Cost of the trip: $58

Clara Kelley is not the experienced Irish maid hired to work in one of Pittsburgh’s grandest households. She’s a poor farmer’s daughter with nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, so Clara is pretending to be her . . . if she can keep up the ruse. Carnegie’s Maid tells the story of a brilliant woman who may have spurred  Andrew Carnegie toward philanthropy.

INDEPENDENT FILM: Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
February 25 at 7 p.m.
This is the deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome ex-Marine who landed in Hollywood after World War II and became a confidante, aide-de-camp, and lover to many of Hollywood’s greatest male—and female— stars. In the 1940s and 50s, Scotty ran a gas station in the shadow of the studio lots where he would connect his friends with actors and actresses who had to hide their true sexual identities. While the studio PR machines were promoting their stars as wholesome and monogamous, Bowers was fulfilling the true desires of many of them. 
Rating: Unrated Running Time: 1 hr. 38 min.

The Whitney Museum
Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again
Thursday, March 7
Cost of the trip: $58
includes transportation and gratuities.   Lunch on your own. 
Registration opens: Monday, February 11
Few American artists are as ever-present and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Through his carefully cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, Warhol understood the growing power of images in contemporary life and helped to expand the role of the artist in society. This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized by a U.S. institution since 1989—reconsiders the work of one of the most inventive, influential, and important American artists. Cost of the trip is $58 and includes Museum entry, guided tour, transportation, and gratuities. Lunch on your own. There are restuarants in the Museum and in close proximity to the Museum. Registration opens on Monday, February 11 in person at the PR office or online at eastmeadow.info. Walking through the museum and to restaurant of your choice.
