see Elmaleh spreading his wings in the U.S. is not one to be missed.”

"I Know What I’m Doing — and Other Lies I Tell Myself": Jen Kirkman Book Release

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

I Know What I’m Doing — and Other Lies I Tell Myself: Dispatches from a Life Under Construction

Join comedian Jen Kirkman for a special book release show! Unlike a typical stand-up show, this is a night of Jen’s funny, personal, and cringe-worthy stories—aka “dispatches from a life under construction”—including tales of an awkward kid, teen, young, and now-technically-adult Jen. You’ll hear stories that aren’t in the book, followed by a reading from the book and a Q&A. Ask anything! Except don’t ask what the meaning of life is—Jen knows but she’s not gonna tell you. You figure it out.

Books will be for sale, and Jen will be available to sign them (and anything else) after the show.
