First a blizzard/ice storm cancelled our night of Teenage Rebellion and now a pandemic. We are thinking Date Bait and High School Confidential may not be meant to hit the big screen at Liberty Hall again just yet. Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns for our listeners, members, sustainers, and Cinema a Go-Go fans, we have decided to cancel the April 10 Cinema a Go-Go. We will keep you all updated on the next available date.

KPR Presents host Kaye McIntyre spent most of her spare time in February in KPR's Studio B helping with the live assist from NPR's coverage of the impeachment, and later in the month, the primaries and caucuses on KPR2. Kaye spent so much time in KPR's Studio B that soon the office was making jokes about her new residence. We interviewed Kaye and asked about her experience during this time.
