I 20 PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: Thurs., March 11, 1982 The Triangle Tattler: Showcase adds movie discount nightsli Bargain days: Moviegoers in Pittsburgh are being offered more discount prices than ever. Bowing to competitive pressures, the Showcase Cinemas will reduce their prjces to $1.50 all day on Monday and Tuesday at all its North, East ami West theaters. The price change starts Monday. Cinemette theaters bejjan the cut-rate policy three weeks ago at all of its theaters outside the city limits. Business has pieked up because of the reduction. i Talking pictures: The trouble hajsn't ended yet for Francis Ford Coppola's "One from the Heart." Scheduled to open here tomorrow, the expensive romantic fantasy has bejm withdrawn by Columbia Pictures because of disappointing business elsewhere. The distributor will test a new advertising campaign in six cities. tAlso postponed is "Quest for Fjfre," Fox's caveman epic which, conversely, is doing strong business ii its first bookings. The film opens here April 9. ;!No shortage of new movies for the Easter holiday period, by the i 71 ' t George Anderson way. "Personal Best," the controversial film with Mariel Hemingway as a lesbian athlete, and "I Ought to Be in Pictures," Neil Simon's latest with Walter Matthau, open on March 26. And on April 2, no less than seven films will debut: "Cat People," remake of the classic horror film with an "A" cast including Malcolm McDowell and Nastassia Kinski; "A Little Sex," first theatrical film from the MTM company of TV fame; "VictorVictoria," the Julie Andrews-James Garner sex-switch comedy which is getting good advance word; "Some Kind of Hero" with Richard Pry or; "Paradise," a variation on "The Blue Lagoon"; "Silent Rage," a Chuck Norris kung fu horror flick; and "Robin Hood," a reissue of the Disney animated film. On the road: Pittsburgh Ballet Theater won rave reviews for its recent quickie tour of the South with "Giselle." Mircille Lettrrier's dancing in the title role won acclaim from everyone including Patrick Frantz, PBT director, who called her "an absolute revelation" and said her performance brought tears to his eyes. . . . Jean Staplcton and Bill Putch decided not to take their revival of "The Late Christopher Bean" to Broadway after all. Even though the show grossed 486,928 and drew 33,376 people in its 45-day run at the Kennedy Center in Washington, the show was closed. Feeling was that it was "too sweet" for New York. Meanwhile, they're planning for the new season at the Totem Pole Playhouse in Caledonia State Park, Fayetteville, Pa. Stapleton opens the season June 5 in Eralyn Williams' "The Corn Is Green." 'Then Putch plays the lead in "Apple of His Eye" starting June 29. Also on the schedule: the U.S. premiere of "Taking Steps" by Alan Ayckbourn, (July 13-25); the musical "1776" (July 27-Aug. 15); "Romantic Comedy," (Aug. 17-29); the thriller "Deathtrap," (Aug. 31-Sept. 12). Townfolk: Tim Stevens has picked "Blue Monday," one of my favorites, as the next single from his current album. Should be in the stores by now Tom Stechscbulte, whose parents are Dr. and Mrs. Don Stechscbulte of Mt. Lebanon, has a role in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play "Crimes of the Heart." He was also in "First Monday in October" with Henry Fonda. "Crimes of the Heart," by the way, is one of the attractions on the Post-Gazette spring theater tour. . . . From Nashville, Sandy Mason reports that her song "All I Wanna Do in Life" has been recorded in a new Terri Gibb? album to be released April 1, and her "Only Love" will be released in versions by Don Williams on March 15 and Johnny Cash in May. Punked out: To no one's great surprise, former New York Dolls guitarist Johnny Thunders failed to show up at the Electric Banana in Oakland Saturday night. "His manager was there, his band was there, the place was packed, but he didn't show," said club manager Johnny Zarra, who dropped the cover charge from $7 to $5. "He called from New York about 9 o'clock and said he missed his plane." The Daughters and Pittsburgh band The Five entertained, "and no one seemed to mind," Zarra said. Next Friday's act, Polyrock, is considered more reliable. Musical notes: Pianist Christopher O'Riley, a former Pitts-burgher, made his Washington debut last Sunday in a recital at the Terrace Theater of the Kennedy Center. . . . David Stock has been signed to compose the music for "The Chemical People," the nine-part series on teen-age drug and alcohol abuse to be produced by WQED. The Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble will play the score for the film Former Pittsburgh soprano Janet Wieczorek, now living in Minneapolis, has been accepted in the Minnesota Onera's voune artists group. As an experimental project-the group performs an opera high school students, written in part-by the students themselves. Local angles: Bobby Vintori'i "She Will Survive" continues to sell well. All proceeds from the sale dF' the record will be given to Polish relief. Vinton will play the Front!' Row in Cleveland March 19-21. W' Carolyn Laurie Kapner of Squirrel" Hill, a drama student at Kenyotr College, directed Elizabeth AidU," Alan's daughter, in a productions the college of the two-character play "The Woods" by David Mamet The Kapner family was treated-lb brunch by the Aldas shortly after -the opening. Tom Kapner, Carolyn's., father, a stockbroker with Panic Webber here, said, "I heard so many . great things about Alda that I thought there had to be at least ong, thing wrong with him. But he more -than lived up to his reputation aa Nice Guy." 10 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS! .Vfi o I , Mi olden PG 3r BARGAIN MATINEE 1.7 ALL SHOWS BEFORE 6 P HOLIDAYS lit SHOW ONL (WED. $1.00 till 6 P.M.
