Unique Intimate housing to help women and families in need achieve their goals

Unique Intimate housing to help women and families in need achieve their goals
Nestled in Penn Hills, The Muslim Women's Association of Pittsburgh's Guest House provides clean, safe, and peaceful shelter for women and their families who qualify. That's what we do best. The home is maintained and supervised by volunteers, we have no paid staff, and is first come first serve. Financial needs of the Guest House are met by individual donations and proceeds from the Few of a Kind Store. The Guest House is the newest project of the Muslim Women's Association of Pittsburgh, which has had a Pittsburgh chapter for over 100 years. It's currently going in to it's 10th year of operation. Before a woman becomes a guest, an intake is conducted so that we have a good idea if they'll be compatable with the other women staying in the house. Also, their goals are accounted for, and many women have goals to get a more permenant living situation, a job, remedy family challenges, or if they're a student visiting, etc. The number one qualifiation though, they have no other place to go. We do refer guests as needed to resources that are available to any citizen, and give them bus passes so they can get to where they need to be to access these resources. We try to assist and make recommendations, we refer guests to organizations such as a free medical clinic in Braddock, local food banks, public schools, the free stores nearby, public housing, and more. Since it is a smaller house, we only take 10 guests at a time; we are not number driven, we want to do a quality job for whoever is here with us. Our rules are consistent with most guest houses, like human relations amongst residents and limited stay. The recommended stay is usually 3 months, but we can modify that timing according to the needs of the guest. We're regulary checking in with the guests to make sure they are working towards their goals, and up to date technology is available as well. Our main policy: if there's space, no guest that qualifies will be turned away, and no guest is forced to leave, unless they have a place to go. This is a place that originally, we thought it would service moslty Muslim women. But we've found that there are other women who qualify but who aren't Muslim, and if there's room, we take them. Women have different needs, and a more intimate family setting allows them to have those needs met. We exist to meet the unique needs for each woman - we look at them indivdually, not generally. Some have practices that are not accomodated to in public settings or other shelters. We give our guests a quiet, peaceful setting where women can reflect on their situation and plan for their futures. Sometimes, friendships develop within the house, and relationships last past the time they are living at the shelter. Some women even decide to live together after their time at the guest house. Other community food stores, like Paddy Cake Bakery in Bloomfield, Saleem's in the Hill District, and churches, have offered the Guest House free items for the guests, like food, coffee, etc. We are always looking to partner with other organizations and institutions in the area for collaboration, such as self care practices and nutrition for the women and children in the house. We are presently looking for volunteers to help out with landscaping. Currently, the Guest House is at capacity, but if you're a woman or family in need, please visit the Muslim Women's Association of Pittsburgh's website.

Acclaimed Vintage Rom-com Pillow Talk, with Rock Hudson and Doris Day, Screens at The Lindsay Theater June 11
Spicy 1950s rom-com Pillow Talk, starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson, will screen Tuesday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m. at The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club. Day stars as Jan, an interior decorator, with Hudson as Brad, a composer and playboy, who share a telephone party line and a mutual dislike"until Brad sees Jan in person and hatches a plan to win her heart. The film was nominated for five Oscars and won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. "Pillow Talk is a funny, heartwarming film that harkens back to the premise of the original screwball comedies, specifically a hilarious battle of the sexes," says Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club president Wendy Whittick, who will introduce the picture. "This film revitalized the careers of Hudson and Day, recasting him as a comic actor and giving her a sexier image. It was such a success that they were paired in two subsequent films." The film topped the U.S. box office for seven consecutive weeks, and grossed nearly $19 million, then considered a huge amount. It was named to the Library of Congress' National Film Registry in 2009, recognized for its cultural, historic and aesthetic significance. Pillow Talk is "one of the most lively and up-to-date comedy-romances of the year," said The New York Times in its original 1959 review. "It is really the clever witty screenplay that accounts for much of the sparkle in this film. With a CinemaScope screen to play on, (the screenwriters) and director Michael Gordon have much fun. And that fun is transmitted to the audience in an easy and generous flow of ingeniously graphic situations and nimble repartee." Tickets are on sale now! The Lindsay is an independent, film-driven nonprofit located at 418 Walnut St. in Sewickley.

IF: Sensory Friendly Screening of Animated/Live Action Tale Set for May 25 at The Lindsay Theater
A sensory friendly screening of the new John Krasinski film IF is set for Saturday, May 25, at 10:30 a.m. at The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center. All tickets will be discounted to $8.75 for this special event. IF relates the funny and touching story of a girl who can see people's imaginary friends, and sets out to reunite the "pretend" playmates with the kids who loved them. "Imaginary friends are not just these adorable creations, they are time capsules for our hopes, dreams, ambitions," says Krasinski. "I wanted people to leave this movie believing in something bigger and believing in something beautiful." IF features Ryan Reynolds, Cailey Fleming and a star-studded cast of faces and voices including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Awkwafina, Bradley Cooper and Blake Lively. The Lindsay's sensory friendly screenings are geared to families and individuals who are impacted by autism or other special needs, and enables the entire family to participate in the cinematic experience. No trailers are shown to reduce "sit time," dim house lights remain on throughout the screening and volume is lowered.

Pittsburgh Moving Picture Festival Celebrates Region’s Cinema, Brings Classic Romero Film, Indie Trailer/Screenplay Competition to The Lindsay
A 45th anniversary screening of George Romero's classic zombie film Dawn of the Dead, along with the Double Feature: Trailer Bash and Raging Pages trailer and screenplay competitions, will highlight the Pittsburgh Moving Picture Festival, set for Sunday, May 19, at The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center. A celebration of the art of cinema and the region's rich motion picture tradition, the event also includes a Q&A with actors from Dawn of the Dead, filmed at the Monroeville Mall and considered one of the most influential horror films of all time. The afternoon begins at 12:30 p.m. with the Double Feature trailer and screenplay competitions, a curated program of Official Selections of coming attractions, all of which are eligible to earn one of the premiere trailer trophies on the festival circuit"the "Tabby""for Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Score, overall Best Trailer and the Audience Favorite award! This event is free to the public but reservations are requested to ensure seating for all. At 1:30 p.m., in collaboration with the George A. Romero Foundation's "Romero Lives!" series, the festival continues with a 30-minute Q&A with Dawn of the Dead actors Melissa Dunlap ("Airport Zombie Kid"), Bob Michelucci ("Scope Zombie") and"in a very rare public appearance"Jeannie Jeffries ("Blond Zombie"). The one-of-a-kind panel is hosted by fellow "zombie talent" veteran and director/producer Mike Ancas (Day of the Dead, Chasing Zombies). Following the Q&A, at 2 p.m., watch Dawn of the Dead as it was intended to be seen: on the big screen.

The plot follows two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter and his television executive girlfriend who seek refuge from a zombie epidemic in a secluded shopping mall. The late critic Roger Ebert gave the movie four out of four stars and proclaimed it one of the best horror films ever made. Empire named it one of the 500 Greatest Movies of all Time in a 2008 survey. The film also launched the career of makeup and special effects artist Tom Savini, a Pittsburgh native who went on to work on classic horror films such as Friday the 13th parts 1 and 4, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Tickets are on sale now! The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center, formerly The Tull Family Theater, is an independent, film-driven arts nonprofit located at 418 Walnut St. in Sewickley.
