Phog Lounge has been trying to encourage customers, community members, artists, and more to become involved in the improvement of their city. This pertains to all levels of life such as the block you live or work on, your neighbourhood, or your ward.
A FREE opportunity to see how Pittsburgh changed itself through business and community involvement is coming on Friday, February 26th.
Writer/producer/director of My Tale of Two Cities, Carl Kurlander, will be on site for the showing of the film at The Capitol Theatre.
Filmed in the style of “Super Size Me” and “Roger and Me,” My Tale of Two Cities is a funny and heartfelt movie that tells the comeback story of “St. Elmo’s Fire” screenwriter Carl Kurlander, who moved back to Pittsburgh from Los Angeles – only to find himself and his hometown in mid-life crisis. Kurlander asks his neighbours – from the famous (Steelers Franco Harris and Teresa Heinz Kerry) to his old gym teacher and the girl who inspired “St. Elmo’s Fire”- how this once great industrial giant, which built America with its steel, conquered polio and invented everything from the Big Mac to aluminum, can reinvent itself for a new age. With many in our region wondering the same thing, “My Tale of Two Cities” is a charming, engaging feel-good film that explores home, community and ultimately proves “it’s never too late for a comeback.”
Panel discussion afterwards “What Windsor Can Learn from Pittsburgh’s Comeback” featuring writer/producer/director Carl Kurlander and special guests.
