Join Our Conversation with Elliott Gould, A Special Fundraiser for the Cinema Arts Centre
Sunday, November 15 at 2pm

Hosted by CAC Co-Director Dylan Skolnick

Public $45 | Members $35

Join us for a lively Zoom conversation with Elliott Gould, whose work over the past 50 years has made him an icon of American cinema.

Following a run of prominent stage roles on Broadway, Elliott Gould emerged into the wider public’s consciousness with Paul Mazursky’s 1969 sexual revolution classic Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. In the half-century that has followed, he has created a rich body of work in both movies and television.

His collaborations with director Robert Altman in M*A*S*H, The Long Goodbye, and California Split, were crucial works in establishing a new wave of American filmmaking in 1970s Hollywood.

In 1971, Gould produced and starred in the beloved screen adaptation of Jules Feiffer’s Little Murders. The many highlights of Gould’s career include Getting Straight, Capricorn One, Ingmar Bergman’s The Touch, The Silent Partner, The Lemon Sisters, Bugsy, Noah Baumbach’s Kicking and Screaming, Ruby Sparks, American History X, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, and, as well as his recurring role as the beloved Ruben Tishikoff in Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen, and Gary Ross’ Ocean’s 8.

Beginning in the late 90s up until today, Gould found a new generation of fans as Mr. Geller, Ross and Monica’s dad on the famed TV sitcom Friends. His other TV work includes roles on Ray Donovan, The Kominsky Method, Grace and Frankie, Hawaii 5-0, even appearing as himself on The Simpsons, among many others.

Gould is part of a rare group of celebrities known as “the 5 timers”, having hosted Saturday Night Live six times, and helping to earn them their first Emmy.

Don’t miss a rare opportunity to spend some time with this essential actor and support your independent community cinema during this critical time.

2020 Vic Skolnick Life of Our Cinema Campaign Volunteers Needed - Join our Training Session on Zoom to Learn More!

2020 is the 10th anniversary of naming our annual campaign for our late co-founder Vic Skolnick. We named our campaign for Vic shortly after his death as an ongoing tribute as we continue the work of engaging our community in the life and future of the Cinema Arts Centre.

This year's campaign could be the most important annual campaign in our history. The participation of member/volunteers will help to ensure our success.

We will conduct a training for campaign volunteers, or for anyone who is interested in learning more about what it means to become a campaign volunteer, or anyone who would just like to learn more about the Cinema Arts Centre's mission, history, programs, finances, and how and why we we raise funds. The session will be held on Zoom on Wednesday October 28 from 6pm-7pm.

RSVP to rene@cinemaartscentre.org and the Zoom info will be emailed to you.
