At nearly 40 years old, it’s a cramped, crowded showcase — complete with old, torn seats — for the Piedmont Unified School District’s many productions, including PHS plays, musicals, dance performances, school assemblies, parent education programs, the a cappella revue, as well as the iconic annual Bird Calling Contest. Residents have discussed and debated renovating, upgrading or replacing the theater in recent years, and for the past two years, the district has held public meetings to solicit input from residents. In addition, architects and facilities planners spent more than a year developing a plan for renovating the theater.

“The Internship” (PG-13, 119 minutes, Fox): Two middle-aged men, both suddenly unemployed and, in one case, facing foreclosure, decide their wisest move is to apply for unpaid internships at Google even though they possess zero technical skills, barely know what Instagram is and often refer to the Internet as “the online.” vintage black 1950s ballerina with red lipstick figurines with a ballet skirt made of fabric. retro 13 cm - 5,1" super cute Anything resembling post-economic-recession logic clearly got chucked out the window here, along with the acknowledgment that Bing and Yahoo exist, But hey, the whole point of “The Internship” is to reunite Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, whose mile-a-minute-meets-super-mellow chemistry made “Wedding Crashers” a massive hit in 2005 and puts them in ridiculous situations that prove moxie and determination always overcome actual competence, That this overlong, often preposterous comedy succeeds at all (which it does, occasionally) proves that the Vaughn/Wilson charm can still work a measure of magic, Former watch salesmen Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson) improbably snag those coveted intern slots and, gobsmacked and Googly-eyed, report to work, where they learn that all interns will be divided into teams that must complete a series of challenges, At the end of the internship, members of the winning team collect the ultimate prize: full-time jobs, In short order, two 40-somethings who can barely work a webcam find themselves attempting to fix coding bugs, develop apps and, for some strange reason, win Quidditch matches, Contains sexuality, some crude humor, partying and language, Extras include commentary with director Shawn Levy and “Any Given Monday” featurette, Also, on Blu-ray: deleted scenes..
It didn’t work out that way, and today, performances of his music are rare. But Morgan apparently believes in the Third Symphony, which is aptly named and filled with the sounds of nature. A sumptuous slow movement with braided woodwind parts and an energetic scherzo are bookended by outer movements featuring writing for warm strings and gleaming brass. The elements are all there, yet the predominant effect of Raff’s score is one of unremitting blandness. The performance ran 45 minutes without the emergence of a single memorable theme. Morgan did his best to make the score sound like it mattered, but it came across sounding remarkably unremarkable.
