Hello Movie Lovers!

Another season of the Jewish Film Series is about to begin.  The film committee spent the summer eating and previewing films.  While the food was always good, the same couldn’t be said of the films.  However, the committee found some standouts that are really great! In fact, with the diverse selection of films, this could be our best season yet.

Last year, we introduced the TBI Stage Door Deli West and it was a great success. This season we will continue the tradition.   Stage Door Deli West provides dinners that are our only fundraisers for the film series.  Because lots of planning goes into the deli meal service , we require reservations and a pre-payment. Click here to view this season's Stage Door Deli West menu.

You can make reservations by calling Elizabeth Kassel at 559-439-9638 or click here to complete the online form or here to download a printable form. Payment deadline for deli meal will be the Thursday prior to our film event. Deli meals are non-refundable and cannot be applied to future meals. New this year will be the Deli Season Ticket, all 4 dinners for $40. Film season tickets for all 8 films is $50.  

You can prepay by sending a check to:
