🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕 #lovethis #pizza The Little Theatre!!!

An amalgamation of the most awesome things – movies, pizza, popcorn, and a dash of nostalgia -- The Pizza-Popcorn Club has arrived at The Little 🍕🍿

What is it? If you’re familiar with “BOOK IT!” — the popular program that rewards reading with personal pan pizzas — we’re taking that formula, and putting a Little twist on it.

How does it work? Guests can pick up a Pizza-Popcorn Club punch card in The Little’s lobbies, or at the box office. After purchasing tickets to six movies at The Little, they’re rewarded with a free bag (any size) of pizza-popcorn, and they’ll be entered to win one of several Little prize packs. Punch cards are valid from September 1 to December 31, 2021.

Pizza-Popcorn?! Oh yes! It’s a free bag of Little Popcorn of any size, with the special ingredient – secret pizza seasoning. This magical concession snack combines the deliciousness of a personal pan pizza, with the reliable greatness of Little Popcorn.

Naturally, The Little is launching this initiative with the finest cinematic pizza: “Mystic Pizza” screening Sept. 1 and “Slice” screening Oct. 6. These two cheese-and-sauce-laden flicks will be screened in The Little’s historic Theatre 1. Tickets are $5 per person for each film, plus Pizza-Popcorn punch cards and stickers will be available. Bonus: Pizza will be on sale in the lobby, so yes, this is a Little Pizza Party.

Full Pizza-Popcorn details and terms at thelittle.org/ppc.

I apologize if I am posting to the wrong place, but I was unable to find a specific FB page for Connections with Evan Dawson. I was just listening to the discussion concerning "toxic positivity." I understand that when an individual is doing some self-reflection or therapy, there are times when it's good for a person to acknowledge that they wear a proverbial mask in public trying to make it seem like they've got everything together and that everything is fine. Allowing ourselves to feel feelings is healthy. Wearing a false happy mask just to make other people more comfortable can be pyschologically unhealthy. However, to some how say that positivity despite one's circumstances is toxic is self-defeating. Yes, it's foolish to ignore reality and to be in denial, but then to remain in a constant negative mindset will lead to people leading miserable lives. To steal a quote, positivity is a force multiplier.
So great to hear Julia on the air as I stream classical music on my desktop computer from my home office in Oneonta, NY!
