Re: “"Cops & Robbers" Onstage at


The matinee performances will be followed by an audience discussion with Piper and representatives from local violence prevention programs. These may be some of the most vital conversations the Oakland community will have about violence in our city, precisely because of the presence and voices of elders and young adults in the house.

For mature audiences only! Minimum recommended age 14 due to strong language and honest content.

"...My generation starting kicking butt in so many social, political and sexual ways. I caught the train and hung on!! Oh ya the train car was full of Lesbians. So why did I agree to play drums in a leopard skin dress slit up one side with no underwear? Was it because of Jane Dornacker? Why did I yell at Bill Graham? Why did I think hard core lesbian separatists would like my dick jokes? Wasn’t I cute? But it was Berkeley..." Karen Ripley

Re: “ABC Is Developing a Drama About Oakland City Hall

Due to the City of Oakland evicting the Oakland Film Center with very short notice, word is spreading fast in the film industry that Oakland does not wish to support filming, so the show will most likely be filmed elsewhere ... what a shame to loose jobs, marketing, and the many other positive aspects of hosting film :-(

Unless the City realizes that they cannot do anything with the land upon which the film center sits while the adjacent Winter Homeless Shelter remains occupied until the end of April, and allows the Film Center a decent amount of time to relocate.
