UUVERDUGO MOVIE NIGHT: "KELLY & CAL"


Join screenwriter (and UUVerdugo member) Amy Starbin as she introduces her 2014 film "Kelly & Cal," starring Juliette Lewis. Starbin, who recently wrapped principal photography on her directorial debut, "Los Aliens," talks Hollywood meeting upstate New York in this sweet, funny, and transgressive 2014 film.

Kelly, a punk-rocker turned suburban mom, is nostalgic for a life she can no longer have and uncertain of a future she doesn't yet fit in. Seventeen-year-old Cal is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt. When the two strike up an unlikely friendship, it's the perfect spark needed to thrust them both back to life.

Screening begins at 7 p.m./Rated R

Sunday Service: The Sanctity of Sex Ed
Guest Minister: Emmalinda MacLean

 Unitarian Universalists are pioneers in comprehensive sexuality education, offering “Our Whole Lives” classes that flip the script on “traditional” sex ed—focusing on values like self-worth, respect, healthy relationships, responsibility, and justice.  Emmalinda MacLean, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist who proudly graduated from the Our Whole Lives program as a 7th grader, believes religiously that accurate, inclusive, respectful conversations are the antidote to the toxic messages about sex that permeate our culture today.

10:30 a.m.

This Saturday's Verdugo HUUT!: I Gave My Love A [Redacted]

For every song about muskrat love there are at least 12,000 more about breaking up. This week at the HUUT we will feature a very high quality fraction of them.

Our 16th Verdugo HUUT! (pronounced "hoot" because of, you know, Unitarians) takes a dark, exciting, and (hopeful?) turn as we devote the evening to music, comedy, and other performance about breaking up. Whether you are happily coupled, tripled, or quadrupled, mournful about the loss of that imperfect someone, or guardedly relieved that that's over, join us for an exuberant evening of songs, stories, and snacks as we tackle this subject in the HUUT's inimitable style. Featuring HUUT favorites Art Stucco, Carol McArthur, Mitchell Schaffer, and Fogelfoot.
