Directed by Rob Reiner with an Oscar nominated screenplay by Nora Ephron, this R-rated rom com spins the age-old question, in a witty and hilarious manner, of the differences between men and women. Starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, this film follows the evolution of their relationship over the course of 10 years. Weaving together many universal themes found in romantic relationships everywhere, When Harry Met Sally navigates through the arguments over shared possessions, high maintenance partners, rebounds after a breakup and, of course, the awkwardness of sex with a close friend.

Tickets for the Friday, March 22, performance of Iris DeMentt —  singer, guitarist, pianist and songwriter — and opening performer Kenna Elpers are also available at
