LBO Coincidence

A Nation of Immigrants or a Closed Society?

Sept 23, 11am @ Art Theatre Long Beach









In conjunction with The Consul, LBO and Gregorio Luke invite you to an exploration of immigration issues from a historical and practical perspective. Mr. Luke comments: “I cannot think of a more timely subject. Immigration has become one of the defining issues of our day."

LBO Cinema

The Immigrant (2013)

Sept 30, 11am @ Art Theatre Long Beach








The Immigrant is a powerful companion story to The Consul by Menotti. In 1921 Ewa and her sister Magda sail to New York from their native Poland. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined. Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, she quickly falls prey to opportunists.
