Movies, Deulin Pianos Benefit The Palace

Dim the lights and pop the popcorn because Keys To The City’s  popular dueling piano players are returning to Waterbury for the Palace Theater’s third annual end-of-the-season celebration, Keys Goes to the Movies, on Saturday, June 2, at 7 pm. Tickets for the movie-themed fundraising event are $50, and can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at www.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the Box Office, 100 East Main Street in Waterbury.

In honor of the Palace’s early years as a silent film and movie house, this year’s event pays tribute to the stars and staples of the silver screen. Following a red carpet arrival, the first 250 guests will be ushered onto the Palace stage and seated at one of the night’s movie-themed tables, where they'll be transported to a variety of locations from Hollywood’s famous films, including the Moroccan coast of “Casablanca” and the terrifying terrain of “JurassicPark.”

The evening’s entertainment will once again be provided byKeys to the City’s dueling piano players, whowill tackle the crowd’s musical requests, along with memorable songs from  popular soundtracks, including Grease and Saturday Night Fever.Local vocalist Leo Dimo will also perform for guests during the event’s cocktail hour.

The night will feature food stations byEmily’sCatering Group, complimentary cocktails (two per person), and a livedrawing announcing the eight winners of thePalace's 2012 Annual Raffle.  Last minute tickets will be available on the night of the event so guests will have one last chance to enter to win a Grand Prize tropical vacation for two to Costa Rica.

Created by committee members Emma Barone, Cathy Bochicchio,Christine Jones, Liz LaCava, Terry Longo, Lynnette Piombo, Dawn Maiorano, Nicki Maiorano, and Sharon Zilahy, the Palace’s originalKeys to Our Future event was held in 2010 as the culmination to the theater’s fifth anniversary season. As a result of the evening’s fundraising success, it returns to the Palace stage for a third year with proceeds once again benefitting the theater’s Annual Fund.

Keys Goes to the Movies is sponsored in part by Emily’s Catering Group, Arts & Tourism Committee - City ofWaterbury, Maiorano Funeral Home,Powerstation Events,Universal Copy andWATR Radio 1320AM.
