A rollicking good time with great theatre and fabulous live jazz. Call the Fine Arts Center at 634-5583 to get your tickets and then pick them up at Broadmoor Community Church the night of the performance.
Tickets are available at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center!. This an outstanding show with an all-star cast. You'll be happy you came.
What a fantastic evening! A great show for any age. We will be back next year!!!!!
Whose work (mixed media pendants) is featured in the image? Thanks.
Brick Alley, a local cover band covering Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, Local H, Weezer, and putting our own twist on Green Day, Radiohead, and R.E.M songs, will be taking the stage at 11 after the tribute band. We have been on the bill since the moment the show was booked a month ago. See you all there!
Where would a family in need of a very large turkey go? If giving away things that go with bird like mushy taters as kids call them rolls etc would be great
According to a tweet sent out by Colorado College earlier today, "All Rainbow Cinema events at CC this weekend have been canceled at this time."
LADIES, DON'T DATE SPELLBINDER! HE IS CRAZY!
This is the best show that has been at the Fine Arts Center in long time. Floyd is a Master.
love this place, it's all about table top gaming.
open late every day it's the place to be for all your gaming needs, from AD&D to World of Warcraft CCG they have what your looking for & if it's out they can get it fast.
We went on family day and it wasn't very family friendly. There was nothing for our kids to do, it was a very small event, the food wasn't that good, and was over priced. It was a waste of my time and money. Will not be going again
A little late isn't it? It ended early this afternoon.
A strange thing to be doing during church on a Sunday morning. Did they fill the place with beds and draw blood from everyone in place of the sermon?
This was a great play with great players. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. The mother, Amanda , was brilliant, I liked her enthusiasm , Tom was versatile and Laura was in her own world and sweet, Jim was not likeable to me, but he played the part. My only regret is that i cannot whistle, because they did an outstanding job! Loved it!!!
Who made the bowls?
October 6th show has been cancelled due to weather. No rain-date at this time.
INNOCENTS ARE MORE AT RISK WHEN WE ALLOW MURDERERS TO LIVE
Do anti death penalty folks really care about innocents at risk? Of course.
But, for their leadership, they would prefer to see an additional 6.3 murdered innocents, instead of the execution of 1250 known murderers (2).
For some very well known leaders of the anti death penalty movement, their motivation is not protecting innocents, but protecting the lives of all murderers, no matter the cost in innocent lives. That's their moral choice.
THE LOW RISK OF EXECUTING THE INNOCENT
Depending upon review, possibly we have sent from 25-40 actually innocent people to death row, or about 0.4% of the 8400 so sentenced in the modern era, post Furman v Georgia (1972) (1).
So far, the evidence is that the death penalty is 99.6% accurate in finding actually guilty murderers guilty and 100% accurate in sparing those actually innocent from an unjust execution.
It is unlikely that there is a more accurate system.
There appears to be no proof of an innocent executed in the US, at least since the 1930's.
That includes the Troy Davis, Cameron Willingham and Carlos DeLuna cases.
It is much more likely that an actual innocent, sentenced to life, will die in prison, than it is that an actual innocent will be executed.
About 5000 prisoners, on average, under custody, die every year in the US (2).
On average, we have executed about 33 murderers per year since 1973.
In addition, at least 14,000 additional innocents have been murdered by murderers we have allowed to harm, again, since 1973, the year that US states started to re-enact new death penalty statutes after Furman v Georgia (2).
Since 1973, somewhere between 40,000 and 200,000 actual innocents have been murdered in the US by criminals who were under the government supervision of parole or probation, at the time of the murders. (2).
THE DEATH PENALTY: SAVING MORE INNOCENT LIVES
Innocents are more at risk without the death penalty.
Of all endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.
1) The Death Penalty: Saving More Innocent Lives
2) Innocents More At Risk Without Death Penalty
I'm looking forward to the first "big-screen" showing of GrowthBusters in Colorado Springs in several months. We'll be showing the new "Final Cut" of the film, and I'll be there. Don't be the last person in in Colorado Springs to see this film (C. Springs plays a staring role)!
GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth
This is not sponsored by the City of Manitou, everything is being provided by American Legion. It is still open to the public, but it not an official "Manitou Springs" event.
Lots of things for kids at good prices.
