Special Screening: FED UP
The County Theatre, 20 E. State Street, Doylestown
FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever. A panel discussion with doctors, nutritionists and educators will follow the discussion. Co-sponsored by numerous area businesses and organizations who care.

Community Conversations: Change Won’t Happen Without Your Voice
Southampton Free Library, 947 Street Rd, Southampton
6:00pm – 7:30pm
In order to understand and better serve the needs of our community, UW Bucks wants to hear from you. We want to learn from your experiences, understand your concerns, and offer you the opportunity to share your vision for our community. This 90 minute “kitchen table” conversation will be led by experienced facilitators. Light refreshments will be served. Don’t miss your chance to be heard! To join the conversation, please RSVP via the United Way of Bucks County website.
McCoole’s Arts & Events Place, 10 South Main Street, Quakertown
The Derelict Franchise is a Rock band for the ages that cleverly melds the sound of American Folk and Bluegrass with the attitude and mentality of Punk for a sound that is refreshing as it is unique.
DCP Theater, 795 Ridge Road, Telford
A philandering dentist keeps his many affairs at bay by claiming to be married with children. When the ruse threatens to catch up with him, he drafts his prickly nurse to pose as his “wife”. She blossoms and he finds himself falling in love with the lovely “cactus flower” right under his very nose. This Broadway hit later became a successful film starring Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman, and Goldie Hawn.
