#var:page_name# cover

A meditation on creativity and technology. CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER is a documentary portrait of artists, writers, and collectors who remain steadfastly loyal to the typewriter as a tool and muse, featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, Sam Shepard, and Richard Polt. It movingly documents the struggles of California Typewriter, one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking.

Join us at the ESQUIRE THEATRE on 11/5 at 1:00pm were Professor Richard Polt, who is featured in the film and author of The Typewriter Revolution will be on site for an introduction to the film as well as a Q and A after followed by a presentation and Teen Poetry Reading by Wordplay Cincy, a Northside literacy program dedicated to helping Cincinnati's young people fulfill their potential by making connections through reading, writing and storytelling (often with typewriters!)

Join us at Sitwells Coffee House before the show for a TYPE-IN starting at 11:00am! Bring a Typewriter or use a public one. Type, talk, eat, drink, laugh!
