Prior to the film screening, there will be a pre-show discussion hosted by the series guest curator Jon Burlingame, one of the nation's leading writers on music for film and television, and expert on the music of Elmer Bernstein.

Starring Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert, Far From Heaven tells a story that crosses both sexual and racial lines.

The story revolves around a privileged suburban family whose lives are filled with daily family etiquette, social events at the club, and an overall desire to keep up with the Joneses.

The family is turned upside down when both husband and wife are faced with choices that not only create a gossip mill for the entire community but also change their lives forever.

The Elmer Bernstein Memorial Film Series was established by the SBCPA to honor the life and work of noted film composer and Santa Barbara resident, Elmer Bernstein.

The series presents an annual selection of films noteworthy for the importance of their musical scores to the telling of each film’s unique story.

Tickets prices range from $10-$20, and are available through The Granada Theatre’s Box Office, 899-2222.  Dates and film titles are subject to change.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
