Jack Lemmon was one of the most beloved movie stars. A two-time Academy Award winner, he appeared in dozens of memorable films, including such classics as Some Like It Hot, Mister Roberts, The Odd Couple, Grumpy Old Men, Missing, The Apartment, and The China Syndrome.  Audiences loved him, because they felt they knew him.  The legendary actor’s son, Chris Lemmon, whose physical resemblance to his dad has often been remarked upon, does an enchanting job of channeling his dad in A Twist Of Lemmon. Based on Chris’ memoir of the same name, Chris Lemmon shares family tales, intimate father-son conversations, and anecdotes from and about his dad. The result is a vivid and enchanting portrait providing new insight into a man who charmed millions with his rascal's smile and his very human vulnerability.  In his distinctive voice and with a battery of his even more particular physical mannerisms, Chris delves into Jack’s early success in Hollywood, along with behind-the-scenes moments involving the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Cagney, Gregory Peck and his best friend Walter Matthau.  Limited Seating.  $40 all seats
