On Friday, Nov. 16, Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice and Sussex County Community College present an exclusive screening of LOVE, GILDA, at 6:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. In honor of his sister Francine Feder and family friend Cathy Hogstrom Stiller, five-time Emmy award winner, Executive Producer of LOVE, GILDA, Alan Zweibel and his wife Robin, also an Executive Producer on the film, will hold a question and answer session after the screening.

In her own words, comedienne Gilda Radner reflects on her life and career. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), LOVE, GILDA opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.

Gilda Radner puts a smile on the faces of people who remember watching her as one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, where she created and portrayed such now-classic comic characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. She quickly rose to fame in television, movies and on Broadway, and was declared ‘one of America’s sweethearts.’ LOVE, GILDA, directed by Lisa D’Apolito, is a true autobiography, told in Gilda’s words and in her own voice. Working with the Radner Estate, D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggle with cancer.

Alan Zweibel, executive producer of LOVE, GILDA, and his wife Robin, also executive producer of the movie will be at the screening and will hold a questions and answer session following the movie.

This screening event presented by Karen Ann Quinlan and Sussex County Community College is FREE and open to everyone in the community. Those wishing to attend the exclusive screening need to register to reserve their seats at KarenAnnQuinlanHospice.org/LoveGilda. We are expecting full-capacity at this event so early registration is suggested to this free event.
