"Stern's appearance produced the kind of lightning you could have experienced in the '60s when everything seemed possible and hope was in the air."  —The New York Times Political, outspoken and passionate, Chilean singer-songwriter and activist Nano Stern has created his own musical language – an otherworldly sound that blends the youthful exuberance of folk music mixed with years of classical and jazz training against the powerful force of traditional Chilean revolutionary songs.What has emerged is a brilliantly layered confluence of indigenous African, European and North and South American musical influences that reverberate with a soulfulness and originality unlike any other South American artist performing today. He appeared with Joan Baez in 2016 at her 75th birthday celebration at the Beacon Theater in New York where she praised him as “the best young Chilean songwriter of his generation.”Funds provided by the José Luis Nazar Endowment for the Performing Arts. 8PM–Saturday, March 30 Doors at 7pm

The Fox Theater Pomona presents ELF & GREMLINS holiday movies this upcoming December 18th and 19th. Tickets are available now $4 online presale only and $8 at the door. Bring your friends and family to this beautiful historic art-deco movie theater.  - $2 Popcorn -Kitchen  -Full Bar  -Balcony Seating Gremlins is a 1984 American comedy horror film written by Chris Columbus and directed by Joe Dante. The story follows a young man who receives a strange creature called a mogwai as a pet, which then spawns other creatures who transform into small, destructive, evil monsters. It draws on legends of folkloric mischievous creatures that caused malfunctions — "gremlins" — in England's Royal Air Force going back to World War II. The film stars Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates, with Howie Mandel providing the voice of Gizmo, the main mogwai character. Steven Spielberg was the film's executive producer, with the film being produced by Michael Finnell and released by Warner Bros. It was followed by a sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, released in 1990. Unlike the more satirical tone of the sequel (which parodies Hollywood sequels), Gremlins opts for more black comedy, balanced against a Christmastime setting. Both films were the center of large merchandising campaigns. Despite being a critical and commercial success, the film was heavily criticized for some of its more violent sequences. In response to this and to similar complaints about Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Spielberg suggested that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) alter its rating system, which it did within two months of the film's release, creating a new PG-13 rating.
