UUVerdugo Movie Night: "Wag the Dog" (1997)

Released at the tail (ahem) end of the Clinton administration, "Wag the Dog" ("Shortly before an election, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to fabricate a war in order to cover up a Presidential sex scandal") has just as much relevance now, and serves as a not-so-quaint reminder of a not-so-innocent time. Starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. Requested $5 donations will be sent to IRC San Diego for immigrants who are waiting for asylum hearings. 

7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Unitarian Universalism Is a Very Long Name

Rev. KC Slack


We begin a monthly series on Unitarian Universalist history, theology, and practice by asking: what on earth is Unitarian Universalism and why does it have such a long name? 

10:30 a.m.

Facility Rental

UUVerdugo occupies two distinct but connected buildings in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains. One building, which holds our 110-seat sanctuary, is a lovely meeting space built in the Craftsman style, with wooden beams and a high arched roof, along with stained glass windows and a recessed proscenium stage.

This stage features a Baby Grand piano and a moveable pulpit with microphone. 

On Sundays this sanctuary is home to our morning services, but that still leaves about 164 hours...

At other times we rent the sanctuary for concerts, recitals, candidate nights, community meetings, movie screenings, weddings, memorial services, baby dedications, plays, and other performances, including our monthly Verdugo HUUT.

UUVerdugo has WiFi and an additional sound system suitable for bands, speakers, and plays. We are also available for film shoots and recording, as our acoustics make everyone sound just a little better...

The sanctuary is connected to our Friendship Hall via a short hallway with two bathrooms. Friendship Hall offers a smaller meeting space (about 50 people) and features a full-service kitchen as well as several smaller adjoining meeting rooms.

We welcome all facilities rental inquiries for one-off or regular use. Please contact Board President Marty Barrett here.
